“In celebration of the fair’s 20th anniversary we have commissioned a special curated exhibition, paintings, sculpture, photography, video, new technologies, performance art, and art installations, offering collectors exposure to today’s emerging art trends,”
Art Palm Beach founder Lee Ann Lester said in a statement.
As part of the county-wide Palm Beach Week, which runs through January 24th, the fair’s satellite events include art walks, performances, a fundraising gala, open studios, demonstrations, and museum exhibitions.
Other highlights include a discussion on the relationship between art and design with the honorary design chairperson of Art Palm Beach Campion Platt, a former honoree of Architectural Digest’s ‘AD100’ list, and the collector, curator and art historian Jane Hart. Additionally, ‘dialogues,’ a four day conference including 12 lectures and panel discussions, features leading experts and artists such as Perez Museum Miami’s chief curator Rene Morales.
Running concurrently, fair partner Art Synergy, a local art initiative representing nine art districts across Palm Beach county, is hosting 35 exhibition openings and evening events at galleries and local art and culture institutions. Amongst its exhibitions will be the 3rd annual Palm Beach Art Exhibition at Art Palm Beach, curated this year by Rolando Chang Barrero and featuring 23 artists.
