Interview with Georgia Mowry

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design is a leading international gallery specialised in contemporary art and collectible design. Based in The Netherlands, Priveekollektie actively works with a range of collectors, represents internationally recognised artists and designers, and provides a platform for up-and-coming talents to showcase their exceptional pieces.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

Priveekollektie exhibits pieces each year at Art Miami that have never been shown in America before. With a focus on the best artists with a European identity, we plan to bring new, exciting and interesting works based upon our three pillars: concept, quality, and value. The works shown feature a highly curated selection of new and exclusive works. One of these works to look out for is the hand tufted tapestry, Luxuria 99, by Dutch artist Catharina van de Ven.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

Priveekollektie recommends three things to visitors and collectors: to explore the restaurants and nightlife, to visit the private collections that specially open during the week but are normally not open to the public to view, and to have sheer enjoyment of the art crowd and audience that arrives in Miami for this week only.

Interview with Quirine Verlinde

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Founded by Laszlo Vertes, the eponymous gallery was conceived as an international exhibition platform specializing in 20th- and 21st-century art. Centrally located on the Bahnhofstrasse in Zürich the gallery builds and manages private and public collections, organizes exhibitions and gives lectures on art and art market related subjects. “With Vertes I tried to create a democratic space for the exploration and understanding of the inexhaustible diversity of art and its creators.“ Exceptional pieces by Albers, Calder, Chagall, Chamberlain, Condo Ernst, Francis, Kusama, Lichtenstein, Miró, Richter, Soulages, Vasarely, Warhol and Wesselmann are permanently on display in the 200 square meter gallery in Zurich.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

For the 2018 Edition of Art Miami we are showcasing a bold selection of 20th and 21st century paintings, works on paper and sculptures. Specific focus points are a variety of stabiles by Alexander Calder, mesmerizing Infinity Nets and Infinity Dots by Yayoi Kusama, intriguing portraits by George Condo and vibrant abstract works by Gerhard Richter.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

Collecting is about art, its creators, the history behind it, the development of our personal taste, spirituality, connection and a way of life. Collecting is piecing together the story of you a a collector human being in this world. The price and the name of the artist are of minor importance. What is important is the connection you feel with a particular work of art and that from the moment it hangs on your wall you keep discovering new elements that you did you did not see before. A work of art invites the beholder to stay and linger and adds an element of joy and wonder to every home.

Booth AM117

December 4 –9, 2018

Interview with Katarina Siltavuori

Briefly tell us about your gallery and what type of art you specialize in.

Galerie Forsblom, founded by Kaj Forsblom in 1977, holds a unique position on the Nordic art scene as one of the largest and most international contemporary art galleries by bringing international established artists to its exhibition spaces in Helsinki and Stockholm. While the exhibition programs consist of a wide range of media within the visual arts, Galerie Forsblom is highly profiled as presenting excellence in contemporary painting as well as sculpture.

What can visitors expect from your booth this year and what specific works should they pay attention to?

Galerie Forsblom showcases both established American artists, such as Peter Halley, Jacob Hashimoto, and Keith Sonnier and young Finnish rising stars, Toni R. Toivonen and Reima Nevalainen.

Our booth presents a coherent synergy between playfulness and harmony – the booth is curated with a joyful spirit as Peter Halley’s bright-colored, neo-geometric conceptualist works juxtapose Jason Martin’s large-scale monochromatic sculptural paintings which consist of thick surfaces of oil or acrylic gel.

The booth prevails a lingering harmonic atmosphere with Jacob Hashimoto’s works, which combine Japanese handicraft tradition with Anglo-American minimalism, Stephan Balkenhol’s raw and spontaneous wood sculptures, and Bernar Venet’s dynamic steel sculptures and arches, playing with gravity and three-dimensionality.

What tips would you share with new art collectors or fair visitors?

Be curious and ambitious. Let passion be your guide and trust your instincts. Buying art can be fun – and don’t be afraid to go big!
