Art Palm Beach becomes a spectacle each day, a panorama of immersive events for five days. Truly the next level art fair!
When the calendar flips to a new year, our area from Palm Beach to Jupiter Island comes alive with art, and more art. The finest in contemporary art comes to the Palm Beach County Convention Center January 16-20, 2019.
Art Palm Beach is not to be missed! Internationally renowned as the premier mid-winter contemporary art fair on Florida’s Gold Coast, ArtPalmBeach is a five-day fair. Bringing more than 85 international galleries to the Palm Beach County Convention Center, the 21st annual event showcases paintings, photography, sculpture and ceramics of the 20th and 21st centuries.
The Palm Beach County Convention Center is centrally in downtown West Palm |Beach. With 2500 available parking spaces, the Palm Beach County Convention Center offers a 9-story parking garage. It can be accessed off Okeechobee Boulevard (south side) and right turn onto Rosemary Avenue. The garage entrance is at the end of Rosemary Avenue. Several additional parking garages are available across the street at CityPlace for overflow parking needs. Restaurants and “shopportunities” are within a short walk at CityPlace across the street.
Erich Weiss will be this year’s guest curator of the fair’s new pavilions for art video, design and art performances. Weiss is currently the curator at large at Barcelona’s Picasso Museum, Rotterdam Institute: Museum for Architecture, Design & Digital Culture, as well as an art critic and curator specializing in Dada and Surrealism.
Video, performance art, art installations, and new technologies have become unique features of the fair offering collectors’ exposure to today’s emerging art trends.
