Fabien Castanier Gallery is excited to present new work by contemporary artists Speedy Graphito, JonOne, RERO and Mark Jenkins at the 2nd annual CONTEXT Art Miami fair from December 3-8, 2013, with the VIP Preview on Dec 3rd. This will be the first time JonOne and Mark Jenkins will be exhibited at Miami Art Week and they will both be present at the fair.
In addition, the gallery will showcase a selection of historic graffiti works from the 1980s, considered one of the most important eras of the movement. The gallery will present pieces from three influential graffiti artists, Futura 2000, Dondi White, and Rammellzee. The works exhibited will be some of their signature pieces, quintessential artistic statements that would be the driving force of graffiti art from that decade and beyond.
Special Projects: CHECK OUT
In partnership with LaRete Art Projects for the CHECK OUT special exhibition, Fabien Castanier Gallery will present an installation by Mark Jenkins. Known for his provocative site specific work, Jenkins will create a piece entitled “High Noon.”
CONTEXT – the sister fair to Art Miami, now in its 24th year as the longest-running art fair in Miami – is committed to the development and reinforcement of emerging and mid-career artists. Providing the ultimate platform for established and emerging galleries to present cutting-edge works, CONTEXT creates a meaningful dialogue between artists, galleries and collectors. In its second year, sixty-five international galleries, vetted by a selection committee of contemporary art professionals, will exhibit highlights from their gallery programs, solo artist exhibitions and curated projects. From December 3rd to 8th, 2013, CONTEXT will take place in a freestanding 45,000-square-foot pavilion directly adjacent to the Art Miami pavilion; the two fairs will be joined by an outdoor café, lounge and curated open-air art exhibition.
