It’s Miami Art Week and that means a dizzying array of creative work is on display, bringing collectors and art lovers from around the world to see established artists alongside new talent. In addition to the anchoring fair of Art Basel Miami Beach, there are dozens of additional art fairs and events taking place throughout the city in every shape and form. SVA alumni are showing work throughout the city and the College has booths at two of the main fairs in Miami Beach: PULSE Miami Beach and Miami Project.
After three years at Miami Project, SVA Galleries is showing for the first time at the PULSE Miami Beach, which takes place from December 1 – 5 and features over 80 galleries from three continents.
Dan Halm (MFA 2001 Illustration as Visual Essay, BFA 1994 Illustration) has curated the SVA Galleries booth during Miami Art Week since 2007 and this year he brings together 12 recent SVA alumni for the show: Yasaman Alipour (BFA 2015 Photography), Richard Borashan (MFA 2015 Fine Arts), Stephany Dziegielewski (BFA 2015 Illustration), Nadine Faraj (MFA 2015 Fine Arts), Claire Haik (MFA 2015 Fine Arts), Logan Jackson (BFA 2015 Photography), Brandon Elijah Johnson (BFA 2015 Fine Arts), Ima Mfon (MPS 2015 Digital Photography), Katy Stubbs (BFA 2015 Illustration), Sam Nichols (MFA 2015 Art Practice), Quinn Tivey (MFA 2015 Photography, Video and Related Media), and Aran Winterbottom (MFA 2015 Fine Arts). The booth is S-219.
Just north, BFA Photography and Video hosts a booth of recent alumni work at Miami Project, curated by department chair Stephen Frailey. The booth features work by 12 recent alumni and one current student: Hanna Bradbury (2015), Hector Rene Membreno-Canales (2014), Manuela Garcia (2015), Fernando Pereira Gomes (2015), Logan Jackson (2015), SooKyung Jung (2016), Zach Krall (2015), Gina Maree De Naia (2014), Corey Olsen (2014), Antonio Pulgarin (2013), Tim Schutsky (2015), Thom Smith (2013), and Patricia Voulgaris (2013). The Miami Project runs from December 1 – 6 and the BFA Photography booth is located at B2.
The works at both booths are available for purchase and SVA does not collect a commission. All proceeds go directly to the artists.
SVA alumni are represented by galleries at many of the other fairs including Aqua, Art Basel, Art Miami, Context, Satellite and Scope.
