“More than just an Art Fair – it’s an artistic journey of discovery along Fort Lauderdale’s Intracoastal waterways,” said Andrew Martineau, Co-Founder | Director of Art Fort Lauderdale. “This Social Practice art piece and Art Fair explores what happens when the experience of viewing, purchasing and interacting with art is slowed down to encourage engagement, human interaction and social discourse both on the water-taxi journey and in a “home” where art eventually lives.”
Adding to the Fair’s goal of finding unique ways to view, interact with, and purchase art. The team behind the Fair have partnered with The Torosiete Museum of Contemporary Art to provide a virtual docent and interactive online gallery of all works being shown at the 2020 fair which also allows the attendee to purchase the work directly from their phone.
The 2020 exhibitors for (artINDIE ONE, artINDIE TWO) and artSTUDENT were chosen by our CoFounder | Director, with other works represented by Galleries; Torosiete Museum of Contemporary Art and GallerieY. Always, looking to create platforms for artists to exhibit. The Fair organizers have created a special section for Broward County-based high-school students to have work presented in the Fair.
“Giving students an introduction into the art world through this Fair, allows them to rub shoulders with a range of established and up-and-coming artists from all over the world. Plus, get an opportunity to garner constructive feedback in an atmosphere that appreciates the value of the arts and the next generation of creators,” says Evan Snow, Co-Founder, Managing Partner, Art Fort Lauderdale.
In addition, the Fair will feature Bahamas Haus (curated by Jennifer Nayak) – a unique art project and partnership with Ministry of Tourism Bahamas, sponsors and collectors Argus Advisors, legal, financial services provider and fine arts collection, based in Freeport. The Bahamas Haus will feature contemporary art, Junkanoo culture and the significant Caribbean art influences from the artists representing a number of the Islands of the Bahamas. In addition to waived fees for contributing artists and gallery partners, Art Fort Lauderdale will donate 10% of the art proceeds from Bahamas Haus to the rebuilding and art therapy efforts of The Grand Bahama Children’s Home, an orphanage and refuge for children in Freeport, recently flooded and forced to evacuate during Hurricane Dorian.
