During the annual Miami art fair week, the art world descends on the city in the sun, and this year we’re trying something new. Hypersalon is a weeklong series of salon-style exhibitions, daily artist talks, and hosted conversations examining networked culture in contemporary art. This unique gathering is presented by Brooklyn’s Transfer gallery and Paris’s Xpo Gallery, with Hyperallergic as proud partner.
Taking place November 29–December 7 in South Beach, Hypersalon will feature a wide array of engaging and intimate events. Both Transfer and Xpo will curate their own exhibitions, while a third space will show rotating selections of moving-image artwork chosen by guest curators, among them Christiane Paul and Manhattan’s Postmasters gallery.
For daily artist talks, emerging contemporary practitioners, including Carla Gannis, Rollin Leonard, and Claudia Mate, will present new work over light brunch.
Afternoon salons will bring together artists, curators, dealers, collectors, and others to discuss relevant topics in contemporary art, and in the evenings, different organizations and groups will host cocktails and events. One of those will be Hyperallergic, celebrating the launch of a digital catalogue of writings, artist portfolios, interviews, and photo essays that will be published over the course of the week. Other confirmed hosts include Electric Objects, Cloaque, and Eyebeam.
All the gatherings at Hypersalon will be intimate. Anyone is welcome to request an invitation online.
We hope you’ll slow down and join us in Miami for a thoughtful week contemplating the conditions of networked culture in contemporary art.
