MIAMI BEACH — Ink Miami Art Fair, a salon-style fair within the Dorchester Hotel, opened its ninth edition on Wednesday, December 3. Exhibitors were housed in hotel suites, the “booth” a temporarily reclaimed room. The fair, as always, focused on works on paper, but strayed to include the occasional sculpture or drawing produced from cut-out steel.
Put on by the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA), the small, semi-outdoor fair hosted a mere 15 booths, making it pleasantly digestible. However, the rooms’ strange mix of ambient and lamp light made many of the works on view nearly impossible to fully appreciate or photograph.
For this year’s edition of Ink a site-specific exhibition took place in the fair’s Pulp Lounge consisting of works “stolen” from the other rooms. To take the strange concept to a more bizarre level, bedazzled gloves were left behind within the other booths serving as “clues” as to where each work had been stolen from.
Ink Miami Art Fair took place from Wednesday, December 3 to Sunday, December 7 at the Suites of Dorchester (1850 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida).
