GEISAI Miami, an art fair hosted by PULSE in which artists represent themselves was pretty weak last year, but if visibility and perhaps a few sales is all you seek it may not be such a bad opportunity. Hopefully the fair can continue to coast on the laurels of PULSE. The application deadline is October 15th, so that’s not a lot of time to put together material. Additional details from the press release below.
Kaikai Kiki is calling for entries for GEISAI Miami, the second U.S. edition of the art fair conceived by Takashi Murakami. GEISAI is an art fair model that allows artists to represent themselves in a professional art fair setting and present their work directly to an audience of collectors, art professionals and art enthusiasts. Artists of all nationalities without gallery representation are invited to apply, with no restrictions on the medium, at www.geisai.us. A jury of art professionals will review all applications and select a limited number of artists to receive free booths. Applicants must be able to present original artworks on-site in Miami during all five days of the fair. GEISAI Miami will be held Wednesday, December 3 through Sunday, December 7, 2008
