Art Fort Lauderdale Announces Participating Artists for Third Edition, January 24 – 27, 2019
With strong returning artists and notable first time additions, Art Fort Lauderdale continues its global reach by including artists from Argentina, Puerto Rico, Canada, London, Italy, France, The Islands of the Bahamas and Trinidad & Tobago among many others.
“The third edition of Art Fort Lauderdale’s participating artists reflect the reach our fair has although still in its infancy, along with the opportunities it brings to individual artists from around the world not represented by a gallery,” said Andrew Martineau, Co-Founder | Director of Art Fort Lauderdale. “We look forward to welcoming the world in support of our 2019 artists, and for all to experience the numerous exhibits and events in January during the 1st annual Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week, which includes the 1st annual Sistrunk-A-Fair and the 1st annual AIA Fort Lauderdale Architectural Fair.”
Added to the allure of the fair's unique way to view, interact with, and purchase art, the team behind the fair has secured the first art fair appearance of Obvious - the three 25-year-olds that are shaking up the art world with the use of ink, canvas and a complex artificial algorithm to create an A.I. created image. The collective will have three pieces up for sale - one of which was recently purchased by a prominent New York collector, in addition to a scheduled talk sharing the process behind the first A.I. generated art piece during Art Fort Lauderdale’s artDISCOURSE Series taking place at NSU Art Museum (Horvitz Auditorium) on Sunday, January 27th at 2:30 pm.
The 2019 exhibitors were chosen by our Co-Founder | Director (artINDIE I and artINDIE II), Jen Clay and Sarah Michelle Rupert (artINTERACTIVE / interactive playhouse), and Lisa Rockford (artCURATED).
The show is bringing back its first year artINTERACTIVE home with the help of the talented curators of Interactive Initiatives (Jen Clay and Sarah Michelle Rupert) who will fill the entire home with immersive and interactive art projects by local and national artists. In addition, the 2019 fair will debut artCURATED - a home curated by the fair's first guest curator, Lisa Rockford - who is using the idea of a single enclosure with adjacent rooms as stimulus to create a journey for the viewer, staging the property with works that translate elements of life and existence for reflection.
