While CONTEXT may not have quite the name appear of Art Basel or Art Miami, it is one of the must-see events each December for Miami Art Week.

This year, it will take place with the other fairs from Tue, Nov 30, 2021 – Sun, Dec 5, 2021, and will feature some of the best work from national and international galleries that showcase emerging, mid-career and cutting-edge artists.

With that in mind, let’s dive a bit deeper into CONTEXT to highlight why it shouldn’t be skipped over in favor of some of the bigger names.

About the CONTEXT Art Fair

CONTEXT was started in 2012 and since then has grown tremendously. It now runs side by side with Art Miami at the Art Miami Pavilion at One Herald Plaza.

The fair features galleries from around the world that show works by established artists as well as newer talent who are just starting their careers. Given its startup mentality, it is known for its incredible openness and ability for art lovers to interact with the artists and galleries.

Past Years

In past years, CONTEXT has hosted more than 100 galleries with works from over 1500 artists, in a range of mediums including some breathtaking installations. It has also included various satellite fairs, performances, and private events – and we all know we love a good private party.

In fact, that is why Artmatcher is throwing our own party this year. If you are interested in getting an invite, reach out for the details, and check out our app.
