Entering its fifth season, PULSE Contemporary Art Fair will move to Miami’s Ice Palace this December with an expanded presentation of international galleries and programming. The new venue provides PULSE with an enhanced platform for their signature programming series, including the launch of a new performance program featuring daily outdoor concerts. Held from Thursday, December 3 through Sunday, December 6, 2009, the fair will run concurrently with Art Basel Miami Beach.
The Miami debut of PULSE Performance will feature daily performances and concerts by young emerging artists such as Maria Jose Arjona, who was recently invited to be part of a workshop with Marina Abramovic, and whose daily performances will be among the highlights of the new programming. Notable musical talents in the outdoor concert and performance series include The Vivian Girls, The Blow, and Exene Cervenka.
Additionally, PULSE will present its signature program of large-scale sculptures and installations throughout the fair’s exhibition halls and lawn, as well as the PULSE Play> video lounge curated by João Ribas, Curator of Exhibitions at the MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, MA. Danny Baskin and Andy Schrock, featured in PULSE PRESENTS at ACADEMY 2009 hosted by Conner Contemporary Art, have also each been awarded space to present new projects at the fair.
Each year, one artist featured in IMPULSE, the section of the fair dedicated to solo artist presentations, is awarded a $2,500 cash prize. This year’s PULSE Prize will be awarded in honor of Adriaan van der Have, Founder and Director of Torch Gallery, who was an inspiring force in the art world for his dedication to the promotion of emerging artists. The winner will be announced Friday, December 4, 2009 during the PULSE Party at PLUNGE at the Gansevoort South.
