The Art Miami Show Group has officially announced the cancellation of the 2021 edition of Art Wynwood, set to take place February 11-15, and the Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary Fair, scheduled for March 18-21. The decision was made as a result of feedback from galleries and collectors expressing an interest in postponing the shows given continued concerns about COVID-19 in South Florida. The fairs will return during their regularly scheduled dates in 2022.
The Art Miami Show Group team has worked tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of all those who participate in the show’s productions, presenting an “All Secure” plan that was approved by Miami-Dade County and Palm Beach County, which provided optimism that the shows would take place in person this year. However, client feedback that continued concern around domestic and international travel, particularly to and from South Florida, would impact attendance, led them to the difficult decision to cancel the live shows.
“It is with much regret that we cancel the 2021 Editions of Art Wynwood and Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary Fairs. The safety and well-being of our clients, attendees and community remain the focus for us and we look forward to being back together again in-person as soon as possible.” says Executive Vice President Nick Korniloff.
Art Miami Show Group is moving forward with planning for its annual December Fairs; Art Miami and CONTEXT Art Miami scheduled to take place November 30 – December 5, 2021 along with Aqua Art Miami December 1 – 5, 2021. For more information, please visit www.artmiami.com
