COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach is to be involved in this year’s PULSE Miami Beach as part of Miami Art Week. Running from 1 to 4 December 2016, PULSE Miami Beach returns to Indian Beach Park, marking the 12th edition of PULSE Contemporary Art Fair in Miami.
This year, PULSE debuts its first Projects Special Commission featuring digital artist, Anne Spalter and her installation Miami Marbles. An extension of this unique installation will also be on view at the COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach Hotel which is located in the heart of the city’s famous Art Deco district. Spalter’s artwork will be exhibited throughout the hotel’s public areas such as the entrance, lobby and pool area.
Using photographs and video replicas of last year’s Miami Art Week, Spalter digitally alters and distils images of the city’s atmosphere, architecture and foliage to create contemporary landscapes. By abstracting Miami’s topography, Spalter encapsulates the vibrancy of the city within each of her expansive spheres. An augmented reality Marbles app can be download which will allow guests to engage with the orbs. Viewers will be able to explore kaleidoscopic moving videos on the spheres and discover virtual orbs around the fair.
One of the most anticipated events during Miami Art Week, PULSE Contemporary Art Fair is a well-respected source for the discovery of emerging to mid-career artists offering a comprehensive overview of the contemporary art market today. Founded in 2005, PULSE Contemporary Art Fair is an established part of the annual art calendar and is recognised for providing its international community of emerging and established galleries with a dynamic platform for connecting with a global audience.
