Hey, Miami! Light Impressions Exhibits at Red Dot Art Fair This Weekend
The first-ever digital iPhone® photography installation showcasing photography from 40 international iPhoneographers displayed on 40 Apple iPad’s is a highlighted work at Red Dot Art Fair, a unique fair that celebrates today’s emerging, mid-career and established artists.
The installation makes its way back to Miami this weekend for another high-profile event. Light Impressions: A Celebration of iPhone® Photography will be part of Red Dot – Miami, running concurrently with Miami’s huge Art | Basel event. Enough people to fill a football stadium (U.S. or Global football) are expected to the event over the next five days. If you’re in or near the Miami area, be sure to check out Red Dot and find Light Impressions.
One of iPhoneography’s more unique roadshows is Studio B’s Light Impressions. It’s made appearances all over the US, including galleries in Austin Texas, The Eye Gallery in Des Moines, and this year’s very high profile Los Angeles Mobile Arts Festival.
Light Impressions: A Celebration of iPhone® Photography showcases the curated work of 40 iPhoneographers from around the world on 40 iPad units. It is the first iPhone photography exhibit of this scale and importance in the world. “This is truly a groundbreaking showcase. Never before has iPhone photography been exhibited with this level of deference to the art form,” said Studio b. founder and renowned commercial and editorial photographer Colleen Duffley.
She continued, “Four years ago, our very first creative showcase at Studio b. was a global camera-phone event. Subsequently, we elevated iPhoneography to the art form level it deserves by creating the Light Impressions installation. We demonstrated the extent to which Studio b. is dedicated to growing and changing with technology. It is extremely flattering to be a guest exhibitor at Intrepid Art Gallery during Red Dot Art Fair, a gallery and event that recognize the evolution of the relationship between art and technology.”
This is going to be one a huge event this weekend and one of the largest events so far in terms of traffic as far exposing new patrons to the art of iPhoneography.
Red Dot Art fair is a highly successful art fair taking place concurrent with Art | Basel Miami Beach, December 5-9, 2012. Over 90 national and international dealers exhibit contemporary and secondary market, photography, painting, sculpture and works on paper in a luxurious 60,000 square-foot venue. This year, Red Dot includes a solo section – solo projects – featuring smaller booths for single artist projects.
Red Dot is located directly across the street from other high-caliber art fairs such as Art Miami, Scope and Art Asia in Miami’s Wynwood Art District. Red Dot holds a prime location within this art fair mecca. Last year, Red Dot Miami had over 25,000 international visitors – the number expected to increase this year with the stronger economy. In fact, due to the multiple high-profile events in the district, they are expecting over 55,000 visitors to Red Dot this year.
Red Dots Fair strives to create a fair for gallery specializing in the emerging, midcareer and established artists that seek to present work of lasting value and beyond current trends.
