"Call for Artists: Kaikai Kiki Launches GEISAI MIAMI"
2007-09-06 until 2007-10-01
Miami, FL, USA United States of America

Six years since the first inception of GEISAI in Japan in the summer of 2001, Kaikai Kiki announces GEISAI Miami, the American debut of a fair that has been a launch pad into the art world for many young artists. Organized by the artist-led art enterprise Kaikai Kiki, GEISAI Miami introduces an entirely new type of fair in the booming Miami art market, allowing artists to represent themselves and to present their work directly to an audience of collectors, art professionals and art enthusiasts. The fair will run concurrently with Art Basel Miami Beach, and will be hosted by PULSE Contemporary Art Fair at the Parliament Building of SOHO Studios in Miami’s Wynwood Art District from Wednesday, December 5 through Sunday, December 9, 2007.

Application for GEISAI Miami is open to artists of all nationalities that do not have ongoing commercial gallery representation at the time of their application. A jury of art world professionals, including Tom Eccles, Massimiliano Gioni, Walter Robinson, Lin Lougheed, and Carol Kino, will select approximately 20 artists from among the applicants. The selected artists will be invited to present their work in the Soho Building with no fee being charged for the booth that will be given to them.

Applications will be accepted at http://www.geisai.us/. The deadline for submitting applications is Monday, October 1st, 2007.

GEISAI Miami will occupy a 3,000 sq. ft. space on the second floor of the Parliament Building in the SOHO Studios facility.

Since its inception in 2001 in Japan, GEISAI has been held twice a year. By presenting a new art-collecting concept, allowing artists to exhibit their work directly, without a commercial gallery, to an audience of collectors, curators and art enthusiasts, GEISAI has established itself as an exceptional art fair. The name “GEISAI” is derived from the Japanese word for “art festival.” Such festivals would typically take place within a university or art school.
