With a New Bicoastal Approach, Art Palm Beach and the LA Art Show Will Highlight Climate Change in 2023, δημοσίευση στο Artnet News [19/1/2023]Marilena Pateraki
This past November, Scott Diament and Rob Samuels of the Palm Beach Show Group announced the acquisition of Art Palm Beach, adding the fair to the group’s illustrious roster of national shows. Also under Palm Beach Show Group’s banner is the LA Art Show, the largest and longest-running modern and contemporary art fair in Los Angeles. Both Art Palm Beach and the LA Art Show are helmed by Kassandra Voyagis, who was first appointed to the position at the latter show in 2021, following a 16-year tenure as executive director. Of the development, Voyagis said, “We will be creating a new and completely revamped Art Palm Beach. Under our leadership, we will be taking this show in a new and exciting direction, marrying both fairs in a dynamic, state-of-the-art, bicoastal enterprise.”
Hosting over 80 art galleries, Art Palm Beach will run from January 25 through January 29. The 2023 edition will be thematically focused on climate change and will have the exciting addition of immersive experiences that engage with the climate crisis—specifically the influence human activity has on the planet and the Anthropocene. The fair will also debut DiverseartPB, the counterpart to DiverseartLA, a signature curatorial facet of the LA Art Show. Both projects are curated by Marisa Caichiolo, who said of the project and theme, “Contextualizing through immersive experiences and installations, we can all work together on solutions.” As part of the endeavor, DiverseartPB aims to support Florida nonprofit arts organizations and institutions, with the inaugural edition presenting a special exhibition of multimedia artist Marcos Lutyens. There will also be a multifaceted collaboration between artist Guillermo Anselmo Vezzosi and Dr. Eric Larour of the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab.
