Zones Art Fair announces a new section to be launched at the 7th edition of ZONES Contemporary Art Fair—Performia1, which will begin on December 3, 2013, in the Miami Design District. The fair dates are December 2–9, 2013 (open from 10:00am to 6:00pm) with a preview date of November 21, 2013 (6:00-9:00pm). All artists participating in Performia1 will showcase new work within the art fair context. The new format will create a very exiting program of the fair alongside the major sections entitled New Visions. 3850 North Miami Court, Miami, Florida (one block east of North Miami Avenue, between NE 38th and 39th Street, west of the post office).

Highlights of Performia1: Zones Art Fair is wired to the cultural rhythm of Miami through its ten years of work with the artistic community as an activator in the cultural scene of this city presenting the best-unrepresented artists through their unique and exciting programs. We seek to make non-represented artists visible to collectors and curators. This year’s Zones will merge the fair concept with performance festival to create a niche performance based fair that includes live performances, exhibitions, video screening, talks and music. What is different about Zones Art Fair is the intimate scale. Talk one-to-one with the artists. Find out about the Real Miami.

Zones will present a fascinating program of performances, conversations and video screening including performances by Jill Burton, Pancho Lopez, and Nicole Soden. Zones’ focus is on making the work of up-and-coming artists more accessible to the public. This year’s edition crosses multiple creative disciplines to offer a daily exciting program of live action performances by international artists under the title Performia1. Performia1 is the first edition of a performance festival, which seeks to introduce performance art to the art fair platform. Performia1’s aim is to inform viewers of the potential capacities of performance art today. The fair offers visitors a detour from the labyrinthine art-fair set-up. One can encounter anything from sculpture, video screenings and paintings to performance pieces, all in a casual atmosphere. Zones’ new location at the Design District, across from Locust Projects and close to the De La Cruz Collection allows for viewers to explore an exciting and creative area of Miami.
