The display of fine art within the walls of exceptional real estate is a shared passion worldwide. From museums to private estates, the synergy between these disciplines is as timeless as it is deep-rooted. And for the fifth consecutive year, Christie’s International Real Estate, along with Hilton & Hyland, furthered that tie by sponsoring Art Miami, one of the world’s top-ranking international contemporary and modern art fairs. Hilton & Hyland was proud to join Christie’s International Real Estate in tandem with eight other Affiliates to serve as the “Official Luxury Real Estate Partner” of the fair, along with Art Miami’s sister fair, CONTEXT Art Miami.
“Art Miami, one of the most heavily attended fairs in the world, has proven to be a unique and powerful marketing venue to promote both fine art and fine real estate,” says Rick Moeser, Executive Director, Christie’s International Real Estate. “The audience is wonderfully diverse, beginning with the seasoned collector and luxury real estate buyer to the emerging market of Millennial buyers, who are just starting their collections and homes in which to display their art.”
Having taken place this past week, thousands of master works were showcased at Art Miami, including those by Frank Stella, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Academy Award winner Adrien Brody exhibited his latest works, following a string of exhibitions earlier this year at Art New York and Art Southampton. CONTEXT Art Miami — which has showcased a dedicated selection of emerging, mid-career and established artists since its inception in 2012 — presented 100 international galleries for its 2016 edition.
Together with nine global Affiliates, Christie’s International Real Estate hosted an elegant booth at the main entrance of Art Miami, featuring luxury residential property offerings from around the world.
“Our exclusive affiliation with Christie’s International Real Estate provides access to these unique initiatives to bring our properties directly to buyers most qualified to purchase,” says Rick Hilton, Chairman of Hilton & Hyland. “This level of strategic and targeted marketing is what sets our network apart.”
Jeff Hyland, President of Hilton & Hyland added: “this conference is one of the most world-renowned art fairs, and we’re incredibly proud to be a premier sponsor of the event.”
Annually, Art Miami attracts more than 85,000 new and established collectors, curators, museum professionals, members of the media, and art world luminaries. The fair boasts a 200,000-square-foot, gallery-like pavilion in the Wynwood Arts District showcasing paintings, photography, prints, drawings, design, sculpture and video art, with works from the 20th and 21st centuries. This year, more than 130 galleries from as many as 20 countries were on display.
