Inside Pulse Miami 2014

Pulse Miami, the sister fair of Pulse New York, celebrated this year its 10th anniversary at its new location at Indian Beach Park, Collins Avenue, with 70 international galleries presenting the best of contemporary art. The fair was divided in various sections, among them Impulse (a platform for emerging galleries) and Points (dedicated to alternative models and non-profit spaces), which this year were both integrated with the main section, followed by Projects (featuring large-scale installations, sculptures, and performances).

Visitors had the chance to discover works from more than 160 artists from all over the world and enjoy the fair’s daily round table discussions (Pulse Perspectives) that included themes like “Women in Art”, “Art and Environment” and “Digital Art in a Changing World”. Another highlight was Pulse Play, a section that explores the relationship between new media and art, which was curated this by Lindsay Howard and tumblr, featuring six videos that “showed different approaches for living in a world of noise, variously resisting, transforming, and surrendering to the overwhelming input of contemporary culture”.

Helen Toomer, the fair’s new director, wanted to give new breath to the fair and opted for a “less is more approach”, carefully curating the participants and creating “an oasis of calm in the middle of Miami madness”. More than half of the booths were focused on three artists or less, giving visitors the chance to obtain a better idea of the artists’ direction. “I think we are getting back to our roots–the art and the artists. And although the tent and the food and the parties are all important–they are not the main focus for me… I want PULSE to be a place where they can stop, look, listen and develop relationships with our galleries and artists,” Toomer told New York Observer.

“Although we are a commercial entity, we don’t want to focus solely on that, when so many opportunities arise from the fairs in the form of future collaborations and curation,” she continued, setting the tone of the fair that impressed collectors and art aficionados with its strong and coherent proposal. We leave you with a selection of our favorite artworks, and, who knows, maybe next year we’ll see you in Miami!
