Red Dot Art Fair: One of Miami’s Leading Art Fairs
By Alyse Mier
Red Dot Art Fair, one of Art Basel and Miami Art Week’s leading shows, returned to Miami this past weekend for its 9th edition. Its new location in the Arts and Entertainment District served as the temporary home for modern and contemporary works of art.
This event has served as a platform to introduce enthusiasts and collectors to established, mid-career and emerging artists, much like Benjamin Edelstein.
Edelstein, a Miami native, specializes in both fine art and commercial photography. His work has been published in several advertising campaigns, and graced the pages of leading magazines such as Vogue. Red Dot gave Edelstein the opportunity to present his work side-by-side to exquisite and sometimes bizarre works of art.
“I’ve seen some pretty cool contemporary work around here. I’m a fan of mixed media. Anything that has to do with more than just photography or painting, or finding ways to incorporate both I’m usually a pretty big fan of,” said Edelstein.
Red Dot’s vast collection of modern and contemporary art did not disappoint as fairgoers made their way through the over 70 galleries that exhibited numerous sculptures, paintings and photographs.
“This is my second year here at Red Dot and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind. Long days, long hours, but what I appreciate most about being here is that I not only get to see a lot of the galleries that are present, but I get to meet a lot of the artists that aren’t from around here,” said Edelstein.
