Art Salon
Taking place in the auditorium adjacent to Entrance D of the Miami Beach Convention Center every afternoon, Art Salon is a platform for discussion where artworld figures will present their projects, with an emphasis on the most current themes in contemporary art. Informal in format but international in scope, it also features artist talks, roundtable discussions and lectures. The detailed program will be announced in November and will be available at


Art Film
Art Film is again curated by Zurich film connoisseur This Brunner. This section will host the United States premiere of ‘Gerhard Richter Painting’ by Corinna Belz.
‘Gerhard Richter Painting’ presents an intriguing portrait of the artist Gerhard Richter at work. Shot primarily during the spring and summer of 2009, when Richter was working on a series of large abstract paintings in his studio, the documentary film gives compelling insights into Richter’s artistic working process and approach to painting. The film captures the artist as he goes through the very personal and tension-filled processes of artistic creation, contemplating, waiting, rejecting, reworking and occasionally destroying work only to begin anew. A trenchant portrait of an artist at work, ‘Gerhard Richter Painting’ is also a compelling film about the art of seeing.
‘Gerhard Richter Painting’, Germany, 2011 (97 minutes) will be shown at the Colony Theatre, 1040 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, at 8.30pm on December 2, 2011. The screening is followed by a Q&A with the director Corinna Belz, moderated by Louisa Buck, The Art Newspaper’s Contemporary Art Correspondent. Admission is free, but seats are limited.


Art Video
In Art Video, galleries will present a varied selection of video works. Organised in association with London’s Artprojx, screenings of Art Video will be presented for the first time in two different locations: on the outdoor New World Centre projection wall and within five viewing pods inside the Miami Beach Convention Centre.
