Art Miami was showing contemporary art in fair format long before Art Basel rolled into town, and now they're expanding with a second yearly fair focusing on fine art and antiques, according to ArtInfo


The Florida International Fine Art Fair will kick off next year in the same tent space in Midtown that Art Miami has called home for the past two years. 

Show director Nick Korniloff hopes that FIFAF (

catchy

) will compete with other big fine art fairs like The European Fine Art Fair, which is held annually in Maastricht, Netherlands.


Unlike Basel and its contemporary art fair compatriots that have a heavy focus on recent work, FIFAF will specialize in older works and antiques stretching back as far as classical antiquity. Meaning the after-parties might not be as fun, but the potential piggy banks it could be bringing into town could eventually be bigger. 

The fair's opening-night vernissage is scheduled for exactly one year from today, while the main fair will run from February 2 to 7, 2011.
