Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Long before Art Basel rolled into town, Art Miami was the main art fair in town, and it has continued to thrive despite, or because of, the competition. The next edition -- held during Basel week, December 2-6 -- will be the fair's 20th overall and the first under a new consortium of owners. 

The newly formed Art Miami LLC has officially taken control of the fair from Summit Business Media. The LLC is a partnership consisting of Mike Tansey, Brian Tyler, and seasoned art fair director Nick Korniloff. Tansey and Tyler are described as media vets, and Tansey seems to be a collector. Meanwhile, Nick Korniloff was named director of that fair last year, and now takes an ownership stake. 

The group has also reached an agreement with Midtown Miami to keep the fair for the next three seasons in the same location as last year.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
