ArtPalmBeach is Returning for Its 22nd
POSTED ON January 9, 2019 - 5000 North Ocean
Palm Beach County is known to be one of the largest destinations and areas for art. When you have venues such as the Norton Museum of Art and the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, it’s easy to draw in creators and art enthusiasts of all kinds. It’s the county’s penchant for the arts that has led to it hosting ArtPalmBeach for its 22nd year, running from January 16 – 20, 2019 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. This isn’t your average art fair – part festival, part gallery, this exhibition is drawing together some of the biggest names, pieces, and programs in art.
The festival has been known to summon together some of the art world’s most substantial members, and this year is no exception. Serving as this year’s guest curator is Erich Weiss. Weiss brings his experience in curating contemporary and modern works to his role as guest curator. While he’s had an extensive history in producing provocative pieces, he is especially noted for his ability to gather the works of Duchamp, Magritte, Hirst, and others for dramatic exhibitions. This is established at museums that he’s serving as curator at large, ranging from Barcelona’s Picasso Museum to the Sonneveld House.
Weiss’s penchant for abstract and conceptual works have made ArtPalmBeach’s exhibitions come off as ethereal, featuring depictions of mood and metaphor involving pictures and programs. One such example would be the works of exhibiting artists Alessandra Maria, who utilizes soft pencils and gold leaf to make her pieces come off like the fragments of some dream. The same could be said for Alejandra Aristizabal, who utilizes string from the Fique plant, one of the national fibers of her home country of Colombia to show connections to the past and future, asks us what it means to face the future, and makes us consider our connections to our planet.
ArtPalmBeach has been known to host cutting edge art pieces and programs demonstrating the future of creation and concept. This year’s centerpiece pavilion is FLOW, a showcase of both historically significant video art and modern-day animation art. Curated by Weiss, he will be introducing audiences to the likes of Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung and Nathalie Djurenburg while displaying their works alongside video artworks from the 80’s to the early aughts. Through the videos, we can find stylistic choices of the era and discussions regarding social and political topics of the time, establishing these works as moving time capsules for us to compare and contrast our own works and life against.
ArtPalmBeach is one of the area’s most prominent art events. It stands to reason that many auteurs would want to remain as close to it as possible, as to not miss out on a single moment. Enter Singer Island, which gives art critics the proximity that they crave and the lifestyle that they want.
The Palm Beach oceanfront lifestyle is cherished by many, yet few experience the privilege of living directly on the sands of the Palm Beach shoreline. Kolter Urban’s new oceanfront tower, 5000 North Ocean is a 19-story contemporary designed building that will be home to just 48 exclusive residences. 5000 North Ocean has been thoughtfully planned to take full advantage of the 4.5-acre development site and its 341 feet of direct Palm Beach oceanfront.
Residents will enjoy a plethora of resort-style on-site amenities including a one-of-a-kind private beach oasis, an oceanfront pool, state-of-the art fitness center and a resident club room. Floorplans range from 3,211 sq. ft. to 6,314 sq. ft. and offer 2 – 4 bedrooms/3 – 4.5 bathroom plans.
With delivery planned for the Fall of 2019, construction is underway yet homebuyers can tour the on-site Sales Gallery, which is open daily. An architectural scale model and full-size designer kitchen are available to provide a glimpse into the exciting future of Singer Island.
