“Stick Together Gallery sold out their entire collection of Max Zorn’s works on the opening day and were able to sell the entire booth 3x over by the end of the show.”
Many people don’t know this but the first Miami Basel show Max Zorn ever had in Miami was at Wood Tavern — right off 2nd in Wynwood. It’s a place always packed outside, but we hung his work inside on the walls of this tiny room that acts more as a hallway than a hangout. With no expectations we showed whatever we had, and sure enough I was getting phone calls at one in the morning from collectors drawn to the light and ready to buy. After that weekend we knew Miami was a market for Max Zorn, and it’s only grown from there.
That was 2013, and some of my favorite collectors who still come through our booth are the OGs who supported Max as an emerging artist, before the auctions, before the media attention and before the sold out booths. (Hi Kelly!)
“OUTSTANDING ATTENDANCE, SOLD OUT BOOTHS AND SALES FUELED BY NEW CONTEMPORARY GALLERIES, PROJECTS, AND VIP PROGRAMMING”
As someone who sells art diffusing the lines of urban and contemporary while keeping a clever edge, SCOPE felt like a good fit. The week was busy, and after the first VIP night we sold nearly the entire booth. This would be our 5th year exhibiting at a fair in Miami during Basel, and the 5th year Max sold out the entire booth.
For me personally, it market the 20th art fair I’ve exhibited at since 2012. And while my job has brought me across the world to art fairs form Hong Kong to London, nothing can compare to the buzz and chaotic beauty of Art Basel Miami week.
Thanks to all the collectors, friends and artists who came through and showed their support. See you in December!
