Founded in 2005, PULSE Contemporary Art Fair is an established part of the annual art calendar and is recognized for providing its international community of emerging and established galleries with a dynamic platform for connecting with a global audience. PULSE offers visitors an engaging environment in which to discover and collect the most compelling contemporary art being produced today.
In 2016, after twelve years of providing a platform for the international art community in New York, PULSE Contemporary Art Fair decided to focus solely on the evolution of the Miami Beach edition. PULSE360 was launched in 2017, furthering PULSE's mission by bringing together an inclusive community for year-round experiences centered around art and culture.
PULSE Miami Beach returns to Indian Beach Park from Thursday, December 7 to Sunday, December 10, 2017. Exhibitor applications are now open - apply here. For daily updates from PULSE, follow us at @PULSEArtFair.
