A chat with Nick Korniloff, Partner & Director of Art Miami

The savvy businessman & local celebrity chats with us about art, advice and ambiance.

Art Week, one of the most anticipated weeks of the year, is booming more than ever. And Art Miami, now in its 27th edition, will attract more than 82,000 collectors, curators, museum professionals and art enthusiasts from around the globe.

Nick Korniloff, the man behind all this art frenzy, has been with Art Miami for ten years and shares with U some of his expert insight on all things art and more.

What makes Art Miami the second most attended art fair in the world?

I think it’s the accessibility and the quality of work. The most seasoned collectors know they can come here to enhance their collections or it’s a perfect place for individuals to start their collections.

What new things can we expect this year?

I am extremely impressed by the exceptional quality we have this year. Our teams of gallerists were really focused on bringing new material and hand picking the best. They really respect the Miami market and save the very best for this show.

Anything advice for our members?

Don’t rush through the shows. Each show takes about a day to really appreciate so take the day and enjoy the high quality of work. It’s a process, but develop your eye for great work. The show really offers you that. It’s not overly pretentious, and it doesn’t create the fear of asking questions. So ask them!

What’s your favorite part of Art Week in Miami?

The energy and creativity of the artists. I also love the energy of the audience who is attending and really appreciating everything.

What are your favorite Miami restaurants?

DB Bistro Moderne at the JW Marriott, Zuma Miami and for a relaxed ambiance and a good cold beer – Wynwood Kitchen & Bar… or its neighbor Joey’s Italian Café.
