Hoyo, Matthieu Venot, Tiago Magro, and Ketnipz, who will join forces in converting over 3,000 square feet of the fair into a multi-faceted space exhibiting sensory art works and installations located in the fair’s pavilion.
"We’re thrilled to be bringing The Art Plug Power House experience to such an iconic show. I am overwhelmed by the success during Miami Art Week and look forward to seeing the show through the eyes of a new audience” – says Marcel Katz.
From C.B.

Ketnipz artist Harry Hambley will make his way across the pond from the U.K. to present the signature “Bean” in a sculptural dinner party.
On Sunday, January 20 – Marcel will lead a panel discussion at Art Palm Beach entitled “Mastering the Art of Instagram” about the effects social media has had on the art community.
