Firestone Sells at Miami Project

The interior of the Eric Firestone booth at Miami Project.

     Miami Project, the southern arm of artMRKT Productions, which has brought the artMRKT Hamptons fair to Bridgehampton in July for the past three years, is new in its second year in Miami’s midtown district and reported on Tuesday that it was doing well after its opening.

     Eric Firestone, whose eponymous gallery on Newtown Lane shows local and international artists, is the sole East End dealer with a booth at the fair and appeared to be doing well after the first night of sales.

     The fair said in a press release that the gallery sold two large photographs by Tseng Kwong Chi and a large painting by Bast, who had a solo exhibition at the East Hampton gallery this past summer.

   Other dealers at the fair reported selling works by Mel Bochner and Ai Wei Wei.

Mia Fonssagrives-Solow was well in evidence in the Firestone booth where her work was displayed on shelves.
