Moksha Art Fair
The Moksha Art Fair (MAF) is a dynamic showcase featuring the luminaries of Visionary Art presented as a satellite event to Art Basel Miami Beach. By stimulating experimental and radical concepts through artistic expression, we reflect the blossoming of global consciousness while generating artistic recognition for Visionary Art. This genre is under recognized within mainstream outlets, although some artists’ work is now considered fine art by established critics.. MAF invites emerging and established artists and scholars within the disciplines of visual arts, music, video, performance, literature and research to participate and share their experiences within this expansive forum. MAF includes an exhibition, lectures, an artist panel discussion and multimedia performance. We select artists and performers who enhance each other and blend collaboratively via video mapping, live painting, dance, and a wide range of music. The vending area includes various crafts from featured local and international artists. Within a sea of artwork and exhibitions, MAC stands out with vibrant multiculturalism meshed with a mind-expanding edge and a distinctive production quality
The Moksha Experience provides Miami artists with a broader audience within festivals and events in South Florida and beyond. Captivating the senses, it encourages the expansion of consciousness and community interaction through the arts. Currently we are planning to participate in Love Burn, Virginia Key Grassroots Festival, and Okeechobee Music Festival, among other collaborations. With an expansive roster of artists representing the Visionary Genre, the Moksha Experience utilizes video mapping, fine art, live painting, dance, flow arts, conscious hip-hop, electronic experimentalism, jazz fusion, Afro-Caribbean rhythms, Miami Bass and contemporary mediums in a blended showcase of dynamic fusion. Off stage, we have a vending area that includes art prints, handmade jewelry, clothing, instruments, and various crafts made by local artists.MAC highlights Miami‘s vibrant multiculturalism while referencing and blending ancient traditions with cutting-edge technology.
MAC is ready to expand this immersive experience by utilizing cutting edge digital technology to shift the audience’s perspective. Further, MAC is poised to develop an augmented experience, incorporating virtual reality and a mobile app that adds content and depth to the presentation. The experience will incorporate VR headsets and goggles that use smartphones to allow for a greater number of audience members to participate. These features will also make our productions and gallery exhibitions accessible online.
