About PULSE Contemporary Art Fair:
PULSE Contemporary Art Fair is the leading US art fair dedicated solely to contemporary art. Held annually in New York and Miami, PULSE bridges the gap between main and alternative fairs and provides participating galleries with a platform to present new works to a strong and growing audience of collectors, art professionals and art lovers.

The fair is divided into two sections and is comprised of a mix of established and emerging galleries vetted by a committee of prominent international dealers. The IMPULSE section showcases galleries presenting solo exhibitions of emerging artist’s work created in the past two years.

In addition, PULSE develops original cultural programming with a series of large-scale installations, and its PULSE PLAY> video lounge. The PULSE Prize and People’s Choice Award are awarded in New York and in Miami to artists presented in the IMPULSE section.
