23rd Art Miami & Inaugural Context Art Miami
 

 

Anchor art fair to the city of Miami, Art Miami www.art-miami.com the premiere international modern and contemporary art fair, and its sister fair the inaugural CONTEXT Art Miami, Miami’s newest international emerging and cutting-edge art fair, have entered into a philanthropic partnership with The Buoniconti Fund, the fundraising arm of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. At the CONTEXT Art Miami Pavilion, there will be a VIP Reception on December 6 from 5 pm to 7 pm . CONTEXT ART Miami & Art Miami are located in the Wynwood Arts District, 3101 NE 1st Avenue, Miami, FL 33137.

In addition to providing The Buoniconti Fund a highly visible booth at the inaugural CONTEXT Art Miami allowing them to bring their message to a powerful international community that can help in the development of further awareness and fundraising, Art Miami & CONTEXT Art Miami and The Buoniconti Fund will present internationally acclaimed Chinese artist Ma Desheng at the VIP Reception. Already afflicted by polio, Ma tragically lost his wife and both his legs in a car accident in Miami in 1992. After a long and arduous process of rehabilitation, he began painting again, depicting stones in his paintings as part of his recovery and renewed artistic awakening. Art Miami LLC partners will make a generous donation to the Fund in Ma Desheng’s name.  A generous portion of the proceeds from the sale of Desheng's artwork will be donated to the fund.

Born in Beijing in 1952, Ma worked as a draughtsman during the Cultural Revolution. He was a leading proponent of the Stars (Xingxing) group of artists who first exhibited in Beijing in 1979, the year China started its open-door policy. This art group pioneered individualistic and expressionist art forms leading to China's modernist art movement. 

As the leader of The Stars, Ma organized two exhibitions that broke the stranglehold of Communist Party orthodoxy and set the stage for future freedom of artistic expression in China.   

The Buoniconti Fund was begun in 1985 by Barth A. Green, M.D. and NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Nick Buoniconti to support The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis after Nick’s son, Marc, sustained a spinal cord injury during a college football game.

Today, The Miami Project is the world’s most comprehensive spinal cord injury research center and a designated Center of Excellence at the University of Miami Miller School Of Medicine. The organization was recently green lighted by the FDA to conduct important human clinical trials, a revolutionary Phase 1 clinical trial to evaluate the safety of transplanting human Schwann cells to treat patients with recent spinal cord injuries.
