Psst…to all the lovely art-loving people in the world, EK has a little secret to tell you…
WE ARE GOING TO ART BASEL!!!!
EMPTY KINGDOM is absolutely ecstatic to announce our partnership with SELECT FAIR for collaborative exhibition madness at the internationally infamous ART BASEL in beautiful Miami, Florida from DECEMBER 4-8. What the hell does that mean for all of you? It means there’s only one place for you to be in December this year, and it’s South Beach!
Amanda Elizabeth Joseph (April 2012, July 2011), Andreas Englund (December 2012, March 2012, August 2011), Erin M. Riley (December 2012, December 2011), Scott Hove (May 2013, March 2011, April 2010), and Shawn Barber (July 2013, July 2011) will be exhibiting their work for the show, so this IS the opportunity that you don’t want to miss! Did we mention that all artists have been on our TOP 100 list at one point or another? BOOYAH!
We fully intend to work towards upholding our 90/10 commitment, but in the meantime we’re giving what we can. 10% of the sale price will go to a charity of the artist’s choice, so come out and support the arts for a good cause!
We have decided to partner with SELECT because they are a quality group of visionaries with many similar values, not just in Art, but in philosophy with EK. Stay tuned because we’ll be soon begin announcing a lot of cool developments that you’ll want to be a part of, the super-amazeballs artists we’ll be featuring, the parties we’ll be throwing, and diners we’ll be addressing our unreal hangovers at. It’s going to be a damn good time, and we don’t want you to miss it.
