Littlest Sister, a “faux” invitational art fair, comments on the art fair as an entity that activated Miami’s contemporary arts scene. Inaugurating Spinello Projects’ new space and its 10th Year Anniversary, Littlest Sister will feature an emerging Miami based curator, Sofia Bastidas (Littlest Sister Director) and ten unrepresented women-identified Miami based artists who work in painting, sculpture, design, installation, and new media.
The fair consists of 10 solo booths and Projects, a sector focusing on video, sound, performance, and happenings. Running concurrently, Platform, a symposium bringing together Miami’s most influential women in the arts, will invite panelists to engage in conversations and debate regarding current macro and local issues, from challenges in the field, the future of art fairs, real estate development and the arts, to gender and race inequality in the market. Programmed throughout Miami Art Week, Platform will create informal opportunities of exchange for real critical discourse.
Participating artists include Cara Despain, AdrienneRose Gionta, Jessie Laino, Tara Long, Ana Mendez, Nun (Jessica Martin and Deon Rubi), Jamilah Sabur, Reed van Brunschot, Juana Valdes, and Clara Varas.

Spinello Projects is a Miami-based contemporary art program founded in 2005. The gallery supports and promotes the work of artists with unorthodox and experimental practices.
