​Now in its 28th year, Art Miami is one of the most important modern and contemporary art fairs in the world. TAI Modern will be exhibiting recent works by contemporary Japanese bamboo masters, as well as contemporary American artists of various media.

The gallery will present works which reflect the continued development of the Japanese bamboo arts. Representing over 35 artists in this medium, TAI Modern has been the premier gallery for contemporary Japanese bamboo art for over 20 years. Noteworthy bamboo artists include Honda Syoryu, Fujitsuka Shosei, and Nagakura Kenichi, who each exemplify varying traditional and regional aesthetics with their unique sculptural styles. These artists have pieces in several major American museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art which is featuring its first exhibit of Japanese bamboo art.

To compliment the selection of Japanese bamboo, TAI Modern will also feature works by contemporary American painters Erik Benson, Siobhan McBride and Monique van Genderen. Benson’s work is highly detailed with an urban edge, creating cityscapes and still lifes with his signature technique of cutting shapes from acrylic paint and applying them to canvas. McBride’s small-scale gouache paintings conjure enigmatic worlds in a moody palette. In contrast, van Genderen’s abstract work focuses more on the versatility of her color and her use of direct brushstrokes, which result in highly lyrical compositions.
