January 6, 2011, Miami, Florida - PULSE Miami closed the doors on its 2010 edition this week, where 82 international exhibitors showed contemporary art in Midtown Miami's Ice Palace. The first under new Director Cornell Dewitt was deemed a resounding success as exhibitors reported overwhelming sales unheard of since 2007. This edition re-emphasized the welcoming atmosphere that PULSE has long been known for, which drew more than 15,000 visitors.

"PULSE is not just about a place within the art market, it's about making an art fair better," explained Director Cornell DeWitt, who continued "collectors come for the art, and stay for the enjoyment factor.

Visitors to the fair were welcomed by an expansive plaza adorned with hammocks and trees conceived by SPACE Production + Design, though many opted to relax on artist Orly Genger's functional installation Beef Cakes. On view were regular performances of Wall by Brooklyn dance troupe Shannon Gillen & Guests. On Saturday, Michael Waugh's tour de force Decline and Fall (of a performance artist) saw the artist read passages from Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire emerging from the uninterrupted eight hours tanned but otherwise unharmed.
