Another Fairy Tale...*
At the crack of dawn in December 2006 it was
rumored that a big group is
going to install another satellite art fair into the
already branded art landscape of Miami: Art Basel - Miami Beach - NADA- PULSE - Aqua Art - photo etc. It is announced as ULTRA - The Ultimate Art Affair. After very successful premieres in Miami, Dubai and Basel
unfortunately ULTRA Shanghai in September, 2008 was censored and canceled. The last spin-off was held at ULTRA Lagos in 2010. The location for the next spin-off will be announced during the GALLERY WEAKEND BERLIN 29 April 2011 to 1 May 2011.
Each ULTRA ART AFFAIR will provide three sections: ultra-hip, ultra

The Ultimate is a general term embracing the concept of an ultimate
supernatural reality which transcends material reality and from which, according
to a broad spectrum of Eastern philosophies and religions, material reality
derives. The Ultimate is generally non-anthropomorphic and may or may not (depending
on ones specific doctrine) possess discrete will, intelligence, awareness or
a personal nature.
On the other hand Ultimate (often called ultimate Frisbee) is
a competitive non-contact team sport played
with a flying disc. The object of the game is to score points by passing the
disc into the opposing endzone, similar to American football. Players may not
run while holding the disc. Ultimate is distinguished by its Spirit of the
Game: the principles of fair play, sportsmanship, and the joy of play.
Following both philiosophical and sportive ideas ULTRA
is going to be more than a Fair:
Your Ultimate Art Affair!
