Show manager of the first Art Basel Miami Beach in 2002, and later co-director with Marc Spiegler of all three Art Basel fairs worldwide, Schönholzer was one of three executives named to replace the founding director of Art Basel Miami Beach, Sam Keller, in 2007. Now only Spiegler remains of the trio. Gallerist says Marco Fazzone, Director of resources and finance and the Director of Asia, will be added to the roster.
Schönholzer's exit comes less than a month after Magnus Renfrew stepped down as director of Asia's operations. According to artnet News, Art Basel says the departures are unrelated.
