Miami’s hotly anticipated cultural event, Art Basel Miami Beach will take place from 2nd to 5th December this year. The most celebrated art show in the U.S, features a selection of work from over 250 leading galleries from five continents, exhibiting 20th and 21st century work by over 2000 artists. Spanning across different fields, it incorporates film, music, architecture and design, as well as hosting a number of special exhibitions: new galleries, public art projects, performance and video art, plus parties that last until the early hours.
The Art Basel Miami Beach started as sister event to Switzerland’s Art Basel, the most prestigious art show for the last four decades. Since its premiere in 2002, it has somewhat overshadowed its big sister in both popularity and scale. The Art Basel Miami Beach is a social and cultural highlight that the world’s most important artists, curators, dealers, critics and art enthusiasts wouldn’t miss. So why should you?
Located in Miami’s Art Deco district, alongside the world’s largest collection of Art Deco architecture, it is within walking distance of many luxury hotels in Miami.
