Art Basel Miami Beach
Free Public Art


The costs of visiting Miami and Miami Beach for Art Week add up quickly. However, there are many free art events worth enjoying. Here's a breakdown some of the free public events hosted by Art Basel Miami Beach this year.

Public Sector:
Philipp Kaiser curates the sector for the first time.

Kaiser, an independent curator and critic, will curate the Public sector at Art Basel in Miami Beach. Framed around the theme ‘Territorial’, the sector will transform Collins Park into an outdoor exhibition space, featuring 11 site-responsive works by established and emerging artists: Frida Baranek, Yto Barrada, Daniel Buren, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Philippe Decrauzat, Noël Dolla, Cyprien Gaillard, Daniel Knorr, Harold Mendez, Manuela Viera-Gallo and Brenna Youngblood. In addition, Jim Shaw and his D’red D’warf band will present the premiere of ‘The Rinse Cycle', a progressive rock opera ten years in the making.

Commenting on the theme of this year’s sector – ‘Territorial’ – Philipp Kaiser notes, 'Since time immemorial, sculpture has been territorial, commanding and authoritarian. Even when sculpture is presented with utmost restraint and elegance, it asserts its own physical space that we inevitably must share with it.' The works selected for Public address this aspect of sculpture as the pieces claim space or territory through size, scale, intensity and sound, among other artistic practices. The theme is also a reference to a specific historical discourse from the 1960s in which artists of different nationalities became interested in new sites for their sculptures that existed outside of traditional art institutions.


Frida Baranek


As part of Public, Jim Shaw (b.1952) will premier his much anticipated progressive rock opera ‘The Rinse Cycle'. Shaw, who recently had solo shows at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, The New Museum in New York and the Marciano Foundation in Los Angeles, has worked on the opera for ten years and with his band D’red D’warf will perform the first two parts of the opera that combine written music with improvisation, prehistoric chanting and spoken word, accompanied by visuals made by Shaw specifically for the performance. Taking place at SoundScape Park on Wednesday evening, December 6, 8pm to 9pm, the opera is free of charge and open to the public.

Jim Shaw and D’red D’warf, The Rinse Cycle: Parts One & Two, Presented with the support of Blum & Poe, Metro Pictures, and Simon Lee Gallery.

Film and Sound Works

From December 7 to December 9, 2017, Art Basel will present a premier program of film and video works that focus on the universal language of dance and movement. Selected from the show's participating galleries by David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions and Artprojx, this year’s program will present films by artists Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Jen DeNike and Tin Ojeda, as well as a series of short films drawn from the Chicago Film Archives collection. In addition, Marian Masone, New York-based film curator, has selected ‘Boom For Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat’ (2017), directed by Sara Driver, for a special screening. Art Basel, whose Lead Partner is UBS, takes place from December 7 to December 10, 2017 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

For this year's screenings in SoundScape Park on the 7,000 square-foot outdoor projection wall of the New World Center, David Gryn has selected films that engage with the diverse and global language of dance, as well as the connection between movement and music. While in the past the Film program has featured works that touch on multiple topics, the concept for the 2017 edition will present a more focused line-up of films centered around a theme.

Nightly: 8pm | December 7 to December 9, 2017
Art Basel's Film sector screenings will take place in SoundScape Park on the 7,000- square-foot outdoor projection wall of the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center, a three-minute walk from the Miami Beach Convention Center. Admission to Film is free. Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs.

Nightly: 7pm | Sound works in SoundScape Park Hans Berg, Trance, 17’ (one hour loop), 2017, Gió Marconi, Lisson Gallery

Friday, December 8, 2017 8:30pm
Colony Theatre Special Film Screening Sara Driver, Boom For Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat, 79’, 2017 The feature film selected by Art Basel film curator Marian Masone will be shown at the Colony Theatre, 1040 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach.
