Art Basel Miami Beach
What's the Big Deal?

Art Basel Miami Beach is just a ten days away. So what's the big deal? Simply put, Art Basel Miami Beach is the biggest and most important contemporary art fair in the United States. If you can make it to Miami you'll be overwhelmed with the amount of visual art that's available for viewing. Besides Art Basel, there will be eighteen other art fairs in Miami and Miami Beach. Bring your walking shoes, sun glasses and warm weather clothes and plan on having a great time.

Art Galleries
At Art Basel Miami Beach, more than 250 of the world's leading art galleries for modern and contemporary art from North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia will display 20th and 21st century artworks. The show features painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, print, photography, film, performance, video and digital art by more than 2,000 artists. Visitors can find works ranging from editioned pieces by young artists to multi-million-dollar museum-calibre masterpieces. Miami Beach Convention Center.

Art Nova
This section is designed for galleries representing two to three of their artists with new works, meaning that they have been created during the last two years - and are often even fresh from the studio. Miami Beach Convention Center.

Art Positions
The Art Positions sector is a platform for a single major project from one of their artists, allowing curators, critics and collector to discover ambitious new talents from all over the globe. Miami Beach Convention Center.

Art Kabinett
In Art Kabinett, galleries selected for the Art Galleries sector will present 30 curated exhibitions in a separately delineated space within their booth. The curatorial concepts for Art Kabinett are diverse, including thematic group exhibitions, art-historical showcases and solo shows for rising stars.

Art Video
Art Video features film and video works by today's most exciting international artists presented by the galleries of Art Basel Miami Beach. Organized in association with London's Artprojx, Art Video will be screened for the first time in SoundScape Park on the 7,000-square-foot outdoor projection wall of the New World Center, as well as within five viewing pods inside the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Art Public
Art Public presents outdoor sculptures, interventions and performances within an open and public exhibition format. This year, Art Basel Miami Beach is collaborating with the Bass Museum of Art, situated in Collins Park where the artworks will be concentrated. Christine Y. Kim, Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and Co-Founder of the Los Angeles Nomadic Division (LAND), is the new curator of Art Public.
