How To Basel
Art Basel returns December 4-7 at the Miami Beach Convention Center for its 13th edition, with 267 international galleries from 31 countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. “Since it was founded, the Miami Beach show has ranked as the most important art fair in the Americas,” said Marc Spiegler, Director of Art Basel.
New art basel sector for 2014
2014 marks the debut of Survey, a new sector dedicated to precise art-historical projects. From Modern masters to the latest contemporary pieces across five gallery sectors, galleries will also present works in project-based sectors: Kabinett, Public and Film. “Art Basel has transformed Miami into an impressive, warm, vibrant Center for contemporary art,” said David Gryn, Proprietor of ArtProjx in London and Curator of the Art Basel Video Program. “Thanks to Art Basel, Miami has truly established itself as a paramount and vital part of this equation.”
