When you’re in South Beach, you not only have the opportunity to soak up some sun and enjoy wonderful food, you get to experience the area’s rich culture through the art world. Each year, Miami Beach is home to Art Basel, which stages international art shows that provides platforms for galleries and artists from all around the world to exhibit and get their work out to the public. This fair is staged annual in Basel, Hong Kong, and Miami Beach. This year, Art Basel will be held December 1 to 4 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Collins Park and Soundscape Park.
In this show, 269 galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa will showcase work from masters of modern and contemporary art, along with new and young artists to the scenes. There will be paintings, sculptures, photography, films, installations, and other types of work on display in the main exhibition hall in the convention center.
Tickets range from $50 to $105 depending on the type of ticket purchased. Throughout the week, there are guided tours, openings, receptions, performances, talks, films, breakfasts, and shows for people to attend.
Art Basel is organized by sectors which each showcase different types of work and artists for visitors. The Nova sector, for example, is designed for galleries to present one to three artists showing work that has been created within the last three years, featuring juxtapositions and fresh work. The Survey sector features precise art historical projects. For the Public sector, 20 large-scale pieces will be installed in the parks for people to view and enjoy. Other sectors include: film, magazines, kabinett, edition, and positions.
