About The Show

As soon as the second Art Basel venue debuted in Miami Beach, it became one of the most sought-after winter events of both artists and buyers. The more than 70,000 visitors to the show have seen innovative contemporary and modern pieces of artwork like shipping containers converted to galleries for young artists’ works.

One of the best ways to see the works of some 300 participating galleries – is to tour it with an art expert who will introduce you to the works and answer your questions.

Since Art Basel draws more serious – and monied – international clients and collectors than any other art fair, artists and dealers put a lot of work into making sure it is the best art fair in the world. 

Works come from artists all over the world – North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. There are paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, and films. The beautiful Miami Beach weather allows the outdoor display of large-scale artworks, films, and performances at nearby parks.

Every night, art films are shown on a 7,000-square-foot outdoor screen on the side of the New World Center.

The art fair continues to break sales records. In 2015, Jean-Michel Basquiat’s painting, “Real,” sold for $5.6 million. Basquiat, a New York City poet, musician, and graffiti prodigy in the late-1970s who collaborated with Andy Warhol, suffered a tragic end, dying of a heroin overdose in 1988 when he was 27.

Half the galleries at Art Basel Miami Beach are from the United States or Latin America. And, with the recent re-establishment of diplomatic ties between the United States and Cuba, Cuba looks to be an important element of the art fair.

Check Out Miami

If you want a break from the art world, there is a lot to see and do in the city located on the southeastern tip of Florida that has long been a popular tourist destination. The warm weather, the beautiful beaches, the trendy nightspots and the charming Cuban influence draw crowds to the shopping and golfing haven. While you’re there, consider visiting Little Havana, Miami Beach and:

  • Bayside Market Place: A festive shopping area along the banks of Biscayne Bay.
  • Vizcaya Mansion: The official unofficial diplomatic seat of Miami-Dade County has been the location of the signing of the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas and has welcomed U.S. presidents and European royalty. The museum includes the main house with 2,500 art objects, an orchid collection of more than 2,000 specimens and formal gardens.
  • Coconut Grove: Miami’s first neighborhood (founded in 1873) is now considered an escape from hectic city life. Located in the heart of downtown, its Bohemian boutiques and sidewalk cafes give it a laid-back atmosphere.
  • South Beach: You can check out hot bods on its two-mile stretch of white sand beaches or the historic art deco architecture of its buildings. Either way, no trip to Miami is complete without a visit to South Beach. And, if you’re hungry after all your people-watching, there are tons of trendy restaurants to visit.
