6-9 December 2018
Since first launching in 2002 (long after the original fair was christened in Switzerland in 1970), Art Basel Miami Beach has created such an art-drenched ecosystem full of diversity, that there’s something for just about everyone at this four-day artistic spectacle which completely takes over the famous beachfront Florida city. While the fair’s epicentre is the Miami Beach Convention Centre, there are literally dozens of offshoots, offbeat and off-centre exhibitions, films, performances and shows throughout the city. For 2018, more than 200 of the world’s leading international modern and contemporary art galleries display artworks by over 4,000 artists, including paintings, sculptures, installations and photographs, not to mention museum-calibre masterpieces of the highest quality. Meanwhile, editioned pieces by the new generation of emerging young artists will also be showcased, many of which are infinitely more affordable than the works on sale by big named artists.
