|Basel, Miami Beach crown jewel in what Miami Beach has dubbed "Art Week," which is something of a rare understatement in an even full of hyperbole (it's closer to two weeks).|
|Other major world art centers sometimes have one-shot |
"pop-up" Basel shows.

Edition--Leading publishers of editioned works, prints and multiples exhibit the results of their collaboration with renowned artists, providing visitors with the opportunity to see significant and rare publications.
Kabinett--In a separately delineated space within their booths, galleries present a curated exhibition by an artist of their choice. The diverse curatorial concepts for Kabinett include thematic group exhibitions, art history showcases, and solo shows for rising stars.
Artists from all over the world took part in this
year's Art Basel program at the Wynwood Arts District.

Public--As part of Art Basel's show in Miami Beach, large-scale sculptures and installations by emerging international artists are installed in Collins Park. Public is curated by Philipp Kaiser, independent curator and critic. The sector is produced in collaboration with the Bass Museum of Art and supported by MGM Resorts Art & Culture.
|Art that moves, literally and figuratively.|
Film--Organized in association with David Gryn, Director of Data Editions and London's Artprojx, this sector presents a dynamic program of cinematic art. Outdoor screenings take place at SoundScape Park, where works are shown on the 7,000-square-foot projection wall of the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center. In addition, New York-based film curator Marian Masone selects a feature-length film for a special screening at the Colony Theatre.
Magazines--Art publications from around the world display their magazines in single-magazine stands or the collective booth. Editors and publishers often attend the show and many magazines contribute presentations to Conversations, our series of lectures and discussions by prominent members of the art world.

Miami has an unlimited amount of talent waiting to be discovered. There’s an element of vibrant energy that connects young artists, pulling them together to consider the area as a place to live. Art Basel, founded in Basel Switzerland in 1970, is well-known for its various art galleries which carry some of the most prestigious local and international art to be found. Art Basel’s directors selected Miami for their American debut as they acknowledged the potential the city has, whether they move to utilize facilities in Midtown Miami, Brickell, or Miami Beach.
