Founded in 1970 by gallerists from Basel, Art Basel today stages the world’s premier art shows for Modern and contemporary art, sited in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong. Defined by its host city and region, each show is unique, which reflected in its participating galleries, artworks presented, and the content of parallel programming produced in collaboration with local institutions for each edition.
Art Basel’s engagement has expanded beyond art fairs through many new initiatives such as Art Basel Cities, working with partner cities on bespoke cultural programs.
Occurring alongside the Art Basel fairs in Miami Beach and Basel, Design Miami has become the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing and creating the collectible design. In its 14th edition, Design Miami will take place from December 5-9 adjacent to the Miami Beach Convention Center (at Meridian Avenue and 19th Street).
Art Basel recently announced the list of 268 leading international galleries selected for its 2018 Miami Beach show. From 35 countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, the exhibitors will present Modern and contemporary works by emerging and established artists. Alongside a robust roster of returning galleries, this year’s show features 29 galleries who are participating for the first time. With more than half of its participants having exhibition spaces in the Americas, Art Basel in Miami Beach is the leading art show of the region.
Among others one of the most prominent Galleries from Sao Paolo, A Casa Triangulo will present some of its artists to Art Basel Miami Beach; Albano Afonso, Alex Cerveny, Ascânio MMM, Eduardo Berliner, Mariana Palma, Sandra Cinto e Vânia Mignone.
