It’s that time of year! Art Basel has returned to Miami Beach for its annual winter event. Featuring over 250 leading galleries and maintaining its prominence as a major outlet for contemporary artists, Art Basel Miami Beach is sure to make a splash, presenting countless “paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, films, and editioned works of the highest quality.”
Projected to attract 75,000 international attendees, this year’s show boasts several highly anticipated artists, spanning myriad modern art masters – like Marina Abramović, Julian Schnabel, Fred Wilson, Banksy, Christopher Wool, Kara Walker, and Cindy Sherman – on top of countless new and exciting up-and-comers. A few that we’re especially excited about? Klara Kristalova (Lehmann Maupin), Vik Muniz(Sikkema Jenkins & Co.) and Mark Neville (Alan Cristea Gallery) – three artists that ROOMS has featured in the past!
In addition to the grand affair itself, several satellite fairs will be popping up around the beach, including SCOPE Art Fair, an exciting event for which we have already named five not-to-be-missed emerging artists! Additional prominent and celebrated fairs include PULSE Miami, SELECT, and NADA.
Excited about the festivities but can’t make it to Miami? No problem! Follow ROOMS on Instagram for daily snaps of main attractions, public installations, and encounters with artists live from the beach!
