What is Art Basel Miami Beach?

One of the most highly acclaimed international art fairs in the world, Art Basel Miami Beach is the American sister of the "most important annual art show worldwide", Art Basel. Located in Basel, Switzerland, Art Basel has been in production for the past 37 years and is considered the highest quality modern and contemporary art fair in the world.

Art Basel Miami Beach was launched in 2002 and immediately the fair drew thousands of prominent collectors and art enthusiasts from all over the world. By last year, over 35,000 visitors attended Art Basel Miami Beach making this the most important contemporary art fair in the Americas. The fair showcases 200 of the most outstanding art galleries from North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe. The participating galleries were hand picked from over 700 applicants ensuring only the highest quality galleries partake. The galleries sell work by some of the most significant artists in the world, everything from Picasso to the most sought after emerging artists.

Over the last five years, Art Basel Miami Beach has developed into an extensive international cultural event combining the main art fair in the Convention Center with additional galleries in shipping containers on the beach, sculptural exhibitions in public places throughout the city, and dozens of related events that include performance, music, architecture, design and film.

This world-class event has become so successful that non-associated art fairs and events have chosen to showcase in Miami Beach and Miami during the same time, each hoping to capture the attention of Art Basel Miami Beach VIPs and its thousands of guests. Last year, there were over nine auxiliary art fairs, one design fair and dozens of temporary exhibitions vying for a part of Art Basel Miami Beach's spotlight. Each year there are more and more events surrounding Art Basel Miami Beach making the Art Access Guide a necessary tool for navigating the week’s plethora of events.

To encompass everything going on, we call this week in Miami, Art Basel Week.
