Over the next few weeks you will hear us speak a lot about Art Basel. What is Art Basel? Only the most important art exhibition in the North America. Beginning in 1970 in Basel, Switzerland Art Basel has become the Olympics of the art world. In 2002 the committee decided to bring the show to Miami, Florida turning Miami into a cultural hot-spot each and every December. How grateful we are that a show of this caliber is in the backyard of A&H magazine’s home base.
Art Basel takes place in the Miami Beach Convention Center and will be home of 260 of the world’s top galleries from December 6-9th. Special exhibition sections of up-and-coming spaces, performance art, public art projects, and video art all take place inside Art Basel. We could ramble on and on about the show but to put it into a few words “Art Basel is epic”.
When Art Basel is in town the city of Miami is non stop, from surronding galleries to the streets of Wynwood, the the city does not sleep for those 4 days. This year the A&H team will be putting together something special for Art Basel (announcement to come) for now just stay tuned to our instagram.
**Miami New Times has a great writeup on all the Art Basel activities**
