Considered to be the most prestigious art show in the Americas, Art Basel Miami Beach is celebrating its 10th edition this year. It takes place from December 1 through 4, 2011, at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami, Florida.
More than 260 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia, and Africa will take part, showcasing paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, photography, editions and videos by more than 2,000 artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Over the past decade, the show has helped to catalyze the evolution of the Latin American art scene, serving as an annual meeting point for its existing connoisseurs and its new collectors. The rapid surge in the numbers of collectors from the entire continent—and the steady pace at which they have broadened the scope of their collections—have made the show a nexus between the art scenes of Europe, North America and Latin America.
To mark its 10th edition, Art Basel Miami Beach will inaugurate a new collaboration with the Bass Museum of Art on the Art Public sector, which will transform Collins Park with unique artworks and performances by renowned artists and emerging talents. For the first time, Art Video will be presented in SoundScape Park on the large-scale outdoor projection wall of the New World Center, designed by Frank Gehry. The free public viewings will be part of a number of special events and performances taking place across Miami Beach for the duration of the show.
Top-quality exhibitions in the museums of South Florida and special programs for art collectors and curators also help make the event a special time for encountering art. And every year, a greater number of art collectors, artists, dealers, curators, critics and art enthusiasts from around the world participate in Art Basel Miami Beach—the favorite winter meeting place for the international art world.
