Imagine loading a cannon with pastel paints and firing it all over South Beach.And those hit by the Pollock style bomb range from ascot wearing European wealth from Monaco to graffiti artists in street wear from Bushwick who clawed together change to get here. And then dress it up.
That’s Art Basel.
The biggest art show in the world will be repurposing the metro of Miami as a living canvas in ways, drawing over 80,000 in just a few days to countless galleries, exhibits, installations and events that range from the Victorian to the surreal. It’s both Vatican and Valerian. It’s hip and temporary and established and stuffy. There’s a sea of indie as fuck drug addled street culture and also a brunch hosted by JP Morgan.
Leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa show significant work from the masters of Modern and contemporary art, as well the new generation of emerging stars. Paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, films, and editioned works of the highest quality are on display in the main exhibition hall. Ambitious large‐scale artworks, films and performances become part of the city’s outdoor landscape at nearby Collins Park and SoundScape Park.
It’s December 7 to the 10th, and many of our set members are quite influential in this years expansive and ever creative itinerary.
