Living in exclusive Coconut Grove will give residents of the forthcoming luxury Vita at Grove Isle homes the best lifestyle Miami has to offer, including easy access to Art Basel, the city’s annual art fair. This year’s Art Basel, the 20th held in Miami Beach, will feature exhibitions by galleries from around the world in a colorful, joyful celebration of modern art. Keep reading to learn more about the history of this fair and the specifics of this year’s event.
Art Basel began in 1970, when Swiss gallerists Ernst Beyeler, Trudl Bruckner, and Balz Hilt first hosted the fair in the eponymous city in Switzerland. Since then, it has spread across the globe, with fairs hosted annually in Basel, Miami Beach, Hong Kong, and, for the first time this year, Paris. The show’s mission is to bring artwork from around the world to these host cities to promote appreciation and exploration while inspiring students and art collectors alike to expand their aesthetic horizons.
This year’s Miami Beach Art Basel, which will open on December 5th in the sprawling Miami Beach Convention Center a few miles northeast of Coconut Grove in Biscayne Bay, will be divided into a few sections with varying themes and missions. The bulk of the fair will consist of discrete gallery spaces, where exhibitors from around the world will display collections of modern and contemporary works by new artists and masters alike.
While the galleries are where most of the fair’s art will be displayed, this year’s newest section, Meridians, is sure to draw visitors' attention from the get-go. Meridians is home to large-scale works by 34 artists that range from live performances and video installations to immersive works that transport guests to faraway lands. Two other spaces, Nova and Positions, are dedicated to new works by up-and-coming artists just breaking into the art world, while Surveyand Kabinett function as discrete galleries for themed and art-historical exhibits. The fair will also feature panel discussions on a wide variety of topics regarding the art world, as well as a reading section packed with art publications from around the world for guests to peruse when they need a quiet moment.
