Art Basel - Miami Beach


Art Basel's 16th edition in Miami Beach will feature 268 leading galleries within an entirely new floorplan and show architecture. 
2017 is an important year for the cultural scene in Miami with The Bass re-opening after a large-scale renovation and The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami (ICA Miami) inaugurating its new building in the heart of the Miami Design District. 


Now in its 16th edition, Art Basel in Miami Beach is the premier art show in the Americas, with more than half of the participating galleries having exhibition spaces in the region. Alongside a robust roster of returning galleries, the 2017 edition of the show features 20 galleries who are participating in the Miami Beach show for the first time. The show welcomes nine first-time participants from North and South America, including Anat Ebgi from Los Angeles; Chapter NY, David Lewis Gallery and Tyler Rollins Fine Art from New York; Inman Gallery from Houston; Patron from Chicago; Galeria Jaqueline Martins and Ricardo Camargo Galeria from São Paulo; and Isla Flotante from Buenos Aires. 


The Galleries sector will feature outstanding presentations of painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography and video works, presented by 198 of the world’s leading galleries. This year, a strong list of returning participants is joined by 10 galleries which have previously participated in the show’s Nova, Positions or Survey sectors: 47 Canal, Bureau, Garth Greenan Gallery, Kalfayan Galleries, Galeria Leme, Peres Projects, Galeria Plan B, Sfeir-Semler Gallery, Jessica Silverman Gallery and Tokyo Gallery + BTAP. One gallery – Applicat-Prazan – will be completely new to the show while Konrad Fischer Galerie and Fergus McCaffrey will both return to the Galleries sector in Miami Beach after a hiatus. 


The Edition sector presents 11 global leaders in the field of prints and editioned works: Alan Cristea Gallery, Crown Point Press, Gemini G.E.L. LLC, Sabine Knust, Carolina Nitsch, Pace Prints, Paragon, Polígrafa Obra Gràfica, STPI, Two Palms and ULAE. 


Positions allows curators, critics, collectors and visitors to discover new talents from across the globe by providing a platform for galleries to present one major project by a single artist. This year, the sector will feature 14 solo booths. 


Nova provides galleries with a platform to present new work by up to three artists, and will feature 29 exhibitors this year. First-time exhibitors include: Dépendance featuring drawings, sculpture, painting and film by Ed Atkins (b. 1982), Gillian Carnegie (b. 1971) and Peter Wächtler (b. 1979); David Lewis Gallery presenting works by Dawn Kasper (b. 1977) and Lucy Dodd (b. 1981); and Tyler Rollins Fine Art staging a never-before- seen installation by Manuel Ocampo (b. 1965) reflecting on current global political events.
