Are you ready to dive into Art Basel 2017, the most important US contemporary art fair?
Created by an idea of collectors Trudl Bruckner, Balz Hilt and Ernst Beyeler, the Art Basel fair has established itself as the main international art meeting not only from the point of view of the art market, but also of artistic research.
In the year 2000, the Art Basel fair also carried out an edition that takes place every year in December in Miami Beach called Art Basel Miami Beach (December 7 – 10, Miami Beach Convention Center, 2017), leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa and showing significant works from the masters of modern and contemporary art, as well as the new generation of emerging stars.
Over 200 of the world’s leading international modern and contemporary art galleries display artworks by over 4,000 artists. Paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, films, and editioned works of the highest quality are displayed in the main room. Ambitious large scale artworks and performances become part of the Miami landscape at nearby Collins Park and SoundScape Park.
But Art Basel Miami 2017 looks at art from every perspective and, to do so, hosts at the fair artist talks and discussions with a range of speakers including artists, gallerists, curators, collectors, architects, art lawyers, critics, and many other cultural players. Look Lateral will be present and will tell you the fair day by day. Stay tuned and follow us on social media!
