Art Basel 2019 will be held from December 5th to December 8th. The event, held each year at Miami Beach, is North America’s premier art fair
This years’ event is expected to meet if not surpass previous record visitor numbers of over 70,000 people, including many notable celebrities. The festivities go well beyond exhibitions: crowds flock to Miami at this time not just for the art but also for the glitzy parties which accompany Art Basel.
Art Basel is the Northern American component of a series of international art fairs, the others held in Basel, Switzerland and Hong Kong. The event features significant paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and films.
Works from masters of Modern and contemporary art are displayed alongside those from exciting, up and coming artists. Pieces are drawn from 250 leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
