Every December, the art world converges in Miami for Art Basel, the preeminent annual festival celebrating the works of established and emerging contemporary artists. The American show – Art Basel is also hosted in both Basel and Hong Kong annually – showcases work from leading galleries around the world, particularly the Americas. 2016 marks the 14th edition of this important cultural gathering.
Thousands come to Miami to see and be seen for this highly anticipated event, held annually at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Though officially staged at the Convention Center, the event encompasses the city as paintings, sculpture, installations and performance art abound in Miami streets every December. At nearby Collins Park, large-scale works are showcased and various performances occur throughout the festival.
