Art Basel, Miami Beach: Tickets, Tours, Address, Phone Number, Art Basel Reviews: 4.5/5

About
Since 1970, Art Basel's goal has been to connect the world's premier galleries and their patrons, as well serving as a meeting point for the international art world. Now, over forty years later, its three fairs - in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami Beach rank as the premier shows of their kind, presenting 20th and 21st century art with a strong curatorial perspective. In our American show, leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa show significant work from the masters of Modern and contemporary art, as well the new generation of emerging stars. Paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, films, and editioned works of the highest quality are on display in the main exhibition hall. Ambitious large-scale artworks, films and performances become part of the city's outdoor landscape at nearby Collins Park and SoundScape Park.

My girlfriend and I visited during the off-season, it was super cool but we missed the big hype in December. I will definitely be back for Art Basel in 20201!

One big rich persons art show where people tape bananas to walls and sell them for $100,000. It’s a joke, the locals hate it, city loves it because money talks.

A great time to visit Miami
Dec 2019
There is more art than one person can see. Multiple venues all around the city. Scope is my favorite because you can see newer artists at more reasonable prices if you are looking to buy.

Art Overload
Dec 2019
I overloaded on art in and around the convention center. Lots of traffic around the area, too, which sucks! But once you get in, the art will calm you down.

Full spectrum art exhibit
Dec 2019
Finally, scheduled to attend this festival after hearing about it for many years. I’m very happy I made it happen. I attended the Context and Spectrum shows on separate days. The vastness of the exhibits, and the fact that they are spread out across the city is impressive. It’s overwhelming in a good way. If you up to a lot of walking, you are in for a treat. I enjoyed speaking with the artists, and taking in some very interesting pieces. I also, spent a night enjoying some of many block parties occurring throughout the city. It was nice to see both locals and international folks really enjoying this event. I will definitely try to attend in future years.
