Art Basel Miami Beach, a cultural and social highlight of the contemporary art calendar, opens today at the Miami Beach Convention Center, drawing legions of artists, curators, critics, collectors, and dealers from across the world. With over 250 exhibitors from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa, the show will exhibit works by over 2,000 artists. This year’s program includes the new Oceanfront area at Collins Park, a venue for cultural events, such as Art Basel Conversations, Art Perform, Art Video and Art Film. Pae White has designed a social space using theatre scrim, scaffolding, and bleachers at the Oceanfront area, the first commission of its kind by Art Basel Miami Beach.
Art Basel Miami Beach takes place from December 3-6, 2009.
