Art Basel’s 13th edition in Miami Beach
Art Basel’s show in Miami Beach returns this December for its 13th edition with 267 leading international galleries, drawn from 31 countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. 2014 will mark the debut of Survey, a new sector dedicated to precise art-historical projects. In addition to showing premier artworks ranging from Modern masters to the latest contemporary pieces across five gallery sectors, many galleries will present works in Art Basel’s project-based sectors: Kabinett, Public and Film. The Art Basel show in Miami Beach, whose Lead Partner is UBS, will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center from December 4 to December 7.

Alongside a strong presence of returning galleries from North America, first-time exhibitors from the United States will include Clifton Benevento, Freedman Fitzpatrick, Honor Fraser, Garth Greenan Gallery, Michael Jon, Menconi + Schoelkopf and Simone Subal Gallery.

Survey—the new sector dedicated to precise art-historical projects ranging from solo shows to thematic exhibitions—will launch in Miami Beach with 13 select galleries. The sector will present nine solo exhibitions: Ralston Crawford (Menconi + Schoelkopf), Paul Feeley (Garth Greenan Gallery), Poul Gernes (Galleri Bo Bjerggaard), Tetsuya Ishida (Y++ Wada Fine Arts), Alison Knowles (James Fuentes), Lotty Rosenfeld (espaivisor), Niki de Saint Phalle (Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois), Michelle Stuart (Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects) and Alfredo Volpi (Galeria Bergamin). These presentations will be shown alongside group exhibitions by The Taller Torres-García (Cecilia de Torres, Ltd.); Henry Darger and Marcel Storr (Andrew Edlin Gallery); Andrei Monastyrski, Valie Export and Alfons Schilling (Charim Galerie); and Gina Pane, Rosemarie Castoro, Lenora de Barros and Lydia Okumura (Broadway 1602).
Comprising 192 of the world’s leading galleries, the Galleries sector is the centerpiece of the show. With a reapplication rate of 100 percent, the selection process was particularly competitive this year. Returning galleries will be joined, following a hiatus, by The Approach, Galeria Raquel Arnaud, Maccarone, Giò Marconi Gallery and ShanghART, while two galleries who previously presented their artists in Nova will exhibit in the sector for the first time: Casas Riegner and galerie frank elbaz.
Providing younger galleries with a platform to present new work by up to three artists, Nova will feature 34 exhibitors. The 16 curated solo booths of Positions will provide a focused insight into individual practices, from conceptual artists to painters. Following the success of its Miami Beach premiere in 2013, Edition will return with 12 global leaders in the field of prints and limited-editioned works.
