Art Basel in America, Miami Beach, December 1 – 4, 2016

In the American show, 267 leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa show significant works 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.

Attracting leading collectors, curators, museum directors and critics from across the globe, Art Basel in Miami Beach is the premier art show of the Americas, with half of the galleries having exhibition spaces in the region. The geographically diverse list of participants spans 29 countries around the world, including Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Cuba, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Norway, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. 2016 marks the fifteenth edition of the Miami Beach show, which has expanded over the years to include dedicated sections for film, outdoor sculpture, works in edition and curated shows of historical significance. The show has always offered both exploration – with new works created by emerging artists – and a continuity of a high quality international roster. Over 85 galleries exhibiting this year also took part in the very first edition in Miami Beach in 2002.
