Art Basel in Miami Beach 2016: Public

01 Dec 201628 Feb 2017

As part of Art Basel’s show in Miami Beach, over 20 large-scale sculptures and installations by leading and emerging international artists will be installed in Collins Park.

Public is again curated by Nicholas Baume, Director and Chief Curator of Public Art Fund, and select works from the exhibition will remain on view through February 2016.

Nicholas Baume’s curatorial focus for the 2016 show will be ‘Ground Control’, inspired by David Bowie, who passed away earlier this year. Under this theme, the Public sector will examine ways in which artists invent and imagine new kinds of space: physical, social and psychic. Interpreting ‘Ground Control’ literally, the works will invite viewers into new relationships with familiar surroundings and reframe Collins Park into a site for transformational experiences with contemporary art.
