Around 200 of the world’s leading international Modern and contemporary art galleries display artworks by over 4,000 artists, including paintings, sculptures, installations, photography, film, video, and digital art. Visitors can find works ranging from editioned pieces by young artists to museum-caliber masterpieces.
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.
Joining an extensive roster of returning galleries will be first-time participants from North and South America, including from Los Angeles: The Box, Marc Selwyn Fine Art and Various Small Fires; from New York: Callicoon Fine Arts, Clearing, Di Donna, Thomas Erben Gallery, JTT and Off Vendome; from Mexico City: House of Gaga and joségarcía ,mx; and from Curitiba in Brazil: Simões de Assis Galeria de Arte. New participants from Europe include Christian Andersen, Galleria d’Arte Maggiore G.A.M., Galerie Greta Meert, Galerie Maria Bernheim, High Art and Vigo Gallery. Reflecting Art Basel’s global reach, first time exhibitors from Asia will include Edouard Malingue Gallery, Leo Xu Projects and Nanzuka.
Comprising 193 of the world’s leading galleries, the Galleries sector presents the highest quality of painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography and video works. Highly competitive, the sector is always a highlight, leading 98% of last year’s exhibitors to reapply. In addition to many long time exhibitors, Galerie Nagel Draxler returns for this edition following a five-year hiatus. After previously participating in the show’s proposal based sectors, eight exhibitors will join the Galleries sector for the first time, including: Altman Siegel, Bergamin & Gomide, Cherry and Martin, GALLERYSKE, Galerija Gregor Podnar, Labor, Menconi + Schoelkopf and Pilar Corrias.
