About the Show
Leading international galleries show work from masters of Modern and contemporary art as well as pieces by newly emerging stars. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, films, and editioned works of the highest quality are displayed in the main exhibition hall, while ambitious artworks and performances become part of the landscape at nearby beaches, Collins Park and SoundScape Park.
Seven show sectors offer a diverse collection of artworks, including pieces by established artists and newly emerging artists, curated projects, site-specific experiential work, film and video.
Art Basel's stimulating program of talks and panel discussions allow audiences to deepen their knowledge of artistic practice, the international art world, and the art market.
Our show in Miami Beach offers a full program of events including special presentations, talks and panel discussions, films, public artworks, and performances that take place throughout the city and its surrounding area.
Galleries from Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia, and Africa make up the impressive list of participants at our show in Miami Beach.

Attending the Show
50,000 international visitors attended the 2012 edition of Art Basel in Miami, with artists, collectors, gallerists, curators and art enthusiasts creating the excitement that makes this singular event a remarkable way to encounter art.
Exhibiting at the Show
Art Basel is strongly rooted in the principle that galleries play an essential role in the development and promotion of visual arts, and our sectors are thus carefully defined to provide opportunities for visitors to see many types of exhibitions.
Art Basel stages the world's premier Modern and contemporary art shows, held annually in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong. Founded by gallerists in 1970, Art Basel has been a driving force in supporting the role that galleries play in the nurturing of artists, and the development and promotion of visual arts.
