Art Basel Miami Beach celebrates its twentieth birthday this year, meaning the annual art bacchanal is poised to once again dominate the season. Since launching in 2002, Art Basel has become North America's premier art fair and an anticipated fall event in Miami. This year's show is open to the public Thursday, December 1 through Saturday, December 3, with the invitation-only Vernissage, VIP and media previews scheduled to take place between Tuesday, November 29 and Wednesday, November 30. This year, Art Basel is debuting a new ticket tier, the Premium+ card. The unlimited four-day pass includes access to the Vernissage on Wednesday, along with two yet-to-be-announced masterclasses and a guided show tour by ArtNexus.

What is Art Basel Miami Beach?

Art Basel Miami Beach is an annual art show held at Miami Beach, first staged in 2002. Art Basel, which stages four major fairs each year—in Hong Kong, Basel, Miami Beach and, for the first time this year, Paris—focuses on modern and contemporary art and puts nearly 300 galleries from across the globe in front of the art world’s top curators, museums and collectors. The week of Art Basel has become a major draw for Miami, with parties, satellite fairs and major events being held in conjunction with the show—and now known collectively as Miami Art Week.

Art Basel Miami Beach comprises eight sections: Galleries (works from leading galleries), Meridians (large-scale, boundary-pushing projects), Nova (works created within the last three years), Positions (dedicated to emerging artists), Survey (works highlighting artistic practices of historic relevance), Edition (editioned pieces), Kabinett (curated exhibitions) and Magazines (international art publications). The show also includes a schedule of moderated panels as part of its Conversations series.
