Art Basel, Miami Beach

Art Basel - Miami Beach

Where in the world do culture, cocktails and beach life collide in such perfect harmony? Miami of course! This cosmopolitan city provides the perfect backdrop to cultural events of all kinds, from the annual Winter EDM Music Conference, to the elite Miami Yacht Show. Yet, it’s the annual Art Basel exhibition that it’s most known for, attracting hundreds of America’s top galleries and art museums, as they showcase modern art in the heart of Miami beach.

Returning this December 6-9, if you’re planning to visit, then it’s time to start thinking about that Miami villa rental, as 2018 promises to be another memorable year!

What is Art Basel?

Art Basel Miami Beach showcases modern art from more than 250 galleries and 4,000 artists. This renowned annual event attracts an international audience, A-list clientele and media attention for its commitment to the arts.

Expect to see contemporary paintings, sketches and drawings, sculptures, photography, 3D and installation art, digital art as well as video art.

Where does it take place?

Art Basel takes place in the Miami Beach Convention Center, in the heart of the city center. Some activity spills out to nearby Collins Park and Soundscape Park too.

What social events take place?

More than just an art fair, the city comes alive when Art Basel comes to town. This means that everything from restaurants to Miami beach luxury rentals, are booked weeks in advance. Be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.

This is a bustling time to visit the city with plenty of parties and pop-up soirees to attend. Official venues tend to be disclosed nearer the time, so keep an eye out in Time Out Miami. However, the Basement at the Miami Beach EDITION, club ORA and Broken Shaker, are some of the most popular hangouts that will no doubt be hosting parties during this exciting time.

Where’s a good place to stay?

With more than 70,000 visitors descending on Miami it’s a busy time to visit. For the perfect trip, luxury rentals in Miami beach are some of the best locations to stay, offering peace and privacy.
