Plan Your Visit to Miami Art Basel - International Art Show
Winter brings the holiday season to the entire country, but for those lucky enough to live in the Magic City, this time of year also heralds the return of the premier contemporary art show to our sandy shores! From December 6 through 9, Miami will be taken over by all things Art Basel 2018, when hundreds of the world’s leading art galleries and thousands of artists from over 30 countries celebrate their love for visual creativity.
As one of the three outposts of this gathering, Art Basel Miami highlights modern works in six separate sectors taking up house at the Miami Beach Convention Center. These differing focuses will help you decide where to spend most of your time, as familiarizing the almost 500,000 square-foot layout of the Center can take the entire four days in itself.
A simple breakdown of the six sectors:
For newbies to the Art Basel scene, the Galleries section is a surefire hit. For others, it depends on what areas of art appeal most to you. Enhancing your appreciation is the ever-popular Conversations series, with live panels where artists and industry professional speak on global contemporary art issues.
More than 70,000 art enthusiasts are expected to attend, so plan ahead. Looking to maximize your personal visit by staying at one of the hotels in Miami near Art Basel Miami? Check out our special offers and relax in the convenient comfort and style of the Hilton Miami Downtown.
