Art Basel Miami Beach 2011

December 1, 2011

This year, Art Basel Miami Beach celebrates its 10th edition. After a bumpy start (the first date was cancelled because of 9/11), the sister fair to Art Basel in Basel, Switzerland has proved to be a big success. Not only for the fair itself, but also for the cultural scene of South Florida and Miami Beach with its private art collections and public institutions.

Art Basel Miami Beach 2011 showcases more than 260 galleries from all over the world. In total they present more than 2,000 artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. The fair is divided into several sections, including Art Video with outdoor video screenings, and Art Public with artworks and performances in Miami Beach’s Collins Park.

For the main section, Art Galleries, Art Basel’s selection committee has chosen more than 200 galleries, with more than half of the exhibitors from outside the US.

This video provides you with a tour through the fair on the opening day. When you stroll through the exhibition hall you see latest works by artists such as Olafur Eliasson, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, Nick Cave, Anish Kapoor, Olaf Nicolai, KRIWET, Kris Martin, Takashi Murakami, Haroon Mirza, Rob Pruitt, and Paul McCarthy. But there’s also expensive high heels, fancy dresses, posh handbags, and amazing hats – and the related celebrities.

Art Basel Miami Beach 2011, Opening Day, November 30, 2011.
