Another Extraordinary Year for Art Basel Miami

Eliot Hess


Art Basel/Miami art fairs are global platforms for people’s imaginations. It’s astonishing how many hundreds of galleries show up every year to exhibit artworks that they think will catch the attention of collectors who will pay their asking prices. It’s like walking into a fantasyland where there are no rules and regulations. Just roll the dice and maybe you will get lucky to buy or sell. Either way, Art Basel is an extraordinary experience.


According to the Art Basel website, more than 200 of the world's leading international modern and contemporary art galleries feature their artworks and the works of approximately 4,000 artists, including paintings, sculptures, installations, photography, film, video, and digital art.
