As we pointed out in part one, Miami is going to be awash in art shows this December, each one vying for the attention and patronage of art collectors and seekers.
Art Basel Miami Beach (December 6 - 9), at the Miami Beach Convention Center (1901 Convention Center Drive), is part of the globe-spanning art shows based out of Switzerland, features over 200 galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa with Modern and contemporary art, as well as new and emerging talent. The exhibition hall will include paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, and films for show-goers to peruse. The show includes a series of lectures and panel discussions on subjects such as sustainable museum funding, art education, and what art audiences are like in the 21st century. Exhibitors include Alfonso Artiaco, Bodega, DAN Galeria and many more.
The Scope Miami Beach art show (December 4 - 9) at 801 Ocean Drive, is now in its 18th edition, and has been honored by the City of Miami Beach Mayor’s Office and Commission for its extraordinary cultural impact. Scope Miami Beach features 140 International Exhibitors from 25 countries including Art Unified, Gallery We, Modus, and more. The show will be curated by art magazine Hi-Fructose, and look at contemporary and street artists such as Okuda, HOTTEA, and AJ Fosik. Hi-Fructose will also be conducting a series of panel discussions. A special exhibition by Netherlands-based artist Hajar Benjida, “Young Thug as Paintings”, pays homage to the cultural capital of Jeffery Lamar Williams, better known as Young Thug, one of the most influential musical artists of this generation by juxtaposing him with some of history's most revered works of art.
