Art Basel Planning Its Biggest Ever Miami Fair This Year

Art Basel has announced plans for its biggest art fair ever in Miami in 2022.

The record fair size comes as Art Basel celebrates its 20 year anniversary in Miami. The first Art Basel Miami Beach took place in 2002.

According to a press release, the 2022 edition of Art Basel Miami Beach will feature 283 galleries from 38 countries and territories – including 26 first-time participants.

By comparison, the 2021 edition of Art Basel Miami Beach featured 253 galleries, with 44 first time galleries.

In a statement, Art Basel Global Director Marc Spiegler said the show “has played a galvanizing role in the city’s profound cultural transformation” since it was launched 20 years ago.

Can’t wait! Instead of a Banana Peel stapled to the wall as an art piece, I think I’m going staple a dead cat fish to the wall.

It’s good to be well and healed. Being sick sucks. Being well-heeled is good too.

Messier traffic, and even though it is true our city has matured a lot, we have a long way to go!!! Thank god for Art Basel, we don’t have enough local talent or leaders to do the job.
