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.
