Art Basel returns to Miami Beach this December

November 27, 2013 by  

Next month sees the return of ‘Art Basel’, an exhibition taking place in the Swiss city of Basel, as well as Hong Kong and Miami Beach. It is divided into seven sections, each covering a different type of art, which can include painting and film.

There will be numerous art exhibits and performances taking place in various venues throughout the Miami Beach area, along with talks, panel discussion and conversations with various artists.

Prior to the event, ‘The Art of Looting’, a brunch and opportunity to meet several speakers, is planned for December 1. The public opening night will take place on December 4 and will feature four different performances and a sound installation, all of which takes place at Collins Park.

Another related event, though not one presented by organizers of Art Basel, is the Life is Art T-shirt award and Art Basel welcome party. Featuring musical performances and a fire eating demonstration, it will be held at Cafe Babbo on December 2 from 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm. Tickets are $12 in advance or $20 at the door, while advance ticket buyers can also purchase a ticket and a T-shirt for $20.

Art Basel Miami Beach is taking place from December 5 to 8, and will likely attract visitors from all over the region, including nearby Hialeah. It is possible that some of those performing will choose to invest in products from local print companies, such as posters or flyers for advertising.
