Representing 32 countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, Art Basel Miami Beach is the premier art show in the Americas.  The 268 international galleries selected for the 2017 Miami Beach show, December 7 to 10, encompass artworks ranging from modern masterpieces and historical projects to new works by both established and emerging artists. This year, a new floorplan will reflect the on-going renovation improvements at the Miami Beach Convention Center. The completely redesigned exhibition layout by Tom Postma Design features added exhibition space, larger booths, wider aisles and enhanced lounging and dining options, as well as four entrances to the halls.

The Galleries sector will feature painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography and video works, presented by 198 of the world’s leading galleries. This year, a strong list of returning participants is joined by ten galleries which have previously participated in the show’s Nova, Positions or Survey sectors. The Edition sector presents 11 global leaders in the field of prints and editioned works. Positions allows curators, critics, collectors, and visitors to discover new talents from across the globe by providing a platform for galleries to present one major project by a single artist. Nova provides 29 galleries with a platform to present new work by up to three artists. Survey will return for its fourth year with 16 focused presentations of work created before 2000. Several exhibitors will also present works in Art Basel’s project-based sectors: Kabinett, and Public, curated for the first time by Philipp Kaiser, and Film.

Glackens (b. 1870, d. 1938): A Modernist in the Making’, while the Wolfsonian-FIU will present ‘Julius Klinger (b. 1876, d. 1942): Posters for a Modern Age’.
