Since 1970, Art Basel's goal has been to connect the world's premier galleries and their patrons, as well serving as a meeting point for the international art world. Now, over forty years later, its three fairs - in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami Beach rank as the premier shows of their kind, presenting 20th and 21st century art with a strong curatorial perspective. In our American show, leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa show significant work from the masters of Modern and contemporary art, as well the new generation of emerging stars. Paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, films, and editioned works of the highest quality are on display in the main exhibition hall. Ambitious large-scale artworks, films and performances become part of the city's outdoor landscape at nearby Collins Park and SoundScape Park.

This is the epitome of art shows where you can find art from $10,000 to millions and mostly on the high side. It is better than a modern museum as all of the work is for sale. A great opportunity to learn about art and...More

Agree- December 1-4

My husband and I are going to Art Basel for our first time in Miami. We are excited. Are we allowed to buy art as well? If we purchase the all weekend pass, is it the same place we can also buy art as well? Thanks!
