Art Basel Miami Beach
This year’s show was more diverse than ever before and welcomed four first-time participants from Africa, including friars Gallery from Kampala; First Floor Gallery Harare with spaces in Harare and Victoria Falls; SMAC Art Gallery with spaces in Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Stellenbosch; and Rele Gallery with areas in Lagos and Los Angeles.
‘It has been incredible to witness the energy again in the halls and the enormous pent-up demand for seeing, buying, and selling art in person.
Following its success in Basel and Hong Kong, Art Basel Live amplified onsite presentations in Miami Beach, with a digital program comprising Online Viewing Rooms, virtual walkthroughs, live-streamed conversations, and social media broadcasts transmitting the vibrancy and excitement from the show floor to the broadest possible global audience.
We were so pleased to see Art Basel Miami Beach back in full swing and encouraged to have met so many new people at this edition of the fair. It felt like a shift in gear, even more energy than the previous fair. The week was certainly a great success, with brisk sales, and it was rewarding to be making these sales in person on the booth again. We’re leaving on a high, having enjoyed all that Miami’s expanding art scene has to offer.
