Currently, the citizens of Miami Beach are facing mandatory evacuation due to the threat of Hurricane Irma, which the city’s mayor is calling a “nuclear hurricane.” But come December 6, Art Basel Miami Beach will open to VIPs at the newly refurbished Miami Beach Convention Center.
Today, the fair revealed its exhibitor list, which is sporting 268 galleries from 32 countries. The new renovations to the fair’s Miami Beach stomping grounds will come with a spiffied-up floor plan, of which we’ll hear more about closer to the fair.
The roster of Art Basel Miami Beach 2017 has a few newcomers, including, from New York, David Lewis Gallery and Chapter NY. Meanwhile, outfits such as 47 Canal, Bureau, Peres Projects, Galeria Plan B and Jessica Silverman Gallery are showing with the Galleries sector for the first time, having been included in other sectors in years past.
In Positions, JTT will be showing sculptures by Dan Herschlein, and at the Real Fine Arts booth, Nicolas Ceccaldi will be looking at “religion as a contemporary social phenomenon through new paintings and take-away brochures.”
In Nova, Dépendance will be showing work by Ed Atkins, Gillian Carnegie, and Peter Wächtler, and local Miami outfit David Castillo will have photographs by Lyle Ashton Harris and Xaviera Simmons, as well as a Kalup Linzy performance.
