For the 2023 edition of Art Basel’s premier global fair in the Americas, Art Basel will bring together 277 leading international galleries to present the highest quality artworks across all media – from painting and sculpture to photography and digital works – by artists ranging from early-twentieth-century Modern pioneers to contemporary practitioners. Nearly two-thirds of this year’s galleries hail from North and South America, joined by an exceptional array of exhibitors from Europe, Asia, and Africa.

The fair will welcome 24 newcomers to the Miami Beach show, with three entering directly into the main Galleries sector: Galerie Minsky (Paris), Ortuzar Projects (New York), and Weinstein Gallery (San Francisco). Six galleries will join the fair for the first time in Nova, the sector for galleries presenting new works by up to three artists; 8 galleries in Positions, hosting young galleries showcasing ambitious solo presentations by emerging international artists; and 7 galleries in Survey, dedicated to galleries highlighting artistic practices of historical relevance.

In addition, the fair will host compelling presentations across its special sectors:

  • Curated by Magalí Arriola, Mexico City-based curator and the Director of Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporaneo, Meridians will feature 19 large-scale projects which transcend the dimensions of a traditional art fair booth.
  • Kabinett – a mainstay section of the Miami Beach show, showcasing thematic group exhibitions, art-historical showcases, and solo presentations – will return, giving exhibitors the opportunity to present concisely curated installations within their main booths.
  • Programmed by curator Emily Butler and free to the public, the fair will again stage Conversations, a series of live debates bringing together today’s most inspiring cultural figures. The renowned program will feature thought leaders exchanging on the key topics shaping the world of art and culture.

More details on the presentations in MeridiansKabinett, and Conversations will be unveiled in the coming months, along with details on additional fair programming.

For the first time at the renewed MBCC, the fair will present an enhanced show layout, with the organization of five distinct plazas. The plazas are enhanced for improved visitor flow and seating, eating, and drinking rest points in the fair hall.

Noah Horowitz, CEO, Art Basel, says: ‘Having led our Miami Beach fair for six years as Director, Americas, I know first-hand the galvanizing role our show plays within the creative ecosystem of Miami, the broader region, and the global arts community. Art Basel Miami Beach continues to exceed expectations year after year, in the quality and range of the art on view, and in the singularly magnetic experience within and beyond the halls which continues to attract both established and entirely new audiences and bring out the best of the local cultural scene each December. Our offering this year demonstrates yet again the strength of our show as an engine of the world of art in the Americas and globally and as an utterly transformative cross-cultural experience – made possible by our premier exhibitors, our world-renowned cultural partners and collaborators in Miami Beach and South Florida, and our exceptional team.’

Spearheading the 2023 edition, Vincenzo de Bellis, Director, Fairs and Exhibition Platforms, says: ‘Visitors to our Miami Beach show this year will be met with surprises, and an expanded platform for discovering a diversity of artistic voices and perspectives, which echo and reverberate across Miami Beach’s ever-growing cultural offer. With new participants from Mexico to Poland and Egypt and a program both within and beyond the fair as we have never done before, there is an injection of freshness to the fair, and a vigor of experience which we look forward to playing out in full in December.’

Art Basel’s incoming Director, Miami Beach, Bridget Finn, will attend the 2023 edition in Miami Beach, which is spearheaded in the interim by de Bellis. Upon assuming her role this autumn, Finn will lead the direction of the Miami Beach show in 2024.
