2014 Information - Art Basel Miami Beach is the most important art show in the United States, a cultural and social highlight for the Americas. Leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa show historical work from the masters of Modern and contemporary art, as well as newly created pieces by emerging stars. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, films, and editioned works of the highest quality are on display at the main exhibition hall. You'll also find artworks in Collins Park and films in the evening at SoundScape Park.

Art Basel is comprised of multiple sectors, each of which has its own selection process and committee of experts, who review applicants and make the final selection of show participants. The seven show sectors offer a diverse collection of artworks, including pieces by established artists and newly emerging artists, curated projects, site-specific experiential work, and video.

Galleries: The largest sector with more than 200 of the world's leading Modern and contemporary art galleries - from North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia. They display paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, prints, photography, film, video, and digital art by over 4,000 artists.

Nova: Designed for galleries to present one, two or three artists showing new works that have been created within the last three years, the Nova sector often features never-before-seen pieces fresh from the artist's studio and strong juxtapositions.

Positions: This sector allows curators, critics, and collectors to discover ambitious new talents from all over the globe by providing a platform for a single artist to present one major project.

Edition: Leading publishers of editioned works, prints, and multiples exhibit the results of their collaboration with renowned artists.

Kabinett: Participants are chosen from the Galleries sector to present curated exhibitions in a separately delineated space within their booths. The curatorial concepts for Kabinett are diverse, including thematic group exhibitions, art-historical showcases, and solo shows.

Public: This sector offers its visitors a chance to see outdoor sculptures, interventions, and performances, sited within an open and public exhibition space at Collins Park (2100 Collins AVE) near the beach. The sector is produced in collaboration with the Bass Museum of Art.

Film: The Film sector presents a dynamic program of films by and about artists. Screenings take place inside the Convention Center, and in the outdoor setting of SoundScape Park where works are shown on the 7,000-square-foot outdoor projection wall of the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center.

Survey: Survey presents precise art historical projects that may include solo presentations by an individual artist, or juxtapositions and thematic exhibits from artists representing a range of cultures, generations, and artistic approaches.

NADA Art Fair logo

NADA Art Fair - Miami Beach
December 3 - 5, 2015
The Fontainebleau Miam Beach, 4441 Collins, Miami Beach, FL 33141
http://www.newartdealers.org

Founded in 2002, New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA) is a not-for-profit collective of professionals working with contemporary art. Our mission is to create an open flow of information, support, and collaboration within our field and to develop a stronger sense of community among our constituency. NADA's fair is held in parallel with Art Basel Miami Beach and is recognized as a much needed alternative assembly of the world's youngest and strongest art galleries dealing with emerging Contemporary Art. It is the only major American art fair to be run by a non-profit organization.

Our international group of members includes both galleries and individuals (art professionals, independent curators, and established gallery directors). The various perspectives and ideas offered by our diverse roster creates a network which, at its most basic, is a resource which people could contribute to and take as much (or as little) as they are inclined. The benefits for some may be a matter of business, for others a source of intellectual or aesthetic stimulation.

To date, our initiatives have succeeded on two fronts: making the contemporary arts more accessible for the general public, and creating opportunities that nurture the growth of emerging artists, curators, and galleries. Our EVENTS have included: artist talks/gallery walks with critics and curators; benefits in support of charitable institutions; members-only seminars to stimulate dedication and ethics in our profession; and an annual art fair in Miami, which is held in December and is free and open to the public.

Don't plan on walking to this art fair, look for the free shuttle service near Art Basel Miami Beach.
The pick-up and drop-off is at 17th and Washington, near the southeast corner of the convention center. Shuttle service begins each day at 10:30am.

December 1 - 6, 2015
Mana Wynwood, 318 NW 23rd Street, Miami, FL 33127
http://www.pintamiami.com//

Since its creation in 2007, Pinta has distinguished itself from the rest of the art fairs for its specific profile, defining its proposal geographically, placing its bet on quality while focusing on Latin American art identities and issues, and inviting mainstream galleries and artists with the aim of offering an international platform for the dissemination of art from Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula.

Its director, cultural manager and editor, Diego Costa Peuser, identifies the need for growth of the art market of Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula, and offers this platform to acknowledge the city of Miami as a new venue to consolidate the fair and to continue the promotion of Latin American and Iberian artists, fostering their expansion towards a global context.

Currently, contemporary art from Latin America, Spain and Portugal has gained an important place - in biennials, museums and institutions all over the globe. From its first edition to the present, Pinta has stood out for the quality of its curatorial staff and its collaboration with specialized institutions and art organizations.

Wynwood Walls
Conceived by the renowned community revitalizor and placemaker Tony Goldman in 2009. He was looking for something big to transform the warehouse district of Wynwood, and he arrived at a simple idea: "Wynwood's large stock of warehouse buildings, all with no windows, would be my giant canvases to bring to them the greatest street art ever seen in one place." Starting with the 25th-26th Street complex of six separate buildings, his goal was to create a center where people could gravitate to and explore, and to develop the area's pedestrian potential.

GETTING AROUND TOWN


picture of Miami Trolley


Miami Trolley
One of the few cities to have free trolley transportation, and it's a good way to get around Miami. In 2013 they had a route that included Art Basel Miami Beach, so most likely they'll have another for 2014. Try to use them when traveling from one area like Downtown to the Design District or along Biscayne Blvd. to Bayfront Park or the Perez Museum. The downside, you usually don't see one when you need it. If you can be flexible with your schedule they work great. If the trolley gets stopped in traffic (usually around the fairs) and you ask to be let out and walk the last block or two. Map of Miami Trolley


Art Fair Shuttles
Free shuttle services from one art fair to another. Look for them around the fairs and ask about them when first entering art fairs. It's important to know where the pick-up and drop off locations are, and what the schedules are (traffic can really mess up the schedules). Best use of the art fair shuttles is between Art Basel and Art Miami. Also shuttles connect Art Basel to several other art fairs. The pick-up and drop-off for Art Basel Miami Beach is at 17th and Washington, near the southeast corner of the convention center, in front of the Jackie Gleason Theater.

Think about grabbing any shuttle traveling the direction you're headed. For example; if you want to visit Scope, you might see a shuttle for Untitled or Aqua, just jump on and visit that fair, then continue on to your original destination.

Have a plan for traveling from your hotel to the first art fair each day. Then another plan for getting to the next fair during the day. If a shuttle is not in sight or arriving soon, think about sharing a Taxi others waiting, it's a great way to meet people.


Art Basel Miami Beach
Be sure to pick-up shuttle info at the information desk when entering ABMB. They have a shuttle bus service for visits to the museums and the major private art collections. The pickup location is usually directly across the street from Hall D of the Miami Beach Convention Center. Shuttles to other satellite art fair, are located at 17th and Washington, in front of the Jackie Gleason Theater. Tip: if you're trying to connect with a shuttle make sure you take the East exit (Beach side) out of the Convention Center. ABMB Shuttle Bus Online Schedule.

Aqua Art Miami
Free Shuttle Service during regular event hours, running approximately every 20 minutes to Art Basel (Convention Center) and Art Miami (Wynwood District).

Art Miami
Wednesday - Saturday Noon - 7pm, Sunday 12:30 - 6pm
Miami Beach Convention Center (17th and Washington) to/from Art Miami. Last shuttle leaves Art Miami 6:00 pm daily. Service ends 7:00pm. Also, from 10:00am - 2:30pm EPIC Hotel (Downtown near Miami River) to/from Art Miami Pavilion, shuttle departs every 30 minutes.

Concept Fair - Miami
There will be daily shuttle service between Art Basel Miami Beach and Concept.

NADA ART FAIR and SELECT - Miami Beach
Free shuttles running, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday beginning at 10:30am. Running between the NADA (67th/Collins), SELECT (72nd/Collins) and the Convention Center (17th and Washington).

Miami River Art Fair
Shuttle stops near the James L Knight Center and area hotels. Not sure of the shedule at this time. Last year the Art Miami shuttle stopped at the hotel across the street. Also, look for the free Miami Trolley it services the area. Station 4, Knight Center. Metro Mover, Free, Riverwalk Station and 88 SE 4th Street. Ask at the fair for exact directions to shuttles or other transportation.

Pulse and Fridge Art Fairs
Most likely will have shuttles running, no schedule at this time.


---------------------------------------------------------------


Other Ground Transportation

Taxi Cabs - They're the way to go when you're short on time and not traveling far, plus they're easy to find. Taxi's can be a good way to travel around, but be careful, know where you're going and how you might drive if you were driving. Ask your hotel for best directions to your destination, then ask them to get you a cab driver that speaks your language. Frequently taking a side street is the fastest and shortest way from one fair to another. Also if traveling from Miami to Miami Beach look for others that might be interested in sharing a cab. It's also a good way to meet people.

Yellow Cabs (305) 444-4444
Super Yellow Cabs (305) 888-7777
Central Cabs (305) 532-5555
Miami-Dade Taxis (305) 551-1111
Sunshine Cabs (305) 445-3333

UBER - Like a cab but better and cooler. You'll need a credit card to use them.

The Miami-Dade Transportation System is really good and we recommend using it when in Miami. Use taxi cabs when going short distances and use the free shuttles when traveling between Miami and Miami Beach.
