All eyes in the art world are on Miami Beach, FL this year as the 13th Annual Art Basel Week takes place in the Southeast resort. Over 75,000 individuals from all around the globe are expected to be attending various art exhibits, displays and festivities this week at the modern art celebration.
Miami is one of only three locations that holds Art Basel events in the entire world. Hong Kong and Basel Switzerland are the two others. The event, traditionally held in early December, gives visitors a warm winter vacation retreat in the hot tropical climate of South Beach.
Over 260 leading modern and contemporary art galleries participate in the main exhibit, which takes place at the Miami Beach Convention Center, located in South Beach. Additional exhibits, events and displays are held in outlying areas of Miami. Local museums also have events and exhibits in conjunction with Art Basel.
Singer Miley Cyrus kicked off the entertainment for the week, performing at a private concert at the Raleigh Hotel in South Beach. Film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Blunt and Kate Hudson were seen taking in the exhibits and displays.
Prominent watchmaker Swiss Legend is also participating in promotional events in Miami during Art Basel this week. The brand’s modern and innovative characteristics certainly capture the essence of the modern art celebration.
