It is the largest and the most prestigious art fair in the United States which takes place on Miami Beach each year in December. Art Basel stages the world’s premier art shows for contemporary and Modern art works. The production is collaborated with local institutions for each edition. The festival displays stands featuring leading galleries from around the world; each shows the latest developments in the visual arts, and also offering spectators new ideas and inspirations.

Public art works are put on display nearby Collins Park, and Film is played across three venues, Miami Beach Convention Center, in the outdoor setting of the Sound Scape Park and at the Colony Theater.
