Here it is! My annual Guide to Miami Art Week 2022, or what I fondly refer to as, “Not Another Art Basel Miami Listicle”! Yes, so many people write about this jam-packed week of everything art and not about art. Here’s your opportunity to see thousands of works by international artists, attend seminars and interactive programs, and find inspiration and fun.
As you know, my favorite time of the year begins with the Art Basel press preview and a glass of Champagne. I’ll then attempt to visit 7 satellite fairs and a few soirees provided that my feet can handle the mileage. Read the list below and follow my Instagram stories for a few sneak peeks and more! ~ Lisa @AllegoryPR #MyArtEscape.
Art Basel Miami Beach
ABMB is celebrating its 20th anniversary and this edition promises to be the largest to date. The fair will feature 282 exhibitors from 38 countries and territories – more than half of which hail from the Americas. In addition to its Galleries, Positions, Nova, Survey, and Edition sectors, the fair will host 20 large-scale projects as part of the Meridians sector, 29 curated installations within exhibitors’ booths in the Kabinett sector, as well as nine panels with leading art world voices in its renowned Conversations series.
The iconic art fair recently announced the launch of ‘Arcual’ — a new blockchain ecosystem offering smart contract solutions for the art community, co-founded with LUMA Foundation and brought to life by the technology and Web3 expertise of BCG Digital Ventures. This new initiative was born out of a shared mission to put artists at the center of the art ecosystem, offering them greater ownership, transparency, and participation in their careers.
