Art Basel Miami Beach Extravaganza Kicks Off
RMG Staffing is hiring now for the 18th edition of Art Basel Miami Beach.
This year, Art Basel in Miami Beach introduces its new sector, Meridians, dedicated to large-scale installations (those things that can only fit in a museum or art warehouse).
On Thursday, the fair announced the selection of 34 projects— all that would fit in the 60,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom atop the Miami Beach Convention Center. (Actually, only 33 fit inside. An installation by Jose Davila will be staged outdoors on the convention center’s north side.)

Today Art Basel announced the 269 leading international galleries selected for its 2019 edition in Miami Beach this December. As the premier art fair of the Americas, more than half of the exhibitors have exhibition spaces in North and South America, providing a unique overview of the art scenes within the region. 12 galleries from the Americas are participating in the fair for the first time: Barro Arte Contemporáneo from Buenos Aires; Document, moniquemeloche, and Mariane Ibrahim Gallery from Chicago; M+B and Parker Gallery from Los Angeles; Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, Company Gallery and Karma from New York; Galería Agustina Ferreyra from Mexico City; Central Fine from Miami Beach; and Cooper Cole from Toronto. Given the fair’s global focus, the list of exhibitors includes galleries from 33 countries and territories spanning five continents, with a particularly strong lineup of galleries and artists from Asia. New entries to the fair from the region include 10 Chancery Lane Gallery from Hong Kong, Magician Space from Beijing, and ROH Projects from Jakarta, while Hanart TZ Gallery from Hong Kong participates for the first time in the Galleries sector. In addition, Taka Ishii Gallery from Tokyo and Edouard Malingue Gallery with exhibition spaces in Hong Kong and Shanghai both return to the fair after a hiatus.
The show’s comprehensive narrative goes beyond its geographical breadth. Leading experts in Modern and historical works such as Acquavella Galleries, Landau Fine Art and Mary-Anne Martin Fine Art are joined by a new generation of art galleries including Clearing, Galeria Jaqueline Martins, and Société, allowing the show to span over a century of art history. Additionally, Meridians will provide a new platform for galleries and their artists to show work that pushes the boundaries of the traditional art fair layout. Curated by Magalí Arriola, Director of Museo Tamayo, the sector will be staged in the new Grand Ballroom of the MBCC, a column-less exhibition space of almost 6,000 square meters (60,000 square feet) that is directly connected to the exhibition halls.
