So, we’re looking forward to this years Art Basel Miami Beach, where we’ll be checking out the finest art to date, with the added bonus of some of our favourite artists lined up to take on the Walls of Wynwood, including Nychos, Vexta and Elle.
Art Basel stages the world’s premier Modern and contemporary art shows, held annually in Basel (Switzerland), Miami Beach, and Hong Kong. Founded by gallerists in 1970, Art Basel has been a driving force in supporting the role that galleries play in the nurturing of artists, and the development and promotion of visual arts.
Art Basel also recently launched a crowdfunding initiative with Kickstarter to support non-profit visual arts organizations. The Art Basel Crowdfunding Initiative will aim to catalyze international support for non-profit visual arts organizations worldwide by promoting outstanding projects to Art Basel’s extensive global audience.
Art Basel’s curated page on Kickstarter will feature a wide variety of art projects, selected by an independent jury, comprised of: Hammad Nasar, curator, writer and Head of Research and Programmes at the Asia Art Archive, Hong Kong; Glenn Phillips, Acting Head of the Department of Architecture and Contemporary Art at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles; and Mari Spirito, Founding Director of Protocinema, Istanbul and New York.
As usual, Miami Beach Art Basel will feature a strong roster of talks and films to accompany the cutting edge artworks.
