Events: Art Basel Miami Beach 2014

Harper's Bazaar Art Basel Miami Beach Kick-off Brunch, 2013

Art Basel Miami Beach was founded in 2002 by Samuel Keller as the sister expo to Art Basel in Switzerland. Keller saw an opportunity to bring together the global art community in sunny South Florida during a time when wealthy art collectors in Europe and New York are looking to retreat from the cold. Art Basel is unique in that it brings together the worlds of fashion, music, celebrity, and art to create an environment of luxury where elite art collectors from around the world will look to purchase one of a kind contemporary and historic artworks.

The Beginning…

In 2002, Art Basel started at the Miami Beach Convention center with 160 galleries showing their works of art in the form of installations, sculptures, paintings, photographs, and films. In 2005 Craig Robbins founded Design Miami, originally Design.05, as a way to celebrate prominent designers in the architectural and design industries. This venue in tandem with Art Basel ensured a well-rounded experience of art and design for the visiting collectors and general public alike.

In its 13th year, Art Basel Miami Beach will host nearly 300 galleries and over 70,000 international visitors. Design Miami will be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and will celebrate by honoring Peter Marino with the Designer Visionary Award, a new award to celebrate individuals who have significantly contributed to the field of design. Peter Marino is the genius behind the design of many retail stores around the world including the Louis Vuitton and Fendi flagships on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Design Miami will also introduce Design Curio, an exhibition platform for artists to use various art mediums to showcase the state of art and design today and provide a background for the many artists that will be showcasing their works at the fair.
