Art Basel Miami Beach

iami Beach, December 2013… While winter moves into the northern hemisphere, the big names in art are basking in the warmth preceding
Art Basel, now a key stage in the race to the top contemporary art fairs. For Brussels gallery owner Rodolphe Janssens, "Art Basel Miami Beach is the number one fair in the US, because of the international quality of its collectors from not only America but also Europe and the Middle East. After Basel itself, it is the second best fair in the world." Some, like Kamel Mennour, have opted for Miami and abandoned New York's Armory Show, now less favourable than the Florida fair, which started up in 2002. Loyal to both events, Janssens says, "For me, Miami provides an opportunity to meet the top collectors from all over the US, and not just from New York, which is the case with Frieze and the Armory Show." And with an estimated £1.5 millions' worth of transactions, as the Guardian announced in December 2012, the financial potential of Art Basel Miami Beach is staggering. Apart from the economic stakes, the fair sparks a frenzy that grips the entire city during this week, with around

twenty satellite fairs including Design Miami, Scope, Art Miami, Nada and Brazil Art Fair, and a fine turn-out of street artists, who come from all around the world to take over the city's walls. Private collections open to the public, as do museums, institutions and foundations, with programmes echoing events in the fair. For example, the British artist Tracey Emin, to be found at the stand of New York's Lehmann Maupin gallery, also features at the Miami Museum of Contemporary Art with her first exhibition in the States, entitled "Angel without you". Meanwhile, the Pérez Museum will be inaugurating its new building (designed by Swiss architects Herzog and De Meuron) with the exhibition "Ai Weiwei: According to What?" on 4 December.

What’s new?
The twelfth fair has quite surprises, like the creation of a new sector devoted to publishing. Following the success of this section in Basel, the organisers have transposed the model to Miami, kicked off by thirteen galleries including London's Alan Cristea Gallery, the American Pace Prints and Crown Point Press galleries,
