From December 5 to 8, 2013, Art Basel will host the 12th edition of its show in Miami Beach, the most prestigious art show in the Americas. Now in its second decade, the show features more than 250 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa, displaying works by more than 4,000 artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Art Basel is currently accepting applications to four sectors: Galleries, Edition (new), Nova, and Positions. Exhibitors for each sector will be selected by the Art Basel in Miami Beach Selection Committee.
Galleries is the main exhibition sector of Art Basel, where leading art galleries for Modern and contemporary art display 20th- and 21st-century artworks. The galleries in the sector must be at least three years old and apply with their overall program, while also outlining their concept for a booth at the show.
Edition represents an exclusive selection of the leading publishers of editioned works, exhibiting the results of their collaborations with renowned international artists. Galleries must be at least three years old.
Nova focuses on recent artistic production. The booth may feature works from either one, two or three artists represented by the gallery. It often features never-before-seen pieces fresh from the artist’s studio and strong juxtapositions. The works displayed must have been created during the years 2011, 2012 or 2013. The sector is open to galleries that have been in existence for two or more years.
Positions allows curators, critics, and collectors to discover ambitious new talents by providing a platform for a single artist to present one major project. Proposals must comprise only a single project but may include one or more pieces from the same artist. Positions has no minimum age limit for the galleries applying.
Application forms outlining the procedures and relevant costs for each of these sectors may be downloaded from artbasel.com/miamibeachapplications.
The application deadline for all sectors is March 18, 2013.
