At the show
Art Basel's exhibition sectors are carefully defined to provide visitors the opportunity to see many different types of important works, from historical masterpieces to the work of the newest generation of artists.
Nicholas Baume, Director and Chief Curator of Public Art Fund, returns for his fourth year curating the show’s Public sector. Under the theme ‘Ground Control’, over 20 site-specific works by established and emerging artists spanning 10 countries will transform Miami Beach's Collins Park. As a large and diverse group exhibition, the installations are also about ground control in a literal sense. Works of art take over the park inviting us into new relationships with familiar terrain.
The Public sector of Art Basel is produced in collaboration with The Bass Museum of Art and supported by MGM Resorts Art & Culture.
SPECIAL FILM SCREENING
For her second year as Art Basel film curator, Marian Masone selected ‘Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back’ (2016) by Maura Axelrod, an original and highly entertaining portrait of the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan (b. 1960). The film presents a profile of the provocative and elusive art-world upstart, who launched his career with playful and subversive works that mocked the artistic establishment. The screening will take place at the Colony Theatre at 8.30pm on Friday, December 2 followed by a discussion with Axelrod and Masone. Entry is free, but seating is limited.
