ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH - 1 December through 4 December

It is almost Miami Art Week time! Vroom& Varossieau is more than excited for this year’s events at Art Basel. So we will give you all the updates from Florida on our news page.

Fifteen years after Switzerland’s Art Basel launched a satellite event in the New World, Art Basel Miami Beach—and the surrounding, citywide craziness known collectively as Miami Art Week—has become a glittering magnet for collectors, gallerists, artists and industry professionals from around the globe. 

This edition's Public Sector curator Nicholas Baume as chosen ‘Ground Control’ as the main theme of his curatorial practice, inspired by David Bowie, the legendary rock star who passed away earlier this year. Under this theme, the Public sector will examine ways in which artists invent and imagine new kinds of space: physical, social and psychic. Interpreting ‘Ground Control’ literally, the works will invite viewers into new relationships with familiar surroundings and reframe Collins Park into a site for transformational experiences with contemporary art.  

Especially interesting for Street Art aficionados is the world famous Wynwood area of the city, famed for it’s many murals (The Wynwood Walls) and widely known as the Urban and Street Art hub of Miami. Expect to be wowed as many of the most famous and excellent artist will colide here at numerous events at gallerys, creative spaces, bars and clubs. 

With miles of sandy beaches dotted with classic Art Deco architecture, world-class art museums, and a glittering nightlife, Miami Beach ranks among America’s most iconic cities. During Art Basel, it embraces the art world with all the special exhibitions at museums and galleries across the city, transforming the week into a dense and dynamic cultural event.  

Vroom& Varossieau will bring you the latest and greatest from Miami Art Week 2016, on our website and Instagram!
