Curated by David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions and London’s Artprojx, the show’s Film program included over 50 films and video works by and about artists drawn from the show's participating galleries. The program featured four nights of free screenings in SoundScape Park on the 7,000-square-foot outdoor projection wall of the Frank Gehry designed New World Center. Artists included Ida Applebroog, Anna Barham, Breda Beban, Janet Biggs, Sue de Beer, Rineke Dijkstra, Tracey Emin, Barbara Hammer, Shirazeh Houshiary, Jaki Irvine, Anna K.E. & Florian Meisenberg, Jumana Manna, Howardena Pindell, Cauleen Smith, Catherine Sullivan and Marnie Weber. First-time curator Marian Masone, Senior Programing Advisor, Film Society of Lincoln Center, New York, selected the feature film: ‘Troublemakers – The Story of Land Art’ (2015) by filmmaker James Crump. The special screening took place at the Colony Theatre. The show’s daily talks program brought together leading figures from around the world and was attended by over 1,800 visitors. Conversations opened with the Premiere Artist Talk between Jenny Holzer and Trevor Paglen. Hans Ulrich Obrist led a panel on ‘The Artist as Slow Traveler’ with Shilpa Gupta, Paulo Nazareth, Stephen Shore, Shahzia Sikander and Samson Young. In ‘Should Art Schools Prepare Artists for the Art World?’, András Szántó discussed the role of an art school education with Sanford Biggers, Nicolas Bourriaud, Howard Singerman and Rosanne Somerson, while on Sunday, December 6, artist Nicole Eisenman spoke with her gallerist Susanne Vielmetter. The Salon program featured curator Stéphane Aquin in conversation about the Cuban art scene with the artist Carlos Garaicoa and art historian Iliana Cepero Amador. Additional panels considered the role of the archive, the ethics of art advising, audio and sound works, collecting as a political act, the evolution of contemporary art in Los Angeles, and new hybrid art spaces. Videos of all Conversations and Salon talks are available at artbasel.com/miamibeach/talks.

On Thursday, December 3, BMW and Art Basel announced the shortlist of artists nominated for the second BMW Art Journey, a juried award that enables emerging artists to go on a journey of creative discovery to a destination of their choice. The selected artists – Henning Fehr and Philipp Rühr at Galerie Max Mayer (Dusseldorf), Dan Bayles at François Ghebaly Gallery (Los Angeles) and Fritzia Irizar at Arredondo \ Arozarena (Mexico City) – will be developing proposals for the journey, with the winner to be announced in early 2016. The BMW Art Journey is open to artists from Positions and Discoveries, Art Basel's sectors for emerging artists in Miami Beach and Hong Kong. For more information, please visit: bmw-art-journey.com.

Beyond the exhibition halls, South Florida’s cultural institutions and museums once again enriched the week. Highlights included the first exhibition in the United States by the Cuban artist Gustavo Pérez Monzón at the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation; ‘Anselm Kiefer: Paintings, Sculpture and Installation’ and ‘Susan Philipsz: Immersive Sound Installation’ at The Margulies Collection at the Warehouse; ‘NO MAN'S LAND: Women Artists from the Collection’, an exhibition of women artists at the Rubell Family Collection; and ‘You've Got to Know the Rules... to Break Them’ at The de la Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space.

Furthering its long-standing engagement with the digital sphere, Art Basel launched an updated mobile app, which provides essential information regarding the show, including an interactive floorplan and a global artworks catalog of galleries participating at Art Basel’s shows.

Directly following the closing of the show, the Miami Beach Convention Center will undergo planned renovation. Phased around the upcoming Art Basel shows, the construction schedule ensures that the 2016 edition will take place with the same floorplan as this year, while the 2017 edition will feature a new floorplan. Renovations will be completed before Art Basel returns to Miami Beach in December 2018.
