Today Art Basel announced the 269 leading international galleries selected for its 2019 edition in Miami Beach this December. As the premier art fair of the Americas, more than half of the exhibitors have exhibition spaces in North and South America, providing a unique overview of the art scenes within the region. 13 galleries from the Americas are participating in the fair for the first time: Barro Arte Contemporáneo from Buenos Aires; Document, moniquemeloche, and Mariane Ibrahim Gallery from Chicago; M+B and Parker Gallery from Los Angeles; Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, Company Gallery and Karma from New York; Galería Agustina Ferreyra from Mexico City; Central Fine from Miami Beach; Cooper Cole from Toronto; and Catriona Jeffries from Vancouver.
Given the fair's global focus, the list of exhibitors includes galleries from 33 countries and territories spanning five continents, with a particularly strong lineup of galleries and artists from Asia. New entries to the fair from the region include 10 Chancery Lane Gallery from Hong Kong, Magician Space from Beijing, and ROH Projects from Jakarta, while Hanart TZ Gallery from Hong Kong participates for the first time in the Galleries sector. In addition, Taka Ishii Gallery from Tokyo and Edouard Malingue Gallery with exhibition spaces in Hong Kong and Shanghai both return to the fair after a hiatus.
The show's comprehensive narrative goes beyond its geographical breadth. Leading experts in Modern and historical works such as Acquavella Galleries, Landau Fine Art and Mary-Anne Martin Fine Art are joined by a new generation of art galleries including Clearing, Galeria Jaqueline Martins, and Société, allowing the show to span over a century of art history. Additionally, Meridians will provide a new platform for galleries and their artists to show work that pushes the boundaries of the traditional art fair layout. Curated by Magalí Arriola, Director of Museo Tamayo, the sector will be staged in the new Grand Ballroom of the MBCC, a column-less exhibition space of almost 6,000 square meters (60,000 square feet) that is directly connected to the exhibition halls.
The main sector of the show features 203 of the world's leading galleries presenting the highest quality of painting, sculpture, drawings, installation, photography, video, and digital works. As debuted at its Basel fair this past June, Art Basel is also applying a sliding-scale pricing model in Miami Beach this December and welcomes 14 influential galleries to the main sector for the first time: Peter Blum Gallery, Ceysson & Bénétière, Clearing, Hanart TZ Gallery, High Art, hunt kastner, Gaga, Catriona Jeffries, Karma,Maisterravalbuena, Galeria Jaqueline Martins, Revolver Galería, Tyler Rollins Fine Art, Société. In addition, five galleries – Luciana Brito Galeria, Taka Ishii Gallery, Galeria Leme, Roberts Project and Galleria Christian Stein – are returning to Galleries after a hiatus.
