2022 Art Basel Miami Beach

December 4, 2022

Every year since the 1970s, the city of Miami Beach has hosted the Art Basel Show, now hosted at the Miami Beach Convention Center. This year people flock to see the Galleries, Meridians, Nova, Positions, Survey, Editions, Kabinett, Magazines, Conversations, and to meet the Meridians Curator Magali Arriola. The Art Basel show comes from humble beginnings with a rich history, stating on their website, “Basel gallerists Ernst Beyeler, Trudl Bruckner, and Balz Hilt create an international art fair that proves to be a success from the start. More than 16,000 visitors attend the inaugural show to see 90 galleries and 30 publishers from 10 countries.” Art Basel is celebrating its 20th year in Miami Beach, and buoyant sales mark its largest edition. The event had its most robust attendance yet, with 76,000+ attendees from international collectors and institutions from over 88 countries.

On the beach, guests were able to view the displays of Prada, Ruinart Beach Lounge and X Pilar Zeta by W Hotels, Faena Art X Random International, and Random International Living room. At the Prada Paradoxe pop-up, people were able to view intricate designs involving Prada couture. Visiting the Ruinart Beach Lounge and X Pilar Zeta by W Hotels, guests were able to view interactive art while enjoying beverages with others in the seated areas. Throughout the Random International Livingroom, the public may enjoy an interactive light maze experience that lets maze-goers out onto the beach when they are finished.

Opening this year’s Art Basel for Miami 2022, The invitation-only preview began on November 29 through November 30, 2022. The show was open to the public from December 1, 2022, through December 4, 2022. According to The Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, there were 283 galleries from 38 countries and 35 speakers across 9 panels, making Art Basel Miami 2022 the “largest show to date.”

During the week of Art Basel in Miami 2022, the delivery drivers of Reliable couriers were able to pick up and drop off every delivery on time successfully. Despite the many obstacles our drivers had to face, such as traffic, late flights or pick-up times, and assisting with loading and unloading fragile art that required more time to transport than first thought, our drivers were still on time 100 percent of the time for this year’s Art Basel show.

The Art Basel show has nearly doubled in size and requires many hours of manpower to set up and put together. This is why since 2004, Reliable couriers have been helping artists to move their works from the airport, hotel, boat, etc., to the Miami Beach Convention Center and back home again. Our couriers have access to a fleet of vehicles ranging from sedans and cargo vans to box trucks with lift gates, accommodating any work that needs to be delivered or transported during the Art Basel show.
