Art Basel Miami Beach Art Week – Rizz Guide 2023 

Art Basel Miami Beach

Artlyst has produced an easy-to-use Guide to all the essentials that Art Basel Miami Week has to offer. Although there are a lot of impenetrable VIP-only events and dinners happening, there are several really good open-to-the-public events, concerts, parties, and pop-ups for everyone.

As the rhythmic heartbeat of ABMB commences, the City’s vibrant pulse reverberates through the atmosphere, disrupting the customary dialogue centred around artists’ practices, price tags, museum acquisitions, and forthcoming exhibitions. “We’ve completed the circuit,” murmurs an eager anticipation as leaders of the art world, accompanied by luminaries from the realms of fashion, culinary arts, luxury brands, celebrities, and nocturnal revellers, descend upon the City for the extravagant spectacle that is Miami Art Week.

We will be adding to this coverage over the week so make sure you come back for updates.

This annual convergence unfurls as a compelling panorama—a week-long immersion in a sensory feast that transcends the conventional boundaries of the art scene. Beyond the mere perusal of exhibits and discourse on brushstrokes, it represents an exploration of the interplay of culture. In this jubilation, Art effortlessly intertwines with the rich fabric of Miami’s eclectic lifestyle.

Since last year’s Art Week retreated into memory, Miami has undergone a remarkable metamorphosis. The City has warmly embraced high-profile residents, with luminaries such as Jeff Bezos, Shakira, and Lionel Messi gracing its shores. The culinary landscape has blossomed into a gastronomic haven, boasting 11 Michelin-rated restaurants with the allure of further culinary escapades awaiting the palates of the curious.

The city’s cultural tapestry has intricately woven itself into a refined tableau, leaving an indelible mark on the map of global artistic and aesthetic pursuits. Miami’s economic vibrancy persists, drawing both residents and visitors like moths to a flame, and the City’s allure will be splendidly illuminated during the upcoming Art Week.

Get ready to be wowed as Miami sheds its former skin, unveiling a throbbing metropolis where Art, culture, and luxury seamlessly converge in a spectacle that transcends conventional norms. Miami Art Week beckons in the mesmerising ballet of lights and colours, promising an immersive experience that transcends the ordinary and plunges attendees into the extraordinary.

Craig Robins, the visionary entrepreneur and real estate developer 


MDD recently unveiled a permanent installation by British Artist and Designer Samuel Ross. Under the umbrella of his industrial design studio SR_A, three different bench designs are placed throughout the dynamic landscape of MDD’s public spaces and pedestrian walkways, each a testament to Ross’ profound exploration of functionality and service in communal areas.

Samuel Ross benches are located in the Miami Design District.



MDD has awarded designer Lara Bohinc the 2023 Miami Design District Annual Design Commission.


Miami Design District has awarded designer Lara Bohinc the 2023 Miami Design District Annual Design Commission. ‘Utopia’ spans four installations featuring irregular, bulbous forms reminiscent of growing cellular organisms.

The Craig Robins Collection in Miami comprises over 1,300 pieces of contemporary Art and innovative 

The Craig Robins Collection in Miami comprises over 1,300 pieces of contemporary Art and innovative design and is exhibited within the Dacra headquarters in the Miami Design District. This year’s rehanging of the collection is titled “A Train of Thoughts”, focusing on two core subgroups of the collection’s holdings: figuration and conceptualism. The exhibition highlights a collecting history that has favoured a taste for the abject and hyperbolic figurative image in tandem with the self-reflexive, institutional critique of Art based on ideas. This seemingly incompatible pair yields unexpected dialogues.

Location: DACRA Headquarters, 3841 NE 2nd Ave., Miami, FL 33137

Dates: December 6 – 8

Parley for the Oceans x Art Basel Miami Beach

Art Basel and Parley for the Oceans are announcing their collaboration at Art Basel Miami Beach this year, calling for support to address the devastating impacts of climate change, plastic pollution, and biodiversity loss on marine ecosystems and coastal communities. This year will mark the beginning of a long-term partnership between the non-profit and the fair, who together aim to inspire long-term positive change for our ecosystem and the protection of the oceans. Together, they will launch Art for the Oceans, a fundraising initiative that will see Parley’s Global Cleanup Network collect 1 lb of plastic for every $1 donated through the program. 


Parley’s space at the fair will display data regarding the oceans’ beauty and fragility and will introduce its many artist collaborations with artists including Ed RuschaJenny HolzerKatharina GrossePipilotti Rist, and Doug Aitken. Parley will also present a series of works in Collins Park by artist Julian Schnabel titled ‘Ocean.Climate.Life.’



Forms will be the eighth annual group exhibition presented jointly by Jeffrey Deitch and Gagosian during Miami Art Week and will be on view in the City’s design district. The dominant narrative of Modern Art has focused mainly on stylistic shifts between binary oppositions: from figuration to abstraction and back again. Playing on this history, the works included in Forms highlight, acknowledge, and challenge the pathway between abstraction and figuration with surrogates for and references to the symbolic world.

Location: 35 N.E. 40th St., Miami, FL 33137

Dates: December 5 – 10

Gimme Shelter

At the Historic Hampton House features work from iconic Black artists like Nick Cave and Carrie Mae Weems, plus other programming. 11:00 AM To 06:00 PM



French artist J.R. debuts his newest mural, ‘The Chronicles of Miami.’ Inspired by Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, the piece is part of J.R.’s ambitious Chronicles series that imagines how an entire city can be represented through Art. To create the work, J.R. and his travelling studio visited ten different neighbourhoods in Miami, inviting anyone who passed by to be photographed and have a story recorded. The result is an epic, highly realistic composition that captures the 1,048 people who comprise this ever-changing coastal City. Participants’ voices and stories are linked to their portraits through the augmented reality app “J.R.: murals,” offering an immersive exploration of Miami’s diverse culture and history.

Location: Jungle Plaza, 3801 NE 1st Ave., Miami, FL 33137


Stardust is a ten-foot-tall structure spanning 217 square feet. Ideated by design studio Flare, the structure marks the first of a series of collectable editions of bespoke pavilions inspired by the architectural tradition of XVII Century “Follies.” Upon entering, Stardust envelopes those inside into a dance of light and reflection. A mirrored ceiling and glass walls flirt with visitors’ bodies, while a marble floor elegantly reflects the sounds of the interior atmosphere. Natural light, diffused by the surrounding landscape, softly penetrates the transparent glass walls, animating the space. Stardust and its complementing furniture pieces (Amaranta and Ana & Chiara), also designed and created by Flare for the Design District, will be displayed and open to the public in November 2023.

Location: 95 N.E. 40th St., Miami, FL 33137

In collaboration with Swampspace Gallery in Miami’s Design District, Spinello Projects proudly presents VALLE DE LÁGRIMAS (1987), a montage of ten lurid canvases. The installation of paintings is a meditation on popular culture and a tribute to Mexican fotonovelas of the 1970s. Sanchez rendered the monumental work before succumbing to AIDS in 1990. Swampspace presents this seminal work in partnership with Spinello Projects’ series of solo exhibitions and projects entitled GAY ERA.

Valle De Lágrimas was painted by the late Cuban-American painter Aldolfo Rene Sanchez.


GAY ERA is a collection of five solo shows and projects, bringing together a selection of artists whose works embody the rich tapestry of queer experiences, narratives, and artistic expressions.

‘Reclining Mermaid’ is a site-specific billboard by Elliot & Erick Jiménez, first generation … [+]


‘Reclining Mermaid’ is a site-specific billboard by Elliot & Erick Jiménez, a first-generation Cuban-American twin photo duo. The work is a portrait of Yemaya, the deity syncretised with our Lady of Regla in Cuba and ruler of the seas — her shimmering dress resembling the refraction of the ocean’s surface. The figure is mainly obscured except for her eyes, a customary feature within Elliot & Erick’s artwork; the eyes remaining present in the image serve as posterity to the history of Cuba’s colonialism and blending of Spanish and West African traditions. Reclining Mermaid is part of “Southern Histories,” a series of large-scale works at culturally significant sites to commemorate under-recognised historical narratives connected to Miami’s roots in the American South, Latin America, and the Caribbean. This public work underscores the history of migration from the Caribbean and Latin America to Miami and how these cultures transformed the City’s urban fabric over the decades. Produced in collaboration with Spinello Projects and commissioned by Fringe Projects with support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Location: Corner of N.E. 2nd Ave. & 40 St., Miami, FL 33137

To celebrate the partnership the week of December 4, in honour of Miami Art Basel 2023, Typoe created a limited-edition “Typoe for RIMOWA” Miami sticker pack featuring sticker designs drawn from his art piece.

The Atiba Jefferson Skate Photography Retrospective at the Miami Design District. 


With a career spanning over 25 years, Atiba Jefferson is one of the most significant photographers of our Time. His unique style and generation-bridging presence in the world of sport, and explicitly skateboarding, has made him not only a witness to moments in skate history but an active participant in the making, sharing, and advancement of the culture. Organised by Architecture, the creative studio founded by the late Virgil Abloh, this exhibition is the most comprehensive survey of Jefferson’s skate photography —from his iconic images of legendary athletes to archival gems. Combined with insightful panel discussions with Atiba and some of his most frequent subjects and collaborators, this retrospective positions Atiba as a documentarian and an artist whose beautifully composed images and singular style resonate with the skate community and the uninitiated.
