For its eighth edition, Design Miami/ Basel returns with an enhanced gallery selection, showing museum-quality works spanning five centuries of design, accompanied by a rich cultural programming of site-specific commissions, performances, awards and talks. All these will be presented in Design Miami/ Basel’s new Herzog & de Meuron designed home.
The June 2013 edition of Design Miami/ Basel will see a significant number of returning galleries and first-time exhibitors alike, all of which represent the world’s leading galleries specializing in collectible design. An international roster of nearly fifty historic and contemporary galleries from thirteen countries will be shown, alongside the fair’s cutting edge cultural programming, in Hall 1 Süd, part of the new permanent exhibition hall in Basel’s Messe. The fair will be held June 11-16.
Founded in 2005, Design Miami/ is the only fair dedicated to twentieth and twenty-first century collectible design from Europe, the United States, Asia, Africa and the Middle-East, unparalleled in its maturity while maintaining a unique ability to track top-quality emerging and blue-chip work, reflective of the fair’s rigorous proposal-based selection process.
