Art Basel Miami Beach powerfully represents the phenomenal expansion of contemporary art fairs since they began in 1967. While the first of the modern fairs was a small, cooperative venture, today’s international art fairs profoundly influence cultural tourism and the business of buying and selling contemporary art. “Art Basel Miami Beach and the Culture of the Art Fair” looks at the artists and the galleries as they have been, as they are at this year’s ABMB, and as they are likely to be in the future.

Laura Knott develops and manages exhibitions at the MIT Museum and teaches “Money and Ethics in the Contemporary Art World” at Tufts University. She holds a Master’s degree from MIT in Visual Studies. Ms. Knott’s career as an artist includes presentations at the documenta exhibition, online, and on public television. She is the editor of a book about Sky Art and the author of articles about contemporary art and museum practice.Image
