Miami Art Week is fast approaching, and collectors, dealers, and art enthusiasts are readying their wallets, presentations, and schedules. World-renowned and emerging fairs will draw the biggest names in contemporary art and design to the sandy beaches, palm tree–lined streets, and Art Deco hotels for which Miami is famous.
The main events of the week—Art Basel in Miami Beach, New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA), Untitled Art, Design Miami/, Scope, and Art Miami—present ideal opportunities to discover new artists and build your collection, at a variety of price points. While Miami truly has something for everyone, this curated selection of fair highlights will help guide your week, complete with booth locations for each exhibitor mentioned below.

As the cornerstone of Miami Art Week, Art Basel in Miami Beach draws the largest crowds and brings out works by the most coveted names in modern and contemporary art. Exhibitors range from rising galleries to blue-chip dealers at the top of the art market. The 2022 fair marks the 20th anniversary of Art Basel in Miami Beach, and at a size of 282 galleries, it is the biggest edition yet. To reflect on the fair’s 20 years in Miami Beach, Art Basel’s Conversations program will include a panel with major collectors who have helped support the city’s growing art ecosystem: Carlos and Rosa de la Cruz, Craig Robins, and Martin Margulies.
In addition to showing these gallery exhibitors, Art Basel will present a selection of large-scale and immersive works in its Meridians section, curated by Magalí Arriola. P.P.O.W will show a monumental, 26-foot-long, handwoven tapestry by Erin M. Riley. It depicts intimate, psychological, and raw imagery that thematizes issues of sexual violence, trauma, and the lived experience of being a woman.
Don’t miss the Editions section, which will feature a look at leading publishers of prints and multiples. A highlight will be the legendary Los Angeles–based publisher Gemini G.E.L. (C12), which will present new works by some of its frequent collaborators. Two incredible editions by Julie Mehretu will be on view: 10-panel, 50-plate etching/aquatints measuring nearly 15 feet long.
