In its 11th year, Art Basel Miami Beach attracts an estimated 50,000 annual visitors and showcases too many galleries to count. While many of the exhibitors focus on Abstract Expressionism and other genres that echo the 20th century avant-garde movement, we rounded up some preview highlights catered to our new contemporary art tastes. Kehinde Wiley (featured in our current print issue) will be represented in the fair by Stephen Friedman Gallery and Sean Kelly Gallery, the former based in London and the latter in New York. Tomio Koyama Gallery brings the Japanese Pop Surrealist work of Hideaki Kawashima while Elliott Hundley remixes vintage advertisements for Andrea Rosen Gallery from New York. Take a look at our preview below and stay tuned for updates from the fairs when Hi-Fructose hits Miami next week.
