The 17th edition of Art Basel in Miami Beach closed on Sunday, December 9, 2018, amid reports of significant sales to private collections and institutions by galleries across all sectors of the market. With the renovation of the Miami Beach Convention Center (MBCC) completed for this year’s fair, visitors enjoyed the more spacious layout and design of the show. This years edition featured 268 premier galleries from 35 countries with over 83,000 visitors across five days.

The first large-scale performative installation onsite was presented in the newly designed Grand Ballroom: Abraham Cruzvillegas’ ‘Autorreconstrucción: To Insist, to Insist, to Insist…’.  According to Artsy, many galleries in the Nova sector (young galleries) and the Positions sector (solo exhibitions), reported strong sales. Thierry Goldberg Gallery for example, sold out its solo booth of work by Tschabalala Self priced between $10,000 and $60,000, which included a sale destined to the Art Institute of Chicago. 

The Art Basel team put together this video below of highlights from 2018.
