Art Basel to Take Place at Miami Beach Convention Center for Five More Years

The organizers of Art Basel have signed a contract with the city of Miami, Florida, that will allow the fair to take place at the city’s convention center for another five years, reports Ciara LaVelle of the Miami New Times. The contact starts in 2019 and gives the fair exclusive rights to the venue until 2023, including its new meeting spaces and ballroom. The center, in return, will provide direct access to the second-floor ballroom and various exhibition spaces via escalators and elevators.
