After Skipping 2020 Due to COVID, Art Basel Miami Beach Is Returning on Dec. 2, Carefully

Reinforcing its position as the premier art fair of the Americas, Art Basel returns for a full-scale, in-person show in Miami Beach this December, featuring a lineup of over 250 leading galleries from 36 countries and territories, with 43 galleries joining the fair for the first time. With more than half of its participating exhibitors having spaces in the Americas, the fair will present a unique overview of artists, galleries, and key trends from the region, with premier works across all media.

Art Basel Live, the fair’s multichannel digital initiative, will amplify gallery presentations to broader audiences worldwide. Art Basel, whose Lead Partner is UBS, will take place from December 2 to December 4, 2021 at the Miami Beach Convention Center (MBCC).

The Design Miami furniture fair is also returning. Taking place concurrently to the Art Basel fairs in Miami Beach and Basel, Design Miami is the premier venue for collecting, exhibiting, discussing, and creating collectible design. In its 17th edition this year, Design Miami will take place from December 1 to December 5, adjacent to the MBCC (at Meridian Avenue and 19th Street).

Museums and private collections will feature special programming during the fair, including the Bass, the Perez Art Museum (PAMM), the Wolfsonian and the Rubell Museum.

The biggest art fair in the world isn’t messing around, COVID-wise: Attendees aged 12 and over must provide proof of a negative lab-administered COVID-19 test in order to gain access to Art Basel Miami Beach. Acceptable test results include either: a negative lab-administered PCR test result within 72 hours, or a negative lab-administered antigen test result within 48 hours.

Alternatively, visitors may opt to voluntarily provide proof of completed COVID-19 vaccination, or proof of recent (within 90 days) recovery from COVID-19 issued by a board-certified physician or medical treatment facility.

In addition, in compliance with the City of Miami Beach and the Miami Beach Convention Center’s (MBCC) safety regulations, wearing a mask covering the mouth and nose will be mandatory inside the venue for anyone age 2 and older, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
