The 15 must-see galleries at Art Basel Miami 2016

We’ve combed through this year’s list of exhibitors to bring you the most promising galleries at Art Basel Miami 2016

The highlight of Miami Beach’s year-end celebrations is no doubt Art Basel 2016. Now in its 15th year, the prominent North American art fair will showcase 269 exhibitors inside the 500,000 square-foot Miami Beach Convention Center. Between December 1 and 4, amid a flurry of Miami Art Week satellite fairs, parties and events, Basel attendees will have the opportunity to browse works exhibited by big-name artists and influential galleries across sections that include Nova (younger galleries), Survey (historical works) and Positions (made up of emerging artists). The list of participants is extensive, to say the least, but we’ve singled out the following outfits as the year’s must-see.

As far as Art Basel Miami Beach is concerned, Jasmin Tsou has officially made it: Her gallery, JTT, which grew from a small booth at 2012’s NADA fair to a full-fledged gallery in New York City, makes its Art Basel debut this year with a booth in the show’s Positions sector (made up just 16 curated solo booths). Tsou, who’s known for representing emerging artists, will showcase works by painter Becky Kolsrud.
