Can't-Miss Miami Art Week 2023 Events

Museums, private collections, arts organizations, galleries, and artist studios open their doors once again for Miami Art Week, presenting special installations, exhibitions, workshops, talks, and creative programming. Art Basel may be the star of the week, but countless satellite shows and parties blanket the city alongside the international art fair every December. Here’s a quick guide to get you ready for Miami Art Week 2023, taking place Dec. 4 - 10.


Miami Art Week Parties

Kick off the most thrilling week of the year with The Sagamore Hotel. The Sagamore’s ambitious and innovative art program always launches Miami into Art Week with a stacked lineup of exciting programming.

Nolcha Shows presents an immersive, full day experience on Dec. 7 on The Sagamore’s Garden Deck. The premier event for Bitcoin builders, artists, collectors, and enthusiasts during Art Basel brings together leading voices from the digital art ecosystem. There’s keynotes and panels featuring leading Bitcoin Ordinals industry experts, an opportunity to connect with powerful communities, founders, VCs, artists, and collectors, and an epic afterparty planned with rare and exotic acts, live music, and entertainment. Get your tickets to this important event and stay just steps from the party when you book your South Beach stay with us here at The Sagamore.


Then there’s the 22nd Iconic Sagamore Brunch, with this year’s theme The Digital Canvas: Unleashing AI in Art. The garden deck, poolside brunch runs from 9 a.m - 1 p.m. on Dec. 9, with live art painting, mixology stations, mural reveals, live industry panelists, and musical performances by the South Florida Symphony. This event always sells out, so secure your Sagamore Brunch tickets today.

Stay up to date with our Events Calendar and watch for The Sagamore’s official Art Week schedule, coming soon.

Art Basel Miami

The world’s premier art show returns to the Miami Beach Convention Center for three days of public viewing (Dec. 8 - 10). Galleries from around the world showcase paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, films, and editioned works from over 4,000 art masters and emerging stars at Art Basel Miami. Here’s everything you need to know about Art Basel 2023 as well as a helpful art fair survival guide so you don’t miss a beat.

Design Miami

If you like your art “functional” (art designed to serve a purpose, with an aesthetic in mind) check out Design Miami. Adjacent to the Miami Beach Convention Center and only a short walk from Art Basel, the design fair showcases museum-quality exhibitions of twentieth and twenty-first century furniture, lighting, and ‘objets d’art’ from the world’s top emerging and established designers and architects. Public dates run Dec. 6 - 10.

Miami Art Week Museum Special Exhibitions

Be sure to support your local museums during Art Week. Pérez Art Museum Miami has two anticipated exhibitions slated to open the first week of December: Perceptual Motion, an exploration of technological change, mass media, and the universality of moving images in contemporary art; and Gary Simmons: Public Enemy, the first comprehensive career survey of the work of the multidisciplinary Los Angeles-based artist, whose groundbreaking works have played a key role in situating questions of race, class, and gender identity at the center of contemporary art discourse.

In Miami Beach, The Bass is premiering four new exhibitions in time for Miami Art Week 2023: Hernan Bas: The Conceptualists, an exhibition of paintings from the Miami-based artist that explore conceptual art as a permissive realm for creative behavior and an inviting space for queerness; Anne Duk Hee Jordan: I Will Always Weather With You, a new large-scale multisensory exhibition from the Berlin-based artist that uses technology to examine the perseverance of life on Earth against the increasing challenges of climate change; Etel Adnan: Painting Into Space, a monumental wall mural set alongside additional works by the Lebanese-born artist; and Social Assembly: Welcome to the Museum, which invites you to rethink how we interact with and learn from art - and each other - with re-envisioned museum social spaces and activities that meld art, design and architecture.
