The annual art extravaganza, Art Basel, which is one of the most exalted art events in the world held in Miami Beach released a statement on their website Wednesday, September 2nd that it is now cancelled for 2020.

The international art fair was originally scheduled to take place this year from December 3rd to the 6th at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Art Basel had to also cancel their sibling Art Basel events which include the flagship location in Basel, Switzerland in June as well as Art Basel Hong Kong, which was scheduled this past March. This is first year in decades the art fair has had to cancel.

"We thank everyone who shared their perspectives and insights with us over the past months and weeks and look forward to returning to Miami Beach next year to deliver a successful show."

Noah Horowitz, Art Basel Director Americas

The contemporary art expo remains committed to utilizing digital initiatives by hosting upcoming shows held in Hong Kong, Miami Beach, and Basel on online viewing rooms which have been announced to show in the fall. One viewing room entitled ‘OVR:2020’ will feature artwork made during 2020 will be running from September 23rd to 26th and another viewing room, ‘OVR: 20c’, will feature artwork created between 1900 and 1999 on October 28th to the 31st.

Coincidentally, our first Season 2 episode of Destination Adventure: The Adventure Continues features a walk around with our very own host, Charles Moss, where he views the exhibits, interviews vendors, and engages with art goers alike during the art fair which was held in the art district of Wynwood, in downtown Miami just last year.
