The next edition of Art Basel in Miami Beach will take place from December 2 to December 5, 2021, with preview days on December 1 and December 2, 2021.
Given the ongoing impact of the pandemic, which spans from South Florida to other parts of the country and the world, limitations and uncertainty about the staging of large-scale events, international travel restrictions and bans, as well as quarantine regulations within the United States and internationally, Art Basel has no other option but to cancel the 2020 edition of Art Basel in Miami Beach. Art Basel in Miami Beach was scheduled to take place from December 3 to December 6, 2020 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
‘It is with great regret and disappointment that we announce the cancellation of our December show in Miami Beach, as we know how crucial our show is for our galleries, as well as for the greater Miami arts community and economy. 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,’ said Art Basel's Director Americas Noah Horowitz.
As the artworld continues to face momentous challenges, Art Basel remains firmly committed to supporting the global gallery community in the best way possible through its digital initiatives and by hosting its upcoming 2021 shows in Hong Kong, Basel, and Miami Beach. Two Online Viewing Rooms have been announced for the fall: ‘OVR:2020’, dedicated to artworks made during 2020 and running from September 23 to 26, and ‘OVR:20c’, which will feature works created between 1900 and 1999 and take place from October 28 to 31. These will be followed in December by further Online Viewing Rooms that will be open to all galleries accepted to the 2020 edition of Art Basel in Miami Beach. Further details will follow in the coming weeks.\

Emilie Arnoux’s paintings are brilliantly paired with American photographer Lynn Savarese. Together the two artists' work comes to life in vivid juxtaposition; the gentle flow of water in motion with the play of sunlight on its surface offers up endless summer reveries all the more apropos with dog-days now sadly coming to an end. This exhibition seeks to satisfy our intense longing for one last tryst in sun.
Arnoux hails from Normandy, France. From a young age, she became fascinated by the ocean and the laid back lifestyle surf-culture engenders. Her work captures the divine energy and the jubilation experienced when diving into cool water for relief from the hot-hot heat; tan bikini-clad bodies soaking up vitamin D by the pool while bobbing enticingly in bright-red inflatable rafts. Arnoux’s neo art-deco style is drenched in a certain Americana nostalgia, reminiscent of David Hockney and at times Toulouse-Lautrec. She reduces three-dimensional objects to flat geometric shapes that feel at once contemporary and modern, recalling beach-side postcards of the 1950s and 60s.
Savarese’s favorite subject, too, is water, in all of its manifestations from calm to turbulent; from gently lapping to crashing in frothy tumult. In her portrayals of water, she strives to evoke the ways in which this universal elixir uniquely soothes, excites, inspires, consoles, renews, delights, and awes. Savarese has traversed the globe to capture water’s beauty; from the Hamptons, the Adirondacks, and Martha's Vineyard, to Iceland, Australia, the Caribbean, Patagonia, Europe, and Japan. Her featured images focus on the mesmerizing ways in which water surfaces collaborate with intense summer light and serve as exquisite canvases for abstract artistic renderings. Savarese’s aquatic portraits offer a dynamic connection with Arnoux’s paintings of glimmering water, with each artist inviting or daring viewers to dive right in.
POOLSIDE resonates with a complex prism of sun-drenched hues; Savarese’s images are rich in cobalt blues, teals, and whites, while Arnoux’s vivid pastel color palette employs a range of saturated blues, greens, and oranges. The two artists’ intimate portrayals of water reflect a deep affinity, while retaining an inspired uniqueness. Together, the exquisite works illustrate in living color the exhilarating sensations of summertime. You can still feel the heat from the sun on your skin, the lovely relief from the weight of gravity that water provides, the subtle burn of chlorine from the pool, coconut flavors from thickly applied suntan lotion wafting on the balmy air, and the delicious taste of salt from the ocean on your chapped lips.
