Art Basel in Miami Beach

Work by some 4,000 artists is on view this year at Art Basel in Miami Beach, from the expected roster of blue-chip stars to the young artists of the Nova and Positions sectors.

As day two closed out, we polled a number of the art world’s top collectors, artists, and museum curators—Massimiliano Gioni to Jorge M. Pérez—to sift through the selection. As has been the case throughout 2015, those highlights trend away from the twentysomething MFA grads that dominated the market discourse for several years past, with Swiss Institute director Simon Castets citing the discovery of a 1965 piece by Roy Lichtenstein as “hands down” his favorite from the fair. (The work, from Lichtenstein’s pink seascape series, is surprisingly reminiscent of recent trends we’ve seen in painting.) “That’s one thing that art fairs are great for; you can get surprised,” said Castets. The dozen artists to watch highlighted below certainly fit that bill.
