The New York Times calls the show “a mandatory stop for any self-respecting art player”, while the Financial Times says “Art Basel Miami Beach has established itself as a magnet for contemporary art dealers and collectors from around the world.”Art Basel Miami Beach is currently accepting applications to three sectors: Art Galleries, Art Nova, and Art Positions. Galleries for each sector will be selected by the Art Basel Miami Beach Selection Committee.

Art Galleries is the main exhibition sector of Art Basel Miami Beach, where leading art galleries for modern and contemporary art display 20th- and 21st-century artworks. The galleries in the sector must be more than three years old and apply with their overall program, while also outlining their concept for a booth at the show. Art Nova focuses on recent artistic production, so the works displayed must have been created during the years 2010, 2011 or 2012. The booth may feature works from either two or three artists represented by the gallery, i.e. solo shows are no longer permitted in this sector. The sector is open to galleries that have been in existence for two or more years.Art Positions is for galleries presenting young artists with solo projects. Art Positions has no minimum age limit for the galleries applying. Proposals must comprise a single project—but may include several distinct pieces—from an artist represented by the gallery.
