See who's in and who's out among the fair's 283 exhibitors.


Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB) today announced its 2022 exhibitor list for its 20th birthday edition in Miami. Some 283 galleries are slated to show in the fair’s main section, making it the largest edition in the city yet. 


The fair will feature 26 first time exhibitors, and overall the gallery selection shows it to be positioning itself as a global art market maker for the Americas, with half of this year’s galleries hailing from locations in North and South America. 


A stalwart of familiar faces with heavy presence in New York and L.A. are returning: Gagosian, Hauser & Wirth, Marian Goodman, Perrotin, Esther Schipper, and Thaddaeus Ropac, to name a few. But they will be joined by galleries like Rolf Art from Buenos Aires, Paulo Kuczynski from São Paulo, and José de la Mano from Madrid. 


“It is truly exciting to celebrate our 20-year presence in Miami Beach,” Marc Spiegler, Art Basel’s global director said in a press statement. “Over the last two decades our show has not only reinforced its pivotal position in the region—uniquely bridging the art scenes of North and South Americas, Europe, and beyond—but also played a galvanizing role in the city’s profound cultural transformation. The increasingly diverse range of galleries and artistic voices represented will make our show richer in discoveries than ever before.”


Standouts from this year’s Positions section, which focuses on solo exhibitions of emerging international artists, are new work by artists Tonia Nneji and Ishi Glinsky at newcomers And Now and Ishi Glinsky. 


The Nova portion of the fair, which focuses on new work by up to three artists, will welcome 11 galleries in 2022, including Yavuz Gallery showing the artist Pinaree Sanpitak, K Art showing Edgar Heap of Birds together alongside artists Erin Ggaadimitis, Ivalu Gingrich, and Robyn Tsinnajinnie.


Running from November 29 to December 3, the usual suspects of satellite fairs will also be present, including NADA, Design-Miami, and Untitled. 


Next month, Art Basel’s long awaited Paris debut will also be taking place. From October 20-23, the Grand Palais Éphémère will welcome 156 galleries for  Paris+ par Art Basel.


Art Basel’s Miami Beach edition takes place from November 29-30 (VIP and preview days), and will open to the public from December 1-3. See the full list of galleries taking part below.
