2017 Art Basel

December 2017

The first part of December every year is very special for Turner and his love of art. Each year Turner and his family soak up the sights of Art Basel Miami Beach to charge the creative spirit and help support the arts on a grander global scale.

Founded in 1970 by gallerists from Basel, Art Basel today stages the world's premier art shows for modern and contemporary art, sited in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong. Defined by its host city and region, each show is unique, which is reflected in its participating galleries, artworks presented, and the content of parallel programming produced in collaboration with local institutions for each edition. Across the five show days, the fair attracted an attendance of over 82,000, including influential collectors, directors, curators, trustees and patrons of leading international museums and institutions
