From December 6 through 9, Miami Beach, Florida, will host the 11th edition of Art Basel, the most prestigious art show in the Americas. More than 260 leading galleries from North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa will take part, showcasing works by more than 2,000 artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.

The exhibiting galleries are among the world's most respected art dealers, offering exceptional pieces by both renowned artists and cutting-edge newcomers. Special exhibition sections feature young galleries, performance art, public art projects and video art. The show will be a vital source for art lovers, allowing them to both discover new developments in contemporary art and experience rare museum-caliber artworks.

In addition to the official events of Art Basel in Miami, there are loads of parties going on throughout the city, including a Kurt Cobain tribute at Gusman Center for the Performing Arts on December 6 that includes an appearance by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore and a 15 minute live dance performance based on the "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video. More info is here.

Other music artists playing shows during or around Art Basel include Chromatics, Prince Rama, Nicolas Jaar, Purity Ring, Twin Shadow, Brenmar, Animal Collective, Flying Lotus, Dan Deacon, Hundred Waters, ITAL and Jacuzzi Boys. Paper Mag has a pretty good guide to some of it.

Some of those artists were set to play the UR1 Festival which was to run concurrent with Art Basel but was cancelled.

If you're going to Miami, we'd like to point out that BrooklynVegan photographer Dana (distortion) Yavin will be showing more than 26 prints of her mostly-BrooklynVegan concert photography (including Morrissey, Iggy Pop, Pearl Jam, Fiona Apple, Snoop Dogg, Madonna and more) in two different galleries, LMNT and OVERTURE, from December 4 - 9. A flyer for the show below has more details.

Screaming Females

We at BrooklynVegan are excited to announce the opening of a gallery show called '480 Pixels - An Exhibition of BrooklynVegan's Music Photography,' which will feature work by BV photographers. The gallery opens at 92YTribeca on August 16 and runs through September 6, and is free to the public. For many of these photos, the gallery will be the first time that they have been publicly displayed at a size larger than 480 pixels, the standard width for photos on BV.

On the opening day, there will be a free opening reception at 6:30 PM and a BV-presented show on the 92YTribeca mainstage at 8 PM with Screaming Females, Hunters, and Heliotropes. Tickets for the show are on sale now.

The list of BV photographers whose work will be on display at the exhibition is below. Marissa Paternoster of Screaming Females will also be showing a few pieces of her artwork at the exhibition.

The show is one of many scheduled for Screaming Females, who come to Brooklyn this summer for Riot Fest Brooklyn which goes down at Williamsburg Park on September 8. They also play C.L.I.T. Fest in NJ this weekend. All of their dates are listed below.
