MIAMI, FLA. – The premiere of Art Basel Miami Beach will be postponed for one year. The current situation in the United States forces the show management to refrain from carrying out the International Art Show, originally scheduled for December 13-16, now set for December 5-8, 2002.
The show management decided that the premiere of Art Basel Miami Beach must be postponed due to the unpredictable prolongation of the unsafe circumstances in the United States since the September 11 terrorist attacks, warnings of potential attacks in the future, the anthrax incidents, and the state of war.
The related dangers and increased difficulties in air travel as well as goods, traffic and insurance render it impossible to stage the international top event in Miami Beach this coming December.
The show management sincerely regrets having to postpone the highly successfully initiated event six weeks before its realization. Responsibility and concern, however, regarding the safety and well-being of clients and partners from around the globe (exhibitors, visitors, sponsors, media representatives and cultural institutions) necessitated this measure.
