11 Must-See Museum Shows During Art Basel Miami Beach, From a Didier William Retrospective to the First U.S. Exhibition of Michel Majerus
There's even more art to see beyond the fairs.
Art week in Miami is always a scene, with collectors, artists, and gallerists descending on the city for a few days. But, there is a wealth of art to see beyond the tents. Here are 11 institutional shows you don’t want to miss.
1. “Leandro Erlich: Liminal” at the Pérez Art Museum Miami
PAMM is located at 1103 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami.
2. “Alexandre Diop: 2022 Artist-in-Residence” at the Rubell Museum
It’s no secret that Don and Mera Rubell have the Midas touch. The residency program at the couple’s Miami-based museum is a serious coup for any young artist, and it’s no exception for Alexandre Diop. The Senegalese-Franco artist uses everyday found materials in the spirit of Arte Povera to lend his portraits a textural complexity.

3. “In the Mind’s Eye: Landscapes of Cuba” at the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum
This wide-ranging exhibition examines how both U.S. and Cuban artists engaged with the landscape of Cuba, and reflected its social, economic, political, and ideological shifts in their artwork.
