To figure out the best things to see at Art Basel Miami Beach, you must have a game plan. The popular art fair is broken down into distinct areas within the Miami Beach Convention Center: Art Galleries is where you’ll find the majority of the pieces; more than 200 contemporary galleries will exhibit paintings, photography and film from 2,000-plus artists. Art Nova offers a more intimate art-viewing experience; it features galleries representing two to three artists with new works created in the last few years. Art Positions highlights 16 galleries, each displaying a major art installation or project from one artist.
 
You’ll find art beyond the convention center’s doors as well. Two outdoor exhibits promise to be major draws. “Art Video” will include several installations, including Art Video Nights — a series that will screen 60 films and videos on the 7,000-square-foot projection wall of the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center. And Art Public will transform Collins Park into an outdoor exhibition space filled with performances and sculptures.
