The new Bass opens to the public in December 2016. Please visit the temporary bassX gallery at the Miami Beach Regional Library (227 22nd St.).
We present contemporary art to excite, challenge and educate.
WHO WE ARE
The Bass is Miami Beach’s contemporary art museum. Focusing on exhibitions of international contemporary art, The Bass presents mid-career and established artists reflecting the spirit and international character of Miami Beach. The Bass seeks to expand the interpretation of contemporary art by incorporating disciplines of contemporary culture, such as design, fashion and architecture, into the exhibition program.
Recognized for organizing the first solo museum exhibitions in the United States of international artists such as Erwin Wurm, The Bass also presents major exhibitions by influential artists such as El Anatsui, Isaac Julien, Eve Sussman and Piotr Uklański. The exhibition program encompasses a wide range of media and artistic points of view that bring new thought to the diverse cultural context of Miami Beach.
Central to the museum’s mission, The Bass maintains a vigorous education program for lifelong learning and visitors of all ages. The [email protected] education initiative uses art as a catalyst for creativity and positive growth, especially in the area of early childhood education. The active outreach program, Creativity in the Community, takes [email protected] offsite by engaging teachers and students in Miami-Dade County neighborhoods with the most challenged access to art. In March 2017, the museum’s Creativity Center opens as the largest art museum education facility in Miami-Dade.
