4 December 2013
From 4 to 8 December 2013, Art Basel Miami Beach presents a premier program of films by and about artists, selected by David Gryn, Director of London's Artprojx. Gryn's 2013 program presents over 70 film and video works drawn from the show's participating galleries, including works by gallery artists Yinka Shonibare MBE, David Shrigley and Kehinde Wiley. 

The third edition of David Gryn's selection for Art Basel's Miami Beach show, whose Lead Partner is UBS, explores the collaborative creative process via intersections between visual artists, composers, musicians, choreographers, dancers and animators. Framed within eight distinct screening programs, the program highlights an international selection of emerging and established artists. The program includes Kehinde Wiley's 'World Stage: Jamaica' (2013), David Shrigley's 'New Friends' (2006) and a selection of works by Yinka Shonibare MBE exploring the interface between music and dance.

Outdoor screenings of the program take place at SoundScape Park on the 7,000-square- foot outdoor projection wall of the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center from December 4 to December 7. Admission to Film at SoundScape Park is free. Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs. A program that includes nine additional films will be presented within five viewing pods inside the Miami Beach Convention Center.
