The premier show for the world's best in contemporary and modern art, Art Basel begins its yearly Stateside residency on Thursday. With other annual shows in Basel, Switzerland and Hong Kong, each of the three shows possesses a unique personality and seeks to reflect the individual host city through gallery exhibitions, visual art installations, expert panel discussions, and more.

Both emerging talent and established artists are invited to display their works in all mediums from photography, graphic artistry, and sculpture, to film and experiential events. Of course, with a city-wide celebration of expression and creativity, the various soirées are also on the minds of the chic and social. A nightclub party designed by David Lynch and hosted by Pharrell, anyone? The festival runs December 5 - 8.
