Bruno Mars says it all in his pop tune “24K Magic” when he sings, “Guess who’s back again?”

But instead of Mr. Mars, we’re talking about Art Basel in Miami Beach. On view at the Miami Beach Convention Center from December 1-4, 2016, the 15th edition of the world’s premier art fair features 269 leading international galleries, drawn from 29 countries across North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa.  

Ranging from historically significant projects and film to painting, photography and large-scale sculpture, exhibitors are offering thousands of captivating artworks by hundreds of modern and contemporary artists.

Systematically scanning this year’s selection, Whitehot has put together a personalized portfolio of works that are not-to-be-missed. Scroll through to see the art that visitors to the fair will be posting on Instagram later this week. WM
