The next curator of Art Basel Miami Beach’s open-air sculpture exhibition, due to take place in December, will be Nicholas Baume, the director and chief curator of the New York-based Public Art Fund. Entitled “Public”, the third edition of the exhibition will be co-produced with Miami Beach’s Bass Museum of Art. The event will be staged in the waterfront park in front of the institution and near the city’s convention centre. Baume says: “I’m an Australian who is an adoptive New Yorker, so palm trees, tropical breezes and the beach are my natural habitat.” He is looking forward to installing ambitious new works by major artists, possibly in dialogue with historic works, he says. Baume has led the Public Art Fund since September 2009. The fund’s exhibitions have included solo projects by Ugo Rondinone, Thomas Schütte, Monika Sosnowska, Paola Pivi and Ryan Gander.
