Isaac Julien and Frank Bowling are among the 30 artists selected by Art Basel in Miami Beach (5-8 December) to participate in the fair’s new Meridians section for large-scale installations, videos and performances. Julien, presented by Victoria Miro, Galeria Nara Roesler, Jessica Silverman and Galerie Ron Mando, is due to show Lina Bo Bardi-A Marvellous Entanglement (2019), a nine-screen video installation on the Italian-born Brazilian Modernist architect. Hales Gallery will show Africa to Australia (1971), a 6m-wide abstract canvas by Bowling. Following the same concept as Unlimited at Art Basel and Encounters at Art Basel in Hong Kong, Meridians will be located in the Miami Beach Convention Center's Grand Ballroom, a newly-opened 60,000 sq. ft. space above the main exhibition halls. Magalí Arriola of the arts organisation Kadist and curator of Mexico’s presentation at this year’s Venice Biennale is curating the section. The full list of artists is due to be announced next week.
