Art Basel Miami 2008: The Containers – videos

At this year’s Art Positions, 20 young galleries present their special exhibition projects in converted shipping containers, located by the beach at Collins Park between 21st and 22nd Streets.

Art Positions counts participating galleries from USA, Italy, Mexico, Germany, Austria, Great Britain, Norway, Spain and Denmark, chosen by the Selection Committee from over 120 submitted applications. Many of the artists have dealt directly with the architecture of the shipping container, using it as a starting point for their projects. Each beach containers has its own gallery, showcasing an installation by one artist or a group show.

Here are some short video clip on what’s featured at Art Basel Miami 2008’s Art Positions.
