Projects Gallery is excited to announce its fourth edition of Square Foot Art Basel Miami.

This is a first-come, first-served call; and the first 75 artists to apply are guaranteed a spot without being juried. After the first 75 applicants, the gallery director will jury entries. Continuing our tradition of creating a mosaic-style hanging, Projects Gallery will provide artists with a chance to be part of the largest art fair event in the world.
