Art Basel is appointing Noah Horowitz, currently the executive director of theArmory Show in New York, to be its new director of the Americas, running Art Basel Miami Beach.
Mr. Horowitz’s job will be to oversee and lead the development of Art Basel’s outpost in the United States, which takes place each December.
He will report to Marc Spiegler, the overall director of the Art Basel group of contemporary and Modern art fairs. The original Basel version, founded in 1970 in that Swiss city, hosts hundreds of contemporary and Modern art dealers from around the world each June. In 2002, the group added the Miami Beach fair, and in 2013, an iteration in Hong Kong.
