New York, NY, and Miami Beach, FL, November 29, 2023 – Tribeca Festival and Art Basel today announced the lineup of Talks for Tribeca Festival at Art Basel Miami Beach taking place December 6-9, 2023. The event features four nights of live music performances and exclusive conversations at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, and runs in conjunction with the 21st edition of the premier international art fair, taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center (MBCC) December 8-10, with preview days on December 6-7.
Headlining the Talks is Robert De Niro in conversation with French artist JR about continuing the film icon’s family legacy of art through film. The two will also share a sneak peek of an upcoming project. Emmy Award-nominated actor, author, and producer John Stamos will also join for a fireside chat about his New York Times best-seller, “If You Would Have Told Me,” and a discussion about his creative process for performing across various mediums.
Additionally, Tribeca co-founder and CEO Jane Rosenthal and Whalar co-founder Neil Waller will discuss the evolution of the creator economy, and directors Nardeep Khurmi and David Fortune, the winners of AT&T Presents: Untold Stories, will share their insights on reaching wider audiences with their debut feature films, “Land of Gold” (2022) and “Color Book” (2024).
“Tribeca is at the forefront of storytelling and Art Basel is the premier international art fair. It’s only fitting that we’d join forces to bring together the biggest voices in art and film,” said Tribeca co-founder & CEO Jane Rosenthal. “We look forward to celebrating artists who are pushing boundaries and sharing our unique vision with audiences in Miami next month.”
Vincenzo de Bellis, Director, Fairs and Exhibition Platforms, Art Basel, said: “Creative visionaries from around the world continue to be drawn to Miami’s geography, people, and extraordinary cultural offer. Visitors and local audiences are in for a truly unique experience this year with Tribeca Festival at Art Basel Miami Beach, which brings together leading voices across the world of art in performance and in conversation. 20 years on, the experience of Art Basel Miami Beach within and beyond the fair halls continues to attract both established and entirely new audiences and bring out the best of the local cultural scene each December.”
Announced earlier this month, Tribeca Festival at Art Basel Miami Beach will kick off with the Music Lounge featuring live performances and DJ sets from rising multi-instrumentalist composer and vocalist Eartheater and DJ Dangerous Rose, who most recently opened for Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour. DJ Natasha Diggs presents “Soul in the Horn” with Yussef Dayes, a dance party featuring horn-infused sounds from around the globe. Artists from the soundtrack of the MAX Original series “Rap Sh!t” are set to perform following a panel on the discovery of artists and new music through TV and film. British electronic musician Actress will close the Lounge.
The event series, a first for both Art Basel and Tribeca Festival, builds on the latter’s popular Music Lounges at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn and Understory in Miami. Past performances and DJ sets include Flying Lotus, David Duchovny with Ben Stiller, DOMi & JD BECK, Rich Medina, Kamaal Williams, the Onyx Collective, and others.
Art Basel’s stalwart fair in the Americas returns to Miami Beach this year featuring 277 of the world's leading galleries, showcasing an extraordinary range of art at the highest level. On-site presentations will be complemented by a robust visitor program within and beyond the fair halls, made possible by Art Basel’s premier exhibitors and world-renowned cultural partners and collaborators in Miami Beach and South Florida.
