Considered one of the most sought-after meticulously planned events on the American art world calendar, the Art Basel Miami Beach iteration features significant work from the masters of modern and contemporary art, as well as a new generation of emerging stars. Professionally it stands out as the year’s biggest opportunity to connect with global buyers. For both the casual attendee and honest art buff however, there’s equal doses of intriguing, clever, shocking and beautiful sights to lap up and absorb.
The official showings are held in the Miami Beach Convention Center, however unofficial satellites are as highly anticipated as the show, amping up the event energy in the process. Art Collecting provides an impressive overview detailing the selection on offer in Miami over fair time. SCOPE, Pulse Miami, Pérez Art Museum Miami, Wynwood Arts District, Design Miami and Untitled are all worth a look.
Will there be open displays of schmoozing? Yes. Will the dress code be indecipherably cool? Yes. Big money? Yes. All of these things, along with great weather, art deco neighbourhoods and cool restaurants that play into the design and arts scene too.
