  • This was my first time, even though I have been trying to go for years. I went to four of the shows, Prizm, Untitled, No Commission and the main show. They were all very different but worth seeing on their own merit. The parties are fun but the art is the main attraction. Start early and plan to go to the main show on multiple days as it is huge. This year there was the Miami Design show at the same time which added to the experience.
  • Art Basel is the move. This fair & the fairs surrounding it are nice. Pick one you can afford and go see the art. The events outside of the art fairs are well...marketing events. They're not equal to Art Basel. There's so much art to be consumed in one place in Miami during this one week in December. Even if you don't have the secured bag to collect artworks...it's aspirational. You can aspire to collect, curate, connect, collage.
  • To be honest I felt that most of the art wasn’t very good, and virtually none of it was as good as the people watching. Still, Art Basel is a blast. You see a ton of art, the sheer quantity is incredible, and it’s a total scene. It’s a great way to get an overview of what’s going on in contemporary art. Also you get to drink champagne while you are doing it, and who can argue with that?
  • It was nice to be able to visit a fair with such a huge variety of contemporary artwork I will also recommend to visit art Miami
  • Great talent and vibe.... awesome artist.....sights and alot to be seen.....gets very packed!!!... Miami in full effect!
