This Year’s Miami Art Week Fairs Draw Attention Away From Art Basel
Every December, Art Basel’s grand arrival in Miami Beach kicks off a week of satellite art shows, museum exhibits, and gallery events that complement the world-renowned art fair’s collection of work. Sometimes the best events aren’t part of Basel proper, and that’s really what Miami Art Week is all about: showcasing the Magic City’s status as an international art hub as opposed to simply being a host for the main event. This year’s lineup of satellite art fairs has something for everyone, and each tells a distinct story about different parts of Miami’s expansive art world.
The immaculately curated Untitled will erect its massive tent on the sand at 12th Street in South Beach. The fair will ship in artists’ work from galleries across several continents, and the fellows of AIRIE (Artists in Residence in Everglades) and the Miami outpost of the Uruguay-based Piero Atchugarry Gallery will represent the Magic City. Wednesday, December 4, through Sunday, December 8, on the beach at 12th Street, Miami Beach; untitledartfairs.com. Tickets cost $25 to $35; admission is free to children 12 and under.
