ART BASEL MIAMI 2012, Dec 4 – 9

“Soon enough Miami will be overtaken by art… well, the art market, in a display of crass commercialism that flaunts a disgusting amount of wealth. But we get it. You want to partake and rub elbows with Europeans in funny clothing and New Yorkers with zero sense of humor — we do too! And luckily, you can, because a lot of the art fairs, gallery shows, and exhibits are open to the public, even if for a price.”
You can get all information you need in the “Art Fairs & Gallery Guide” done by the Jose D. Duran published at the Miami NewTimes Blog. It’s a compiled guide with all that there is to do and be seen during the week of Art Basel Miami Beach 2012, also referred to as Miami Art Week. Take your notes and Enjoy while you can!
