Miami Art Basel 2016 Highlights


Thursday 1st December - Sunday 4th December 2016
Yesterday saw the opening of the 15th edition of Art Basel - the world's largest and most important art fair taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Sponsored by Ruinart, this fair attracts the "who is who" of not only the art world but also luxury brands, fashion and celebrities which all gather here every year to hunt down unique contemporary art pieces and enjoy a never ending stream of glitzy and glamorous parties. During the fair there are a number of super cool satellite fairs definitely worth visiting...amongst my favourite there is the Pulse fair in Indian beach park, the satellite Fair at the Parisian Hotel, Aqua Art Miami, Design Miami and last but not least Scope art fair
