Art Basel Miami Beach
This year's ABMB comes with a ripple effect of 12 other fairs. There’s a lot to see. Here are some of my recommendations... (wait! first, get a map: This is a good one (via Critical Miami): 1- Scope Miami is a solid fair with great galleries from all over the world. Don't miss NADA with some heavy duties. 2- Design Miami 06 (in its second installment) is already one best design fairs in the world (check out Zaha Hadid’s panel. Hadid, my favorite architect, won the Pritzker Prize in 2004). 3- In the middle of everything there’s some some goofy stuff. 4- Love photography? Go to PhotoMiami (there are some Miami galleries represented). 5- Go local, all over the Design District and Wynwood: Ingalls, Snitzer, Bruk, Dorsch, The Moore Space, etc. 6- Artnet has a good take on different events. 7- If you're interested in photo and video (particularly about architecture) CIFO is a good option (their parties are really cool). 8- Other sites with detailed suggestions and links are: The Next Few Hours and Alex in the City. Don't stay home. Go, go!
