This past week I felt like a true jet setter or rather like a famed artist that emerged from nowhere as I literally dove head first into the insanity that is ArtBasel. I highly recommend that you heighten your social calendar next year and take a trip South to escape to now what is my favorite time in Miami. I was blown away with the rigorous planning one must procure in advance in order to gracefully make way during Basel. It’s not just the art...it’s the events, galas, and breezy tropical nights that lure the sophisticated and uber good looking crowd to Basel.
A VIP pass will get you up close and personal with the planet’s top galleries, notable fairs, aspiring talents and most importantly, influential curators from around the world to help distill your artistic eye. With over 260 galleries from 29 countries the city beats with an undeniable pulse showcasing modern and contemporary works from the 20th and 21st century. It's bound to overwhelm you with inspiration! I was so impressed with the opening of the much anticipated Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). It is a work of art itself architecturally, I mean amazing with an outdoor hanging garden installation beyond! Art Basel was impressive, Art Miami in the design district...my favorite, and smaller fairs like Untitled, Scope and Pulse in their self-contained pop up tents on the white coral beaches were equally inviting.
