The art show that started it all is called Art Basel and it all began in Basel, Switzerland where have their show annually, as well as in Hong Kong. From what I’ve heard, ol’ Basel is quite boring compared to what goes on in Miami, though! Besides the art, Miami is THRIVING with parties, pop up restaurants, bars and events all with the backdrop of a beautiful beach setting including palm trees, sand and blue waves.
Every year my husband, The DJ, and I play a game of “What’s going to be the common thread?” In years past I’ve seen trends based on medium and subject matter, as if there is some sort of global synergy or intuition amongst artists the world over.
This year was no exception. I noticed:
