The uninitiated often make the erroneous assumption that Art Basel Miami Beach is actually about art. But the real reason for staging the fair, one of North Americas most massive and moneyed art-world office parties, is just that to party.
If youre one of those big-baller investor types, your Basel headquarters should be the Florida Room, where French club Le Baron will stage a total takeover for the second year in a row. This Wednesday through Sunday, these Parisian purveyors of nightlife mayhem will cohost parties with Design Miami, Purple Fashion magazine, and Visionaire, not to mention a Jalousemagazine bash starring pop-punk band the Virgins.
