The art fairs are coming!

Seriously, last time we counted, almost 20 major art fairs are setting up shop in Miami and Miami Beach during the first week of December, hoping to make record-breaking sales thanks to the hoopla surrounding Art Basel Miami Beach. And though the Miami Beach Convention Center remains the center of all the action, you'd be a fool not to check out satellite fairs such as Scope, NADA, and Art Miami, which have proven themselves worthy of respect and attention.

There are some changes this year, including Pulse's surprising move from its longtime home at Ice Palace Studios to a tent in Mid-Beach next to the Eden Roc. Select Art Fair is also looking for more room as it moves out of the Catalina Hotel and into North Shore Park in North Beach.

And some fairs will be notably absent, including Arts Kuala Lumpur and Brazil Art Fair, both of which debuted last year but didn't see the need to return. We also lament the absence of Fountain Art Fair, one of Miami's original satellite art fairs, which continues to put on a New York edition.

Upcoming Events

But enough lamenting. Time to celebrate art the art marketplace!
