When Art Basel landed in Miami Beach 20 years ago, it was clear the fair would change the city's art scene for the better. But nobody could have predicted that it would literally transform the first week of December into a cornucopia of visual art. The arrival of the Swiss fair also brought with it satellite events looking to capitalize on the crowds in Miami.

Fairs like Scope, NADA, and Design Miami have existed for almost as long as Art Basel itself — and some even rival it in quality. Then you have relatively newer offerings like Satellite, Untitled, and Prizm, which have only served to further elevate Miami Art Week.

This year also brings the return of Aqua Art Miami, which went on hiatus during the pandemic, and a new fair, Feria Clandestina, which is set to take up residence at the Seven Seas Motel in Miami's Upper Eastside. Additionally, Pinta moves from Wynwood to Coconut Grove, giving the historic neighborhood its first proper art fair during the week.

And while NFTs continue to be somewhat part of the conversation, most of the fairs have chosen to ignore them, with Scope, which is selling its VIP tickets as NFTs, seemingly the lone exception. (NFT Now and Mana Common are cohosting an event called "The Gateway," but it feels less like a fair and more like a Tony Robbins-esque "NFT Is the Future!" seminar.)
