Art Basel Miami Beach

Art Basel Miami Beach 2016 and Satellite Fairs Guide

Art Basel is almost upon us. However, if you think the art hubbub stays contained to the Miami Beach Convention Center, you couldn't be more wrong.

In addition to the prestigious Swiss import, Miami and Miami Beach will host over 20 satellite fairs including stalwart like Art Miami, Design Miami, Scope, Pulse, and NADA to more up-and-coming offerings like Superfine!, Satellite, and Prizm. There are even two new fairs — Conception and Art Concept — making their debut this year.

So find some sensible walking shoes and a good tote bag, because next week is basically art walk on steroids.
