Art Basel Satellite Fairs: Banksy, Pinta, Art Miami, and More Hit the Mainland

If you're intimidated by Miami Beach traffic during Basel week, plenty of art fairs on the mainland will keep you busy.

Art Miami, which marks its 25th anniversary, and its sister fair, Context (3101 NE First Ave.; art-miami.com, contextartmiami.com), are the most significant of the Midtown big tops.

Together, they present work from close to 2,000 artists hailing from 60 countries.

Last year, the conjoined fairs drew more than 72,500 visitors during their six-day run. That was more than gathered for Art Basel Miami Beach at the convention center.
