The first week of each December, Art Basel Miami Beach somehow ups the city’s sophistication and party quotients simultaneously. How could Miami’s party quotient possibly increase, you ask? Stay tuned here to see the evidence. Stylenik will be bringing you reports from Art Basel’s amazing art exhibitions and, of course, over-the-top parties. So stay tuned for the inside scoop! We’ll share loads of photos as well, just to show you how much we wish you were here. Look for street fashion galleries, virtual art galleries, and any other kind of gallery we can come up with over the next five days (and likely beyond).
Oh, and in case you’re wondering what an Art Basel is: the Miami version of the original Art Basel in Switzerland launched in 2006 and quickly outgrew its predecessor to become the largest annual art fair in the country. Art Basel has also spawned a kajillion spinoff art and design fairs including New Art Dealers Alliance, Scope, Pulse, Photo Miami, Design Miami and lots more, not to mention the plethora of parties, dinners, shows, brunches and the like. Get ready for an arty party week (sorry, couldn’t resist)!
