Art Basel 2012

The 2012 edition of Art Basel in Miami Beach officially closed yesterday, Sunday, December 9. Praised by artists, exhibitors and visitors as Art Basel’s most serious presentation in Miami Beach to date, its galleries across the board reported some great showings. Art Basel may have been the main attraction, but my friends and I found ourselves just as captivated by the vast collection of Art Deco architecture along Collins Avenue. Untitled was particularly interesting, as it was held in a tent directly on the beach. The tent was constructed so that the fair was lit by entirely naturally light and even had a few transparent walls so that visitors could look out onto the crystalline waters. We came across lots of things we loved at all the fairs (our eyes literally ached after our day at Basel!) and look forward to returning for their second year on the beach in 2013.
