Art Week Miami 2010

Sixteen standout artists seen at Art Basel Miami and beyond

by CH Contributor
on 08 December 2010

Save a few post-recession moments, each passing year of art-fueled events taking over Miami Beach and beyond during the first week in December seems bigger than the last. With more and more lavish parties, dinners and VIP previews surrounding the core established by Art Basel, it's easy to lose sight of the actual art within the fabulous, sun-splashed platform for marketing luxury that the experience has become. After visiting nearly all the fairs, we managed to find a few gems sourced from Nada, Basel, Pulse and Scope however—from OCD techniques to slightly goth themes, commentaries on visual culture and pop art statements—all pictured below.
