What to See in Midtown / by Ernesto Kunde

ART MIAMI

A stroll through this substantial art fair is arguably on every Baseler’s to-do list. Featuring more than 125 international galleries in a chic setting, Art Miami is the longest-running contemporary art fair in Miami. It anchors Art Basel in the Midtown neighborhood of Miami proper and welcomes about 60,000 visitors each year.

CONTEXT

CONTEXT, the sister fair to Art Miami, provides a platform for 65 international galleries to showcase cutting-edge and emerging talent in an open atmosphere. Now in its second year, the fair will take place in a standalone 45,000-square-foot pavilion directly adjacent to the Art Miami Pavilion joined by an outdoor café, lounge and curated outdoor art exhibition.

RED DOT ART FAIR 

Red Dot is also located next to Art Miami in Midtown. While this fair is a bit smaller, it prides itself on showing a diverse selection of paintings, sculptures, photography and fine-art objects from nearly 60 galleries.
