Hello December!! Besides Christmas and New Year’s Eve, December brings the arrival of Miami Art Week with the focus of Art Basel. Art Basel brings together the masterful works of contemporary artists – from paintings and sculptures to substantial outdoor installations and performances – for four days at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
While Art Basel is a must-see event for any art lover or collector visiting South Florida, there is more to experience during the eclectic Miami Art Week such as Art Africa Miami.
Africa Miami provides a valuable and important cultural resource to the South Florida area, offering the Magic City a truly international flair. Art Africa Miami is a unique curated fair platform featuring visual works by the best emerging and established artists from Africa and its diaspora. The fair offers the opportunity for collectors to meet and buy directly from the artists.
Dates: December 4 – 8, 2019
Location: 920 NW 2nd Ave
Last night, I had the opportunity to attend the fair. The exhibition just took my breath away. Below are some of my favorite artworks.
If you are in town, make sure to check it out Art Africa and other activities that are going on in Overtown and the surrounding areas during Miami Art Week/Art Basel.
If you are not local, there is always next year to visit South Florida in December. The weather is beautiful and the art and beach is waiting for you. I can gladly curate a visit, just contact me.
