Every year, for one short week early in December, Miami and the Beaches come to life with art and those who love it (read up on the history of the fair with our oral account). Art Basel Miami Beach has given rise to a plethora of satellite fairs, pop-up shops, site-specific installations, intimate performances, and parties galore, and this year is no exception.
