Dream Week for “I Want it All” people…


From endless art to parties, from underground events to the glitzy celebrity-studded affairs.. let’s face it, you want it all!


Here are some highlights to share…  hope to see you there!



MON DEC 3 – UNTITLED and Select

One of the most highly-anticipated new fairs this year, UNTITLED launches the week with a private event. This is “the ticket” to have on December 3. The fair is exceptional in both context and location. It is curated (typically biennials are curated, but not art fairs) by Omar Lopez-Chahoud, which promises to capture the audience in a meaningful ensemble. The fair structure is designed by renowned architect, and former Miami Art Museum Director, Terence Riley. The location represents the best of Miami Beach – it will be the first fair to be housed on the beach, located between 13th and 12th streets. Preview rating: Magical!

Select- new fair, new concept. Intriguing! Wynwood warm-up party.
