I walked in Art Basel knowing I wouldn’t like it. The main reason I went was because of guilt. The main event during Miami Art Week was Art Basel. The common name for the week as actually Art Basel weekend. I did not feel right by visiting for the first time and not attending the namesake event. So I headed to the Miami Convention Center, and paid the ticket price of $50 to view all things beautiful, weird, and thought-provoking.
The vibe of Art Basel was a lot more snooty than Scope. I didn’t even try to see everything since it was so huge and so crowded. Instead I wandered from row to row, wishing I was somewhere else.
