MutualArt | Posted 06.21.2015 | Arts

The great hall of the world's most influential international art fair might seem like the last place one might find utopia. Indeed, it almost seems antithetical to the art fair environment, as a realm of commercial activity predicated on exclusivity and lavish displays of luxury it is hardly the setting for utopian ideals.

We love Art Basel for many reasons, including the tidal wave of glamour that washes over Miami. And there was glamour in spades during the 13th annual Art Basel Miami Beach, where art, design, fashion, music, and celebrity blended into a deliciously decadent cocktail.

While most of Art Basel and the satellite fairs seem to be crowded with locals, I think the majority of visitors are out-of-towners or the usual Miami party people. It seems to me like the "real" residents of Miami-Dade County are not enjoying Art Week.

Art Basel is not Art Basel. Art Basel is just a small component and maybe the worst and most boring part of Art Basel.
