Last year we visited one of the biggest and most prestigious art fairs there is, the Art Basel Miami for the first time. This year BMW offered us to join the event again and we gladly accepted. In collaboration with Art Basel, BMW set up an exciting new project that we’ll soon tell you more about, so stay tuned.
Born as the ‘younger sister’ of the Art Basel in Switzerland 12 years ago, Art Basel Miami quickly sold more art than Basel itself, making 2.5 Mrd sales with 267 galleries and 4,000 participating artists. No surprise actually since there is certainly no lack of well-funded customers. Stars and art lovers are mingling with collectors from all over the world and we are right in the middle of it all. Just like last year we felt a little overwhelmed by the enormous variety and the sheer size of the fair, though there is so much to explore in the hallways, so we dove right in with the mission to spot the most exciting artworks for you. And here they are.
