This year, tons of inventive projects unfold during Miami Art Week 2018 outside the established and emerging art fairs. Individuals and collectives passionate about public art and performance, film, video, music and social engagement will animate an upscale development on the beach, a luxury mall in Miami’s business district, the former Gold Dust Motel on Biscayne Boulevard, and an Asian bodega, an abandoned mall and a by-gone department store Downtown.
Art Week has come to this city every December since 2002, when the premiere art fair from Basel, Switzerland launched Art Basel Miami Beach. Since then, the year-round art scene has grown tremendously. Creatives from around the world are calling Miami home. When they come together at the intersection of art and life, it gets very exciting!
