It’s that time of year again when temporary tents pop up, graffiti artists work their magic in Wynwood and the Art World flocks to Miami. You’ve read one article you’ve read them all: 15 Exhibitions Not To Miss, The Best Musical Performances During Art Week, 8 Artists To Watch This Basel Season, Top 5 Dinner Parties You Are Not Invited To, and the list goes on.

I love this time of year in Miami not only is the weather gorgeous and everyone is in town but during Art Basel Miami Beach and Miami Art Week there is a chance to see some amazing masterpieces and witness really high quality lectures and guest speakers. Just call me a dork now, it's ok.

This year I’m not working as a design docent for LVMH (which has been my post for the past couple years) and I have planned my week's schedule to design perfection. That is, I’m focusing more on design than on art this year which is being celebrated with some interesting events.

Last night was a great start with Table Talks: Disruptive Design at Soho Beach House. Guest speakers Marcus Fairs from Dezeen, Jessica Banks from Rock Paper Robot and from Partisan Architecture: Nicola Spunt and Alex Josephson held a great conversation on the nature and effects of disruptive design in relation with their individual practices and experiences.

Other events on my agenda this week include:

Design Miami
Untitled Art
Miami Project
Art Miami
Building Reality conversation at We Work
Littlest Sister panel discussion on the Boundaries of Art + Design
Art Basel Artist Talk Jenny Holzer
Art Basel Miami Beach
Superfine! House of Art & Design
Design Dialogue with Jean Pigozzi and Simon de Pury
Art Basel Salon L.A. Then & Now
Sagamore Brunch
Art Basel Salon What Profit: Hybrid Art Spaces


Of course at any time if I find myself in the vicinity of the Rubell Family Collection, the de la Cruz Collection, the Wolfsonian or JugoFresh I will have to make a stop even though these are ongoing this month. Of course I’ll catch a party or two, an added bonus!

Happy Baseling!!
