Art Week In Miami
The first event of commercial art of the twentieth century was in 1913, the Armory Show in New York showed the new artists of the time, among them Braque, Duchamp and Kandinsky. Today art fairs have surpassed auction houses first choice when purchasing art. They are adrenaline-charged events, art shows no curatorial line, a show of characters where intimacy, conviction, patience and focus on the purchase and sale of art are essentially nonexistent. The four major international art fairs are: Maastricht, Netherlands in March, Art Basel, Switzerland in June, Art Basel Miami Beach in December and Frieze London in October.
