December 2023 dates TBA.   Featuring numerous galleries and exhibitors from the UK, this is Miami’s cultural event of the year.  I have attended every year since its 2002 launch,  with art collector friends over especially from LondonThe show always features hundreds of  premier galleries from 32 countries, including influential collectors, directors, curators, trustees and patrons of leading international museums and institutions. These often include London’s Serpentine Galleries and the Tate.  It’s enjoyable to ogle handsome English dealers in pin-stripe Saville Row suits as much as their inventory.  No flip-flops here.  There are over 800 art-related events and satellite parties in all districts of Miami.  Famed British artists exhibit/attend every year, such as Tracy Emin who flies in especially and holds court at the Miami Beach location of London’s Soho House.  Participants make it the most prestigious Art show of the Americas, featuring established galleries and dynamic newcomers, ranging from a few hundred dollars to several million for museum-quality masterpieces.  SEE COMPLETE DETAILS and HOW TO BUY TICKETS: on www.artbasel.com/miami-beach
