Art Basel Miami Beach – Vernissage Day – 2011

The tenth edition of Art Basel Miami Beach kicked off today. A few hundred feet into the chaos and I felt that the overall quality of the work was better than the previous two years. It is difficult to pinpoint the reason for this observation. Perhaps it is something to do with the economy or the influx of international collectors but the showing throughout was strong. If you plan to visit the Convention Center over the next few days, get there early and be prepared to walk and walk and walk. I took photographs of most of the work that demanded my attention but I am sure that another viewer would return with much different evidence.
