Here is a video recap of the opening of Art Basel Miami Beach version of this olympic art fair which attracts savvy collectors from all over the world. Today's opening event in Switzerland is reserved for invited VIP's and other notable guests.
Tomorrow, the rest of world's die-hard art enthusiasts can gain access. Located primarily in the city's main convention center, several important satellite fairs occur simultaneously to attract all the collectors.
The Basel and Miami events are sister shows hosted and owned by Swiss company MCH. Last year, over 60,000 people attended the Miami version. ARTKABINETT has many independent collectors in attendance. We will be sure to post updates in our Featured Videos, Active Forum, and AK Files.
