Why you shouldn’t miss Art Basel in Miami Beach 2015

It doesn’t matter if you don’t click immediately with the idea of contemplating art, all that this show is giving us is outside of the box art and if you live in Miami you just have to be there, otherwise you’ll regret it. 

Trust us: More than 200 of the world's leading modern and contemporary art galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa and Asia display paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, prints, photography, film, video, and digital art by over 4,000 artists.
