minute read

    If you have time outside of attending the main events of Miami Art Week, it might be worth exploring the satellite fairs. These smaller but established, quality fairs come with unique exhibits and are extensions of the larger event, which debuted in Basel, Switzerland in 1970. Three Swiss gallery owners who initially wanted to create an excitement within the art world have now led to a world-wide event sprinkled with satellite fairs across Miami.
