MIAMI - Each autumn, the contemporary art world descends on Miami, as Art Basel Miami Beach brings together galleries from around the world. Sotheby’s Scott Nussbaum presents an insider’s guide to what to see and do while you’re in town.
Miami is home to numerous private collections – the Rubell Family Collection (RFC), Marty Margulies’ Warehouse, Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation and the de la Cruz Collection – that are generously shared with the public. Go see 28 Chinese Artists at the RFC while you are in Miami this December.
At Zuma, a sleek restaurant in downtown Miami that serves modern Japanese cuisine, you
can always find fresh, inventive flavours. After a long day at the
fair, it is the perfect place to enjoy Miami nightlife.

NADA Art FairJust as important to check out as Art Basel Miami Beach, the NADA art fair, organised by the New Art Dealers Alliance runs concurrently as Basel, and brings cutting-edge, more experimental and less predictable works to centre stage.
W Hotel South Beach
The W Hotel South Beach is located on Collins Avenue, in the centre of the action. Besides being convenient to the fair, it has a great scene with Mr. Chow restaurant, chef Andrew Carmellini’s The Dutch and the trendy Living Room Bar.
