The substance beneath the style – ABMB

Miami is still partying, but galleries have institutional collectors in mind.

t is currently in vogue to dismiss Miami as a hedonistic party town where art plays second fiddle to the fizz and glamour of this week’s soirées. The sheer number of events organised by brands promoting booze, bags and luxury goods has recently sparked criticism from art-world figures and leading newspapers including the New York Times, which ran a story headlined “At Art Basel Miami Beach, Squeezing Art Out of the Picture” last weekend.

Those who fear the demise of meaningful creative content, however, would do well to actually look at the art on show.
