Art Basel shows take place in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami. Art Basel Miami takes place early December every year, turning all eyes in the international art world towards glitzy Miami Beach. While it's true that some of the most legendary parties of the North American annual high-profile party circuit take place at Art Basel Miami, you'd be mistaken to think it's all about exclusive networking or all night partying- art shows of this level and quality really are about the art. Discovering new artists, promoting exciting works, meeting people who can facilitate and share in promoting valuable and interesting pieces worldwide, while enjoying the atmosphere of vibrant, glamorous, multi-cultural, übersexy Miami.
A:Gent has picked out some favorite moods and moments from this year.
