These Are Miami Art Week 2021's Must-See Shows

Miami Art Week is easily one of, if not the most, anticipated celebrations in the city. Beginning with the first Art Basel in 2002, what was once a singular art fair on Miami Beach has expanded to a citywide string of exhibitions, events, and festivities that draw artists, celebrities, and visitors from around the world.


While there are hundreds of events and exhibitions happening throughout Miami, here are the week's five main art fairs, each of which showcases some of the world's finest contemporary and modern art.
