MIAMI — Since Art Basel’s Miami Beach fair set down its roots over a decade ago, Miami Art Week has become a cacophony of satellite fairs and events jam-packing the international art circuit’s calendar for the first week of December. One fair that gives the flagship behemoth a run for its money is actually its predecessor, Art Miami. An eclectic mix of galleries focusing on the primary and secondary markets inhabits this international fair, which encompasses three large tents in midtown Miami. Next door is a smaller tent that houses Art Miami’s sister fair, Context, a venue for younger spaces showing emerging and mid-career artists. Context is the MoMA PS1 to Art Miami’s MoMA: smaller, younger, and sleeker.
