While I would consider myself a bit of a newbie when it comes to the art world, I have dabbled enough in its history and practice to know a thing or two. I’m an avid museumgoer, and I pride myself in being able to find metaphors in almost everything, but put me in a room full of art snobs, and I turn pale with inexperience. During this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach —arguably one of the most well known art fairs around the globe— I naturally had the urge to attend a few pop up fairs during the week. Art Basel causes quite the celebration come December, and it being my first year attending, I was careful to note a few things I learned along the way.
