Getting Ready for Art Basel Miami Beach 2017

In just a few shorts days it will be the 16th edition of the contemporary "Art Bonanza" known as Art Basel in Miami Beach. The event which started in Basel Switzerland attracts over 260 of the world's leading galleries showing works from thousands of artists worldwide and an exciting week long of events. Scores of art enthusiasts, Artists and Media will gather at the South Beach Convention Center on December 7th. 

We are at The Haute Lifestyle will be attending for the first time on Sunday and we already have some tips to share on how we are getting ready. Heading to Art Basel this year? Read our tips below.

Location, location ... location

Miami Beach Convention Center - Art Basel 2017 will be held here
One of the most commonly asked questions about events is "where is it located". Sometimes we get so busy that checking the location of an event is the last thing on our list, however, there's a fix for that. Simply put the event +location in your calendar and save the direction. Thanks to Google's location feature, finding the location of an event is now a breeze.

Get your Outfits Ready

 An event like Art Basel is more on the artsy side so your outfit should reflect that. Think of expertly styling your outfit rather than throwing things together. The main goal for me is to look artsy, comfortable and to our course stand out. There will be tons of photographers at the event and you should definitely think to yourself  "would I really like to be photographed in this"? Dress up and dress nice!

Know the Days

The Art

The main focus of Art Basel is as the name suggests "Art" with that being said, there is so much to see that it could become overwhelming! The event revealed new architecture for the show in the form of a new floor plan conceived and executed by Tom Postma Design. This simply means there will be a lot of walking involved and it will probably be grouped by similarities for example all the paintings will be together and all the sculptures together and so on. Decide on what you want to see before hand so that you don't get lost in the sauce or in this case the Art.

Art Basel is an International Art Fair with 3 shows spread across Switzerland, Miami Beach and Hong Kong that attracts the most influential designers, curators, artists, critics, gallerists and
collectors in one space.
