"Art Basel Miami Beach 4-7 Dec 2008" 
Edited by Art Basel

Art Basel Miami Beach’08 (December 4-7) is one of the most important fairs in the art realm. Therefore, it should be no surprise that its massively-sized fair catalogue mirror the significance of such a world-class event. Behind the bright orange-pink cover, over 220 galleries present themselves, including the selection of one highlighted artist from each. Unfortunately for art enthusiasts though, the presentations of both the galleries and artists appear somewhat brief, not necessarily making full use of catalogue’s ample supply of available space.

The main exhibition of Art Basel Miami Beach is accompanied by numerous other exhibitions and events that provide more special and particular focuses. For instance, at the “Art Supernova,” galleries are showing new works by young artists, while small-curated exhibitions can be viewed in the eighteen “Art Cabinets.”

Whether Art Nova, Art Supernova, Art Positions, Art Cabinet or another event – the catalogue provides a valuable orientation. Overall, only one recommendation can be heralded to art lovers: “Come to Miami!”
