Where to Go and What to See

~Miki Johnson

This week's big art happenings are all in Miami because...well, wouldn't you rather be in Miami this time of year? This will mark Art Basel's sixth year and Pulse Miami's third year in the tropical Florida town. And this year AIPAD, the huge international art dealer's group that runs its flagship art fair in New York every year, has also jumped on board. Plus, with several other smaller exhibits and fairs feeding off of these three major players -- it might just be time to get the sunglasses and Bermuda shorts out of storage.

For those of us staying in the chilly northern climes, I recommend the photographer talks at the School of Visual Arts (especially Jonathan Torgovnik, who I, like pretty much every else, love), and the holiday party for Magnum Magnum, this year's huge commemorative book on, you guessed it, Magnum, with each photographer seen through the eyes of another member of the collective.
