FOMO is Real: Prism’s Guide to Art Basel

November 30, 2015



By admin

Aside from an insane amount of breathing exercises, there are quite a few things you’ll need to do to survive this year’s Art Basel and Miami Art Week. Regardless of the overwhelming amount of stimulation that’s about to go down, our city will be turning into a revolving playground for every art enthusiast. From the most obscure contemporary, to Salvador Dali’s designs, from British Disco superstars to American singer-songwriters, let’s take a look at our picks for the top concerts, fairs, shows, and afterparties. We suggest you grab a drink and take a seat, ’cause our Basel Guide is the biggest one yet.

Note to the Basel first-timers: You DO NOT need a ticket to Art Basel in order to enjoy the satellite shows and concerts. It does, however, give you some perks and is the week’s namesake after all.
