The editorial by Elisabeth Gazay, Associate Director:
LIVING ART OR ART OF LIVING?
As soon as the famous contemporary art fair, Art Basel, had the idea of choosing Miami as the anchor port for its American edition, 15 years ago, the relationship between Art and the city has changed. It was like an awakening, or an awakening ... Suddenly, only one major exhibition (which still has more than 250 galleries from around the world, 4000 artists and 70,000 visitors & #8230;) was no longer sufficient. It was necessary to go further: to offer other events, "happenings", to sow Art in the four corners of the city, in all its forms: painted walls, local art, open-air museums, parallel fairs such as Art Miami, Design Miami, Scope, Pulse, Nada, Aqua etc. New permanent museums are opening or renovating like the ICA or the BASS this year. Even the culinary scene becomes Art! And when canvases, photos, sculptures, installations go back to their new buyers or other destinations around the globe, Miami extends its new love affair with Art: real estate developers exhibit their personal collections in the entrances of buildings ultra-modern, on the forecourt of the new districts, and the new architect's houses open their doors on works that express themselves forcefully between the walls of glass and the interminable ceilings. In Miami, the Art of Living is said with a big "A".
