Here’s your guide to what not to miss during the coastal city’s Art Week and Art Basel Miami Beach

Friday 18 November 2022     By Soho House

For global art dealers, collectors and gallerists, Art Basel Miami Beach fair has it all: more than 200 international galleries, big art names and emerging rule-breakers – and, of course, parties where connections and deals are made.

 This year, Art Basel Miami Beach is celebrating its 20th anniversary (run by Art Basel alongside the fairs in Switzerland, Hong Kong and the brand-new Paris+ in the French capital). Miami Art Week precedes the fair, which runs from 1 to 3 December 2022. The centre of the action will be Miami Beach Convention Center, but truly during the next two weeks the whole city will be taken over by numerous satellite events and displays.

Soho Beach House Miami always becomes a focal point during this time, and this year is no exception. Here are our picks from the curated programme of events at the House – with the full listing available on the SH.APP, including parties, talks and lunches hosted by White Cube, FriendsWithYou, the ICA , Porsche, and more.

3. Nina Chanel Abney installation and morning toast 
Thursday 1 December 

Join us for a toast in celebration of the opening of Nina Chanel Abney’s immersive hallway installation inspired by ‘Nina Chanel’s Super Cool World’, a collection of 5,080 NFTs that are made up of hundreds of traits designed by Abney that reflect her frenetic collage-like approach to visual media. ‘Super Cool World’ is a generative PFP-based project created as an alternative way to interact with fans and collectors. Each ‘Super Cool World’ NFT is a unique piece of artwork that doubles as an invitation to participate in the evolution of Abney’s career. The event is hosted in association with Patrón.
