Art Miami moves closer to the action of Biscayne Bay this year, swapping the hipster neighbourhood of Wynwood for a waterfront location that has room for Context, its sister fair for emerging and mid-career artists, which takes place next door. The longest-running contemporary art fair in Miami, it is now in its 28th year, and showcases work from the 20th and 21st centuries.
