BY Richard Latter | November 27, 2017 | Feature Features

Ready... set... go! Art Week is here! While there's a lot out there to choose from, here are 10 sure bets you shouldn't miss.
The Museum of Ice Cream is ready to enchant visitors.

The Big Fair
Art Basel Miami Beach is the reason why there’s an Art Week in the first place. This year’s new fair layout by Tom Postma Design means more exhibition space, wider aisles, more food options and more places to relax those tired feet. Expect to see more than 268 prestigious galleries from around the world showcasing their very best artists. Dec. 7-10, $50-$120, 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach

The Original
Long before there was Art Basel, Art Miami was the fair South Florida collectors flocked to. That still has not changed. For its 28th edition, the event will present an array of iconic and exemplary works, dynamic projects and special installations from more than 140 exhibitors. Plus: More than 850,000 visitors are expected to flock to the fair’s new waterfront location. Dec. 5-10, $50-$250, One Herald Plaza, Biscayne Bay and 14th Street, Miami, 305.517.7977

New & Improved
A multimillion-dollar renovation has made The Bass one of the most intriguing museums in the country. To celebrate, the museum is presenting a solo exhibition by Mika Rottenberg, whose works revolve around women’s issues. The moving kinetic ponytails are not to be missed. Dec. 7-April 30, 2100 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.673.7530

Design Savvy
Design Miami/ is still going strong. Basel’s little sister will present 11 Design Curio installations and multiple design talks with some of the world’s leading talent during its run. Not to be missed is the Cristina Grajales Gallery space, where the bamboo work of brothers Doug and Mike Starn will be on display. Dec. 6-10, $25-$60, Meridian Avenue and 19th Street, Miami Beach

Taking Shape
New to the satellite fair circuit this year, FORM presents both emerging and established artists and focuses solely on applied arts and sculptural objects. That means ceramics, glass, fiber and wood from leading galleries around the world. Dec. 6-10, $25-$100, Washington Avenue and 17th Street, Miami Beach, 800.563.7632
