Why I’m Not Going to Miami

Where I won't be this week; photo courtesy Art Basel Miami BeachFor some reason, people have a hard time believing that I don’t make the annual pilgrimage to Miami for Art Basel Miami Beach. The fact of the matter is that I just don’t have a lot of interest in spending the weekend that deep in the belly of the art market beast.

But there is a host of secondary reasons why I don’t make the trip. Here’s a partial list:

I don't want to underestimate the value of being able to see so much art in so little time in one place, but I just can't get myself excited enough about ABMB to actually make the time to go. Heretical, I know.
