Now in its 13th incarnation, a run of art shows and performances swarming Miami’s arts scene with a kaleidoscope of parties and associated events. Paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, films, and works of the highest quality were on display in the main exhibition hall, while ambitious artworks and performances became part of the landscape at nearby beaches, Collins Park and SoundScape Park.
