Art Basel Miami is one of the largest celebrations of contemporary art in the world. And it’s on right now until the 6th December. Never ones to miss a party, we’ve collaborated with artist Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic on his latest work CODICES and we’re showing it at SCOPE Miami Beach. If you’re in Miami and want to say hi, we’re in the big tent on the beach!
While we’re busy inside the tent, curator, editor (and good friend), A. Moret is spending three days on the lookout for her favourite paper artists at Art Basel Miami. Here are her faves on her second day at the event.
