Here we go again: Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 just released the names of this year’s exhibitors. Though the list runs about as long as last year’s (258 in 2013, 257 in 2012), the fair has added Edition, a new section of 13 art publishers that includes New York’s Pace Prints and Two Palms. And though there are some Western European additions (mostly from Berlin), Art Basel’s press release notes that nearly half of this year’s exhibitors are from the Americas, making the Miami Beach show “the premier destination for galleries from the United States and Latin America.” That includes a couple more local Florida galleries and Chicago’s Corbett vs. Dempsey, which was added to the Nova section.

“Greetings from Captain John. There will be no swimming and no diving.” Sailing on the Frieze ferry to Randall’s Island, the driver told us that we were on our way to vacation, but cautioned against letting loose with freewheeling abandon. Once we landed, that ethos seemed to be in effect at the fair itself: dealers and collectors were having fun, and the fair was certainly crowded, but nobody was breaking out champagne in the early afternoon to celebrate skyrocketing sales.
