If you were to start at the corner of NE 36th and 1st in Miami’s Wynwood Art District, and start walking towards the Miami Project, the directions might look a little like this: Start with the glowing white tent of the Brazil Art Fair on your left, and walk south, past the glowing white tents of the CONTEXT Art Fair, Red Dot Art Fair, and Art Miami. If you hit SPECTRUM Miami or the ArtSpot Art Fair, you’ve gone too far. One begins to suspect there are a few too many satellite fairs.

Like most art fairs, Art Basel Miami Beach is conspicuously unaware of its past. The fair closed yesterday, and already its website header has begun hyping Miami Beach 2013.

Art Basel Miami has a new fair in town, and if Miami Project’s first run is any indication, it will be a player for years to come. That has a lot to do with the fair’s organizers, artMRKT Productions, a company operated by Max Fishko and Jeffrey Wainhause that is known for its fairs in Houston, San Francisco, and the Hamptons. This experience has clearly paid off, as they were able to draw 33 solid exhibitors, and produce a beautiful fair.
