What is there, really, left to say about this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach and its dozens of concurrent fairs and events? Given the ample ink and pixels already spilled—like ostentatious collector Charles Saatchi’s anti-ostentatious-collector diatribe in the Guardian, Blake Gopnik’s Monopoly-money fantasy spree in the Daily Beast, and Martin Marks’ satire of Miami’s over-the-top art-party scene in Vanity Fair—the answer might seem to be “very little.”

Yet there is still much to report about the Canadian presence at this year’s events.

Over the past 10 years of Art Basel Miami Beach, the north-of-the-49th contingent has grown to include public gallery directors, museum curators, private collectors, art dealers, nonprofit organizations, consultants, members of the media, and, last but not least, Canadian artists themselves. This report provides a glimpse at some of the Canadians participating in last week’s events.
