    Miami Recap: Is There a Global Art Esthetic?

    A roundup of favorites from 8 fairs, 3 museums, 3 private collections, and 2 public projects

    There were a lot of foreign accents during Miami art week, with the usual mix of art and fashion and celebrities and this year the addition of an international coterie of starchitects who’ve been vying to make their mark on the youthful skyline.

    But the most symbolic accent has to be an é: the one in the Pérez Art Museum Miami, the first major U.S. museum to have one in its name, which opened triumphantly in its Herzog & de Meuron building with a pan-American perspective and exhibitions devoted to artists born in Morocco, Cuba, Poland, China, Israel, the U.S., and Scotland, though most of them left their native countries to live elsewhere.
