Once again, the temperate city of Miami proved to be a breeding ground for all manner of art-world excess during the week of Art Basel Miami Beach, which this year was notable for having more actual art parties than fashiony hoo-has, car launches, fancy-watch soirées, and what have you. Here are photos from a few of the signal events.
