Miami Art Week is back in full force for another year, with 267 galleries and thousands of artists from all over the world descending upon the city’s shores. The fair that started it all is Art Basel Miami Beach, which opened its doors to the masses yesterday. In short, the fair is an explosion of Modern to Post-modern to a mixture of everything, from Brancusi and Warhol to contemporary painters like Mark Ryden and Kehinde Wiley.

One could spend the entire week wandering the main fair’s halls alone. If you don’t know where to start, this year’s highlights include Ai Weiwei’s centrally located and larger than life installation of a giant tree, re-constructed from chopped trees in China, Frank Stella’s abstract paintings (now on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art) at the Paul Kasmin booth, and HF Vol. 20 artist Nick Cave’s shiny “Soundsuit” sculpture which is available for a pretty penny of $150,000, just to name a few. Take a look at more highlights from the main fair below and see it in person through December 6th if you’re in Miami.
