art basel 2008.

should be very interesting.
there are two times of the year that i love miami the most; art basel & wmc.
with art basel being just around the corner (the official dates are december 4th-7th), i figured id give a run down on a few of the events/galleries i will be attending. last year was great. i got to meet some of my favorite artists (including dave white) !! who knows what this year will be like, but the lineup of events already has me excited.

eh. ive heard them play 5 times... and with how heathrow has been recently, im not too stoked on being there at all. however, all my friends are going- so ill definitely be stopping by for some drinks and hugs.



as of now those are the definite ones, there are plenty more that i have my eye on and i'd love to check out- but, its also finals week at my university (this always happens!), so i need to be home for at least 2 days this week, hahah. ill be stopping by plenty more of the galleries while im down there, so holler at me if youre going to be in the miami area for art basel!

peace & love.
