In Miami Beach, galleries are flexing a curatorial muscle that has been growing steadily. Rather than remaining pure art dealers, many have increasingly become exhibition spaces dedicated to curated exhibitions. The Kabinett sector is focused on such presentations, with a particular emphasis on their art historical relevance. Thirty-one exhibitors are participating, staging capsule exhibitions within their booths. While no portion of the show floor is dedicated to it per se, Kabinett is like 31 treasure chests spread throughout the Convention Center, each containing exceptional - and often rarely seen - works of art.
