Art Basel 2015: Parties, Galleries, and Pop-Ups You're Actually Invited To

The most exciting time of the year in Miami is here: Miami Art Week! Galleries, parties, and pop-ups will take place all around the city, but unfortunately many of those events are invitation only. In lieu of this, we've rounded up a growing list of Basel events you're actually invited to, with a strong focus on fashion and fitness. We'll be updating the list as more events and galleries hit our radars, so keep checking back. More important than organizing your week is planning out your outfits, and we like to make that part easy for you.

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
