Art Basel Miami is when over 80,000 people descend to Southern Florida to view art, buy art, and of course, socialize and party. It has become a type of festival in and of itself with the city turning into a living gallery for a week featuring art almost everywhere you turn. From art shows to galleries to events as well as activations, it’s literally non-stop! Of course, where there is an influx of culture, there will be black people. We rounded up a gallery of our favorite looks from celebs, artists, and art aficiandos at Art Basel Miami 2018.

REVOLT, in conjunction with sponsors LIFEWTR, SIMPLE Mobile and CÎROC Ultra Premium Vodka delivered the highly anticipated REVOLTHouse series to Wynwood, Miami with an exclusive, upscale gallery experience, featuring live art, food, music and bespoke cocktails. The best part though was when Miami’s very own, Trina, performed.
