Say her name with flowers on your tongue. That’s what Breonna Taylor’s sister wants during Miami’s art week from people visiting an augmented reality garden created to honor her late sister. “Breonna’s Garden" commemorates the 26-year-old emergency medical worker who was fatally shot by police raiding her apartment in Louisville, Kentucky last year. The exhibit is a reminder of the transformational power of art, even amid the opulent celebrity parties that surround the prestigious Art Basel events. It can be viewed in person through Sunday next to the Perez Art Museum or through an online app. Artist Lady PheOnix created the project with Taylor's sister Ju’Niyah Palmer.

The official Art Basel show is back in Miami with all its eccentric glory, a dizzying list of celebrity attendees and dozens of spin-off shows already generating buzz, including a 10-year-old child painter and a $4 million Banksy sale. Fashion continues to play a prominent role with Dior hosting its first US show here in 2019 and Louis Vuitton followed suit on Tuesday. Celebrity sightings around town include Kim Kardashian, Hailey Bieber, Camila Cabello, Martha Stewart and Bella Hadid. Alicia Keys, Lizzo, Meek Mill, Diplo and Cardi B are among the performers. And Miami's DJ Khaled is coating chicken wings in 24k gold and edible diamonds. 

Travelers through Milan’s main train station can take a break this week among reproductions of murals by street artist Banksy. “The Word of Banksy -- The Immersive Experience” opens Thursday in the Mosaics Gallery, on the rail level of Milan’s monumental Central Station. It features some of his best-known pieces, such as “Nola,” created in 2008 out of sympathy with the people of hurricane-battered New Orleans. The exhibition is unauthorized, but the curator notes it’s also been unchallenged so far.

Singer-songwriter Alicia Keys has teased some of her new material at an intimate performance in Miami where she also guided a few hundred people through a 10-minute meditation. Keys asked concert goers gathering for an immersive exhibit on the eve of Art Basel Miami Beach to pick either the relaxing piano versions the Grammy-winning artist is best known for, or the more-produced tracks with a different beat for the same songs. Keys headlined an experiential art show at Superblue Miami, appearing as one of the main performers trekking down to Miami for the international art fair that runs from Thursday to Saturday. Her new album comes out on Dec. 10.

An 11-person collective from Belfast that aims to transcend Northern Ireland’s political and religious divides has won the U.K.’s prestigious Turner Prize for art. The Array Collective took the 25,000 pound ($33,000) prize on Wednesday for “The Druithaib’s Ball,” a recreation of a traditional Irish shebeen, or speakeasy full of references to 100 years of Northern Ireland history. Prize organizers said the collective’s work tackles “urgent social and political issues affecting Northern Ireland with humor, seriousness and beauty.” Named for 19th-century landscape painter J.M.W. Turner, the award was founded in 1984 and helped make stars of potter Grayson Perry, shark-pickling artist Damien Hirst and filmmaker Steve McQueen.
