Alleged bank robber shot and killed by Miami Beach police on Alton Road.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — One woman stabbed another during a fight at world-famous Art Basel Miami Beach, causing at least one patron to think he was watching performance art.Siyuan Zhao, a 24-year-old student from New York, was immediately arrested following the incident which took place in front of dozens of art lovers at the Miami Beach Convention Center at an exhibit for artist Naomi Fisher.A man who reportedly tried to rob a Bank of America watch shot and killed by police on Saturday just blocks away from Art Basel, the annual art world gathering in the city. She’s also a fan of Cy Twombly. “I have a toe in the art world.” She also enjoys painting with Suri, her 9-year-old daughter with ex-husband Tom Cruise, but says dismissively “it’s just a hobby.

Miami Beach Police said just before the attack, Zhao was reportedly following the victim around the art gallery, bumping into her several times intentionally. We just have fun.” Holmes, who wore a red Azzedine Alaia dress and Manolo Blahnik heels, was among dozens of celebrities who descended on the prestigious art fair this week, including rocker Lenny Kravitz, who unveiled a photo exhibit, Alicia Keys, Eva Longoria, Ricky Martin and Leonardo DiCaprio. “Contrary to rumors, Khan is not playing the lead and will only be seen in a cameo,” a source from the film’s unit said, adding that it is a women-centric project with three male leads. When the victim finally confronted Zhao, without provocation, Zhao pulled out an exacto knife and stabbed the woman in her arm and shoulder. “We hear a scream and I thought it was part of the exhibit.

I’ve already been to Miami and back for a sixth consecutive visit, because the secret of winning at Art Basel is to get there early, if you’re actually interested in seeing the art. This will be the filmmaker’s second project as a director, after her critically and commercially successful movie English Vinglish, which released in 2012. The Miami Herald reports: The incident that followed, in which police officers confront and ultimately shoot the man as he stands before them, was caught on video by a bystander. Warning: the video is graphic, and it’s unclear what happened immediately before the video was shot, or what was said by police or the man holding the straight edge. Art Basel, in theory, is a blue-chip art fair that was founded in Basel, Switzerland, where art was bought and sold for several decades without much fanfare outside of the art world insiders focused on building coveted art collections.

The city — a gateway to Latin America — is lined with white sandy beaches and hotel pools, a tourism-friendly place that has a built-in scene for after-parties and fine dining. And even though it has become a popular luxury culture scene, it still manages to rub elbows with the real art world on occasion — a world that shows up to buy, sell, and see millions of dollars of paintings and sculptures. The robbery-turned-shooting unfolded under gray, drizzly skies in Miami Beach, taking some residents by surprise as they went about their day on the busy Alton Road thoroughfare. Two years ago, the sheer volume of after-party invites began to remind me of the raveland Miami became during the Winter Music Conference, circa 2000. These days, it takes a bit of effort and self-discipline to sift through the exhibitions in the midst of the celebrity smorgasbord, poolside DJ gigs, and giant ball of glittery traffic-jammed confusion.

Even the rich and famous get stuck in traffic, too. (Art Basel is ripe for takeover by hoverboards and electric scooters.) And yet for all the hassle, Miami Art Basel continues to grow each and every year because no one wants to miss out, but it’s so big that everyone misses out on something. You can find pop up exhibitions galore spread around town, like the native David Castillo Gallery in Wynwood and artist-run initiatives, including a panel about art and technology organized by FriendsWithYou, an art collective that created a virtual reality installation that debuted during Art Basel.
