The best moments from Art Basel Miami Beach

Solo Artist Demont Pinder paints at the #REVOLTBlendedCultures event.
The festival of wacky glamour that is 2014's Art Basel Miami Beach came to a close Sunday.
One of the highlights of the event was pop singer Miley Cyrus, who smoked a joint onstage and jiggled her disco nipple pasties in a characteristically scandalous performance at the Raleigh Hotel in South Beach.
Some of the artwork reflected the ongoing unrest and racial tension in the U.S., as well as our growing addiction to technology. Art Basel's top viral moment? Usher charging his phone in the vagina of a performance artist.
Check out our gallery of notable moments and artwork from the star-studded weeklong art fair.
