BASEL – A mammoth contemporary

BASEL – A mammoth contemporary art fair. A pleasant scattering of familiar faces and new (and old) work by favorite artists. And tons of work by artists I don’t really care for. A surprise DJ/friend from NYC turning up at a gallery dinner/party. Drivng down the tram-only lanes of the road, thereby frightening my euro passengers nearly to death. A great crew from the uber-art magazine, Frieze. Getting magazines –not just flyers–under the windshield wipers of my car. Favorite cover story from Art Investor magazine: “Die Big Spenders.” (note: the magazine’s in German. I imagine the German “Die” jokes wear pretty thin pretty quickly if you spend any time here.)
