post basel

December 08 2014. 001 (66)

so basel came and went and with it, so did all the people and the traffic

but, a lot of the art stayed and we are fortunate miamians for that

every year i find myself doing more pre and post basel than during basel itself

this year was no exception

i don’t want to come across as an art snob but, i feel like when basel started twelve years ago, not only was it much smaller (giving everyone a chance to see most of the art), it also felt like all the art was hand picked

the art felt selective and different

today’s basel is a free for all that has turned into a huge art circus where everyone is an artist, an art collector and a gallery owner

it is sensory overload and way too commercial

anyway, that’s just the way i feel and i am going to leave it at that

it is not a basel rant

one of the great things about basel though is that we get to see friends who live far and who we don’t get to see often

like Kenny

who Lily loves and looks forward to seeing every year

fortunately Kenny hung around and we were able to see him in action post basel

happy friday friends!

have a great weekend
