Last night auntie K, Lily and I (if you are wondering where Will is, he is away on business until monday 🙁 ) went to the design district and well… I think Lily was already a bit Baseled out from the night before.
We started out at uncle Oli’s Swamp Space where this year he has some fun kissing booths.
Right across the street was Rainbow City which looked like great fun however, due to N.E.R.D performing last night, the line was HUGE so we didn’t get to go in.
We walked around a bit and did some gallery hopping.
There was a mix of everything as always. Some bad art but for the most part there was some really wonderful art.
I was really blown away by Chambliss Giobbi and Jorge Santos in particular. Their work is AMAZING!!
Lily hung in there a bit (cranky at times) and then it was time to head home.
Lily had her first Basel experience last night and what a great night it was!!
At the hotel W (by far my favorite hotel on the beach at the moment. it is fabulous!!), she saw her first Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, George Condo, Damien Hirst, Kenny Scharf and she also took a much needed power nap.
She saw her first live concert. Metric rocked!
And….. she met Perry Farrell!!!!! 🙂
Yup, we caught him at the Townhouse Hotel on his way out.
He was more than happy to chit-chat with us a bit and even pose for a picture with Lily.
At the National hotel we were blown away by Miguel Paredes’s art. I think his was Lily’s favorite since his art is super bright, the eyes are huge and there were lots of birds.
