The 17th edition of Art Basel in Miami took place the first week of December of this year. For those of you who ignore what this globally famous event is, here’s the scope: Art Basel is a for-profit –privately organized and managed- international art fair held in Basel, Switzerland, Hong Kong, and Miami Beach. The event is a one-of-a-kind platform for artists and galleries to show and sell their work; being so incredibly famous it attracts hoards of international spectators and yes! celebrities.
More than 4,000 artists and over 200 of the most important galleries around the world displayed their work. We are talking about the very best in paintings, photography, sculptures, digital art etc.
Among the highlights of the 2018 edition is the outstanding work by feminist pioneers Ellen Cantor and Judy Chicago, the amazing performative installation at the Grand Ballroom by choreographer Barbara Foulkes and Abraham Cruz and some exhilarating discussions included in the Conversations program by Mari Spirito.
The work of Simon Leigh was unanimously praised. Her sculptures, which explore the subjective concerns of black women through the medium of ceramics started back in the early 1990s and now have set her in the center of the art world’s radar. Another one of the favorites was Zina Saro-Wiwa which utilized her radical video series to analyze subjects such as racism through the lens of food.
Worldwide known celebrities were lured to the fair to party, perform and enjoy the art. Cuba Gooding Jr. was spotted taking selfies, Alicia Keys and Serena Williams were the stars at the No Commission Event held by Bacardi and Bono attended one of the silent auctions. Of course, Young Thug attended the exhibit named: “Young Thug as Paintings”. The entire week was about deep matters, lots of fun and of course, art. Next year’s edition is scheduled for December 5-8 of 2019, if you missed it this year, you can’t say we didn’t give you a heads up! Cheers!
