ART: Art Basel, Not the Miami One, the One in Basel
by Raymond Herrera
Since 1970, leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa show the work of artists, in the annual “Olympics” of art, Art Basel. Second only to it’s sister festival in Miami, it features over 300 galleries and 4,000 artists: from Modern art masters, to the avant-garde. Galleries present an array of paintings, sculpture, photography, videos, prints, installations, and performance art. There is something to do every day including symposiums, films, and artist talks. There are also satellite events in the surrounding area. The lucky ones who get to Basel Switzerland for Art Basel 2013 this week will get to see what we have to look forward to in December in Miami. As we get in gear ourselves for the Sunshine State’s version, we look forward to the coverage of the new things we didn’t see in Hong Kong, and hopefully another Riff Raff review.
Some exhibits we are looking forward to:
Tuesday, June 11, and Wednesday, June 12 (by invitation only)
Wednesday, June 12, 3pm to 8pm (by invitation only)
Thursday, June 13, 11am to 7pm Friday, June 14, 11am to 7pm Saturday, June 15, 11am to 7pm Sunday, June 16, 11am to 7pm
