Art Adventure – 20 Years Of Art Basel !
The First Art Basel was scheduled for 2001. It was cancelled due to 9/11. When I my journalistic career took me to Miami in 2002 , I was privileged to attend the first one. Admission was $ 5 and we went in our bathing suits. Fast forward to 20 years later, including in the video above. It’s a very different scene now.
Back in 2002 some Argentine friends had picked up a couple Picassos and had them propped up on the floor of their Venetian Island house. Now there don’t seem to be many Picassos.
Angel Of Anger.
Big and Beautiful !
Devil In Disguise.
A Deathly Dig.
A Wall Streeter On Vacation.
Since 2002 – only one shaw did not happen – in the COVID lockdowns of 2020.
All Hail To The Great Helmsman !
We wished I picked up a Warhol for $2000 back in 1987 ,just before he died.
