Art Basel Photo Roundup

By | December 5th, 2011 | 2 Comments

It seems perfunctory to say “Thank God — It’s over.” But after a week of non-stop art intake, fair hopscotch, traffic and parking headaches, thrill-numbing celebrity sightings (James Murphy has almost certainly cloned himself several times over), reality-bending EVA & ADELE sightings, upstream crowd swimming, sponsored DJ sets, impatient open bar queues, and hearing the word “Diddy”, one can’t help but feel a measure of gratitude for the transience of Art Basel Miami Beach and all its attendant hoopla. Which isn’t to say we won’t miss it a few days from now. In fact, ABMB withdrawal may already be setting in, as I woke up this morning with an unprecedented craving for caviar-and-créme-fraiche-crowned blinis. In any case, here are some of our favorite photos taking around town during the baffling Basel behemoth.
