Basel, Switzerland, June 21, 2015
I shoot out a single photo to you as a digital gift – a moment of meditation – and wish you a good Sunday and weekbegin.
Yesterday, I took this picture of a couple about to have lunch at Art Basel – the world’s largest art fair with almost 300 galleries from around the world each exhibiting their 10-15 best works.
Every artistic medium is represented: paintings, prints, sculpture, installations, video, multiples, photography etc. Overwhelmingly diverse – and commercial. In a week, art is sold for about US$ 3 billion! That said, there is no other place where so much brilliant contemporary art comes together.
Meanwhile, take a look at the new GlobalArt Magazine which I curate.
PS Thanks for all encouraging comments to and sharing of my “Shoot” mails.
