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.
All over town there are other events such as the much less elitist SCOPE and, for the first time, Photo Basel. Will share my impressions and pictures soon.
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.
