Art Basel 2010 was a huge success. I got to enjoy (some) art, (many) parties, and even had to work in between it all. It took a good week to recover from the madness and cram for final exams, but it was worth every minute- I had a blast. Besides brunching with Russell Simmons, Serena Williams, and Kelly Rowland, walking in the biggest bash of the weekend for a YSL show by Vogue (with the aforementioned seated front row along with Gerard Butler, Emilio Estefan, Christian Louboutin, Daisy Fuentes...), I was enjoying musical performances by Metric, Mark Ronson, N.E.R.D., Twin Shadow, Rye Rye, A-Trak & Dave 1. Below are some photos from the week's events and some bizarre art I saw during Scope Art Show. My personal favorite was a pop-up Sanrio shop celebrating its 50th anniversary with a gift shop, art gallery, and tattoo parlor with free tattoos from an LA artist-- took me back to Japan and all the cuteness.
These huge pink snails were all over Miami Beach- for sale as art.
