  • Art Basel Wrap Up, Part One

    Of all the hurdles to get there- scrutinous press registration, despotic bouncers, strict dress codes, and a transit system that makes Baltimore look like Tokyo- escaping the airport is always the most frustrating. Labyrinthine warrens of moving sidewalks lead to shuttles to trains to buses. The terminal is packed with departing locals openly agape at the spectacle of arrivals' pale faces, dark clothes, and colorful hair. Every December, the art world decamps frigid Berlin, New York, London, and even- increasingly- Baltimore. Its denizens have arrived at MIA, but won't arrive in Miami until they navigate the hermetically-sealed airport. At every window, stubborn Florida sunshine battles the ubiquitous air conditioning, teasing arrivals with the promise of warmth outside. Slowly the heiress from Moscow sheds her fur coat. The artist from London fondles the keys to an ostentatious car (rented for ironic effect) with a bemused grin. The least glamorous of us make our way to the far-off airport bus.
