Over the Weekend - Art Basel, Vanguard, Panda Bear and MSTRKRFT
If we don't see another piece of artwork any time soon, we can count ourselves lucky. Yes, our eyes are sore from the excessive visual stimulus. Art Basel brought with it plenty of fairs, celebrities and parties, so if you stayed home this weekend, what the hell were you thinking?
But just in case you have a blurred memory of Basel, here is what you probably attended but don't remember over the weekend:
Art Basel Miami Beach at Miami Beach Convention Center
Miami Beach Convention Center played host to the real Art Basel, where the best galleries in the world attempted to sell pieces to potential buyers. Early word is that sales were, as expected, less than spectacular. Click here to view the full slideshow.
Gen Art Vanguard at Charcoal Studios
Gen Art once again held its Vanguard opening party during Art Basel. However, this year, the party moved from South Beach to Charcoal Studios in Wynwood. We spotted tennis star Venus Williams and musician Jason Mraz among the crowd of people. Click here to view the full slideshow.
Art Damage with Panda Bear and No Age at Karu & Y
Shame on your Nike! You lied to us and our readers when you said the Art Damage party at Karu & Y featuring Panda Bear and No Age was invite-only yet there wasn't a list in sight we showed up at the door. Click here to read our full review of the show.
MSTRKRFT at Heathrow Lounge
We love MSTRKRFT. We love Heathrow Lounge. We just aren't sure if we love them together. Click here to read our full review of the show.
Prefuse 73, Eliot Lipp and PG 13 at Heathrow Lounge
We do appreciate Heathrow's commitment to booking leftfield acts and Sunday night was no difference as Prefuse 73, Eliot Lipp and PG 13 took over the decks. Click here to read our full review of the show.
