Yeah, yeah, we know, ART BASEL ended over a week ago, but if you had the kinda time we did down there, you'd just be getting around to putting up your final recap too. After speedwalking through almost 15 different shows, we've got a quick lookback on some of the pieces that caught our eye most. Some of the names might be missing, but after seven days of art, it all just started to blur together. One thing we can say about the art trade show that is Basel, it was far and away the best one yet HAVE A LOOK:
