Better known as the "Olympics of the art world," the mammoth art convention that is the real ART BASEL, as in Basel Switzerland, not Miami, was in full effect last week in the land of money and chocolate. Luckily, our international man of mystery MISTER G was on the spot to take in the debauchery and bring us a glimpse of some of the exhibition's greatest hits. Also on display at this year's Basel—now in its 38th year—was NIKE's aesthetic celebration of the checkered ball in the form of "ART/OF/FOOTBALL," a user generated content exhibition curated in conjunction with SHOWstudio as part of Basel's DESIGN/MIAMI fair.
