Scene and Heard: The Art Basel 2018 Recap

  • Share

We did it. Another Art Basel in the bag. This year, Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel played host to some of the best events of the week. NYC gallery The Hole blew through for a night, bringing with them a performance by Young Thug. Make Believe, our transportive nightlife outfit at SIXTY LES, hosted a multi-day pop-up jam-packed with sets from DJs like Dude Skywalker and parties hosted with House of Yes, Pink Mammoth, and Apt 200. Cyndi Ramirez‘s Chillhouse delivered, well, some daytime chill in the form of blended bevs and manis.

And the art! We can’t forget about the art.

Suzy Kellems Dominik‘s “INVISIBLE” sculptures held court in the Nautilus lobby. She was in good company. Kenny Schacter made his presence known with wrapped cars and columns. Vik Muniz kept it loose with a showing from his Handmade series, brought to Miami by Galeria Nara Roesler. Even the famed Fab 5 Freddy — armed with glittering, pop-worthy works — dropped in for a show. Outside, installation honors went to Louise Bonnett (the pool) and David Salle (the awning). But enough of us chattering on. See for yourself below.
