Cool Hunting Video Presents: Art Basel Miami Beach 2006, Part Two
The second in our two-part look at this year's Art Basel Miami Beach
The little sister to the 37 year-old fair in Basel, in just five years Art Basel Miami Beach has established itself as a major international art fair—albeit a slightly wilder, more social version than the others. We decided to use the popularity of the fair and the many other fairs and events happening at the same time to look at the current art market and the roles of the painters, collectors and gallerists involved. In this episode, NADA director Heather Hubbs, art collector Marvin Friedman (who's been involved with Art Basel since it started in Miami), artist and Florida resident James Rosenquist, German gallerist Rudiger Lange and the creative duo known as Friends With You, all weigh in with unique points of view about the fair and their roles in it.
