Is it December already? Traditionally eggnog and mistletoe dominate this month, but, for New York’s art worlders, champagne, beaches and fine art have become synonymous with this time of year thanks to a Swiss art fair.
Art Basel originated in the strategically placed city of Basel in 1970, but the Miami edition wasn’t born until 2002. The concept belonged to a previous director named Lorenzo Rudolf but his successor, Sam Keller, was instrumental in turning this once-insular trade fair into the global lifestyle brand that it is today.
