In an attempt to answer the age-old question — Is it art or home decor? — I perused the halls of Art Basel Miami to see how galleries are serving the lifestyle needs of the rich and famous.
My apologies to those of you who may have seen these before on my Twitter feed (@hragv) but they’re too good not to compile in one place. Apologies for the low quality images since they were all taken with my camera phone.
First up, Ry Rocklen at Bernier/Eliades: carpet & tile shop or contemporary art?
Next, did Urban Outfitters just set up a booth at Art Basel or is Jorge Pardo auditioning to be their window dresser?
This one is a classic. I couldn’t tell if this booth was selling bookshelves, tiles, or Donald Judd knock-offs.*
And finally, I swear I’ve seen this mirror before in a midtown Manhattan hotel bathroom.*
