A Bookish Look at Art Basel 2013 June 13, 2013 – Posted in: Books and Art, Conceptual Art, Installation

Art Basel is the world’s premier international gathering  for Modern and contemporary art. The leading art galleries from all over the globe converge on its shows held in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong each year.
Fortunately for those who can’t make it to Art Basel 2013, which begins today in Basel, Switzerland, Artsy gives us a front row seat to  the action.
