MIAMI BASEL DAY 3 – Business

Dear Shaded Viewers,

unfortunately I had no time to do any drawings for this post, but there will be enough artwork…

Day 3 – Art Basel Miami Beach.

In the lobby, I meet by chance "Useless" editor and publisher, talking with one very special bookseller from New York city:

The Fair: Two hundred galleries from all over the world. Trying to sell the most commercial and published contemporary art pieces to big collectors from all over the U.S. and Latin America. Let’s have a quick look at some prices…


The little Pope by Maurizio Cattelan was sold at Marian Goodman gallery for 450,000 $


The tattoed pork skin by Wim Delvoye was sold by Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin for 72.000$


This photo of Matthew Barney’s "Drawing Restraint" movie was sold by L.A. gallery Regen Projects for 74,000$


Still at Regen Projects, this photograph by Gillian Wearing (a self-portrait disguised as her grandmother) was sold for 60,000$


An Andy Warhol "Mao" sold for 2,200,000$ at NY-based L&M Gallery…


This Yinka Shonibare photo of the series "Un Ballo in Maschera" (which is VERY Marie-Antoinette) is on sale at Stephen Friedman Gallery (from London) at 5,500
