While of course you should always turn to our very own Stephanie Murg to spill the beans on the happenings as Art Basel continues in Miami, like with her couple of great posts from yesterday. But for a terrific secondary source, we highly recommend reading the on-the-ground reporting from Caroline Stanley over at the newly opened Flavorwire. Where else can you get the skinny on the major money art fair, with sightings and reports on people like Benicio Del Toro, Brooklyn Museum director Arnold Lehman, and seeing Julian Schnabel leading a crowd to go see a Grace Jones concert? Plus, if you’ve ever wanted to see Stuart Parr in a strange, all-white Yves Saint Laurent standing on a couch, clutching a sharp knife, here’s your chance. Go forth and learn how the other half of the art world lives.
