Tom Austin for Street Weekly: Razzle Basel: Last weekend, debauchery, grotesque forms, and social criticism were on display. And the art was pretty interesting, too.
Carlos Suarez de Jesus for Street Weekly: Post-Basel depression or delirium? With the art fair behemoth in our rearview mirror, it's time to take a look at who made it to the sunny side of the street -- and who got kicked to the curb.
Miami New Times: Current Art Shows. Last week's big Basel deal is here.
Megan Kenny for the Broward/Palm Beach New Times: Artbeat.
Michael Mills for the Broward/Palm Beach New Times: Finders Keepers: MoCA's film and video exhibit lifts found "artifacts" to the realm of visual art.
Gary Schwan for the Palm Beach Post: Chatworth exhibit reveals Devonshire inheritance.
I rewrote the comments form, and feel fairly certain that it will not go nuts upon implementation. Please let me know about any probs. Oh, and I think the anti-double-post script works now.

Packing up my computer now, hold down the fort guys. I'll be offline till I get to NY and get some dsl service setup there. Asta luego.

Art basel seems to have taken its place alongside the Rio Carnival and Mardi Gras as a world class blowout. I see no reason not to see it as a good thing if zillions of people come down and spend a lot of money and have a good time. We just have to understand that art is the pretext, not the substance.
Ars longa, vita brevis - very roughly translated: Basel leaves; art doesn't.

From the Suarez de Jesus article in Street:
"The out-of-towners predicted we in Miami would suffer from 'post-Basel depression.' I don't think so: Miami's got some great shows through the end of the year, and a killer wave of excitement to ride into the next one."
Given that the year between Basel II and Basel III was quite depressing, unless I can get some specifics to back up the very optimistic claim above, I'll believe it only if and when I see it. What great shows? What killer wave of excitement? Is this some sort of covert operation?

Franklin, the Sholis thread is not allowing comments because the system thinks it's over two weeks old. Look into it.

Thank you for eating from the blood-stained basket and being a part of the peace
at the Miami Women's Club on Saturday. Also, for noting my avoidance of edges
and corners... hmmm... you left much room for thought.

Franklin eats from blood stained baskets? Please explain Cat, or you Franklin, are you going all ritualistic cult on us here, now that the holidays are upon us?

Dammit, now I have to start squelching those Satanism rumors again...
The above is an off-topic message from a student regarding her work.
