Orange Crush at Art Basel

Savvy Spice Dale Janee Fashion Blogger

‘If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.’ -John F. Kennedy

I’ve never been particularly artistic, although I have been called ‘a real piece of work‘ in the past. However, over the years my art appreciation has grown from tagging along with friends to art museums in San Francisco to this year at Art Basel! Art Basel has become the ‘premiere platform’ for the world’s top artists to show off their modern and contemporary art. It’s also going on in Hong Kong and Miami Beach coming up in December. Here’s a quick tour of Art Basel 2014 with some pieces that caught my attention in my orange on orange matching set I just found at Zara…

Dale Janee Savvy Spice fashion blogger Art Basel

<The Day Started at the House of Ruinart celebrating its champagne House since 1729. This art piece is by Georgia Russell especially for the event which will travel around to the other shows.>

<Russell, the young Scottish visual artist  is known for using the paper of old books to cut which she sculpts with a scalpel before precision cutting her art (aka – this piece must have taken A LOT of time) >

Art Basel Savvy Spice Ruinart

<After a couple glasses of Ruinart champagne, it was time to hit the show which would take hours or days to see everything>

Art Basel fashion blogger Dale Janee Christopher Walken

<There was photography with some very familiar faces by artist Jablonka Galerie>

Eat Art Art Basel Savvy Spice

<There was art with lights, mirrors, and everything you could think of>

Art Basel food court

<This was the fancy food court in the center of the event. Unfortunately, I haven’t acquired a taste yet for Swiss veal white sausage which is very popular to serve, especially at events>

Blah Blah Blah Art Basel Savvy Spice

<‘Blah, Blah, Blah’ by artist Mel Bochner. The overall oil painting comes in 8 pieces>

<Loved this one!>

20.000 Bullet Shells Savvy Spice fashion blog

<This piece of art was a room of bullet shells all over the floor called ‘20.000 Gunshells‘ by artist Matias Faldbakken. You had to walk through the bullet shells and seeing and hearing the sound of them below people’s feet was actually a little creepy and just reminded me of the non-stop tragedies of gun violence in the US>

Nothing Is Permanent Art Basel

 <I thought this piece was inspirational>

<’Dolphin‘ by Jeff Koons – the mirror polished stainless steel was my FAVORITE piece of the day!>

Thanks for coming along and highly recommend Art Basel if you ever get the chance to go! Do you enjoy art shows? Also, maybe it’s all the ‘Orange is the New Black‘ talk, but I am loving the citrus shade this summer. Here’s a few of my ‘Orange Crush’ looks below.

    Looks so interesting and fun. Very pretty outfit for such an arty occasion!

  13. Diva In Me says:

    The 20k Gunshell’s picture is interesting. I’m sure it gets tricky trying not to step and slip on the gun shells. Yea, I heard of the recent gun tragedy violence in US and I felt sad for the victims.
