Red Bull Curates: The Road to Basel tour, goes off
The Los Angeles arts community rolled out to West Hollywood’s Lab Art to support 21 featured artists in the first stop of Red Bull Curates: The Road to Basel tour.
What is Art Basel?
Art Basel-Miami Beach is a major art fair held every year in December. Attracting hundreds of galleries from all over the world, Art Basel has become a mandatory stop for art dealers, collectors, curators and art aficionados to check out the latest in contemporary art, network and, obviously, party on the beach.
Hipsters, fashionistas, creatives and art ooglers were all part of the line that stretched down the long La Brea block. Around 1,900, bounced the beats of local favorite, DJ Morse Code, as they perused the canvas wrapped Red Bull coolers and placed their votes via text message.
Learn more about the winners -- Gregory Siff, Hans Haveron and Lydia Emily—who will be shipped off to Miami Beach to participate in a group show in December.
If you dig these artists and you’d like to learn more about them and the Red Bull Curates: Road to Basel tour, keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming documentary featuring these artists… and just to wet your appetite, check out this pilot episode from a stop off in San Francisco last November.
