Two years ago this month, I tagged along with Marilu to the Venice Biennale and Art Basel. It was my first time to experience the contemporary art world's version of a Star Trek convention. Actually, I've never experienced a Star Trek convention either, but I'm quite sure that the art crowd was better dressed, and the location was prettier. There was art everywhere, and in between trying to photograph around town for my own stock, I was able to take in giant batches of it. The snappy art lover, above, was found at Volta, the alternative show in Basel.
