The Way to Glide Through Art Basel Just Like an Art World Princess Photos

"A beautiful first day in Basel."

“A beautiful first day in Basel.”

Colby Jordan

“Wearing my beloved Prada sandals on the tram en route to the Beyeler Foundation, in the Swiss city of Riehen (near Basel) and also made by Renzo Piano. Always my first stop!”

Colby Jordan

Kopierer, e; Kopierer, a; Kopierer, telephone, 2010. Three of my favourite functions in the extensive Wolfgang Tillmans series at the Beyeler.”

Colby Jordan

“A gallery of 10 of the most spectacular and significant Andy Warhol paintings, available from the Daros collection.”

Colby Jordan

“A fun surprise running into one of my beloved Picasso sculptures, Baboon and Young, 1951, at the Kunstmuseum. A quintessential example of Picasso’s strong use of found items; the monkey’s head consists of 2 children’s cars, the tail from a car spring, so her ears from cup handles, and the stomach is throw away from a large jug.”

Colby Jordan

“A display of 15 groupings among the most densely significant desks, lamps and chairs, curated by Thom Browne. The New York-based designer staged a presentation using 15 youthful Swiss art pupils dressed head-to-toe in Thome Browne finery. One by one they entered the space and stopped beside a desk, and then hauled in unison to Start sketching–part fashion show, part performance art. “

Colby Jordan

“Gallerist Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn within her booth at the Plan Miami/Basel fair. This year she showed pieces by the English designer Max Lamb, whose furniture is made from foam sprayed in bronze, and gold jewellery by artist Lucas Samaras.”

Colby Jordan

“Inspired by Jean Royere’s ‘Liane’ coat hanger at Jacques Lacoste’s booth at the design fair. “

Colby Jordan

“This spectacular Ettore Sottsass tower cabinet at Giustini/Stagetti Galleria O. Roma was my favourite bit from the plan fair. Sottsass created this special cabinet in the 60’s for your daughter of an engineer he had been working together to develop the ‘Valentine Portable Typewriter’.”

Colby Jordan

“The holy grails of style items. From top, seats and book instance by Ettore Sottsass; Lockheed Lounge and Orgone Chair by Marc Newson; seats by Shiro Kuramata.”

Colby Jordan

“An original ‘Barcelona Chair’, 1929 (abandoned), and ‘Tugendhat Chair’, 1930 (correct), by Mies van der Rohe.”

Colby Jordan

“The highlight of my trip to Basel was actually a trip to the Vitra Campus just across the border from Switzerland in Weil am Rein, Germany. Vitra, the Swiss family-owned furniture firm, has built up an impressive roster of buildings by renowned contemporary architects, starting in 1981, according to an expansive plot of land. This factory building, constructed in 1989, is just one of several structures on the campus by Frank Ghery–a great representation of his early aesthetic.”

Colby Jordan

“The most recent addition to the campus would be the newest Vitra Design Museum, which started in 2016, designed by Basel-based architects Herzog & de Meuron. The museum houses the entire Vitra furniture and archive collection, over 10,000 bits”

Colby Jordan

“A close-up of this beautiful inverted brick on the Herzog & de Meuron building, a trademark material of the Korean architects.”

“An interior photo of Tadao Ando’s Conference Pavillion, 1993, with suspended Noguchi light sculptures. The space is a fantastic listing of multi-purpose rooms and hidden alcoves with a solid continuation of outdoor and indoor space.”

Colby Jordan

“The mirror in the elevator at the Three Kings Hotel in Basel is the best place to get a shameless selfie. Here, with my shark telephone, and a prom gown.”

“Ultimately, it’s art fair moment! I adore these psychedelic candle pictures of renowned artwork dealer Bruno Bischofberger along with his wife Yoyo as viewed through the mind of Swiss artist Urs Fischer. In the Gagosian Gallery booth, and seated just below one, black-and-white electric seat painting by Andy Warhol.”

Colby Jordan

“Among my favourite bits in the fair was this great Memory Ware Flat by the late Mike Kelley. The very small stones and buttons will be the ideal backdrop for a photo. I’m in a Balenciaga top, Celine skirt, and a charm necklace which my grandmother gave me. She also spent 60 years amassing the charms, each with a specific narrative and meaning.”

“I love Man Ray, and that I LOVE Luisa Casati, therefore what might be better compared to a Man Ray photograph of Luisa Casati?! The Italian heiress and style icon photographed by Man Ray in 1935.”

Colby Jordan

“My other favourite work at the fair was this beautiful painting, BRAID, 1969, by Italian artist Domenico Gnoli at the Luxembourg and Dayan booth.”

Colby Jordan

“… How about ONE Fontana egg making in curry form! That’s what I call having your cake and eating it, too!”

Colby Jordan

“The notion ending to a few-art filled times in Basel: an ideal, picturesque cheeseburger.”
