You should catch them while you can. Some will go on to fame and collectability and live their lives surrounded by floozies, sycophants, and fabulous romantic decadence. Others will perish, battering themselves against the indifferent edifice of the capitalist art establishment until their bodies are broken and their dreams all withered and dead. Only now are they all together, bright-eyed and idealistic, happy just to show you some art and flattered if you choose to buy some. Art Basel it isnt. Awesome, it is.
