At the convention center, 250 top-shelf galleries from 29 countries representing North and Latin America, Europe, Africa, and Asia will exhibit artworks by more than 2,000 artists. You can find works by artists ranging from Andy Warhol to Kehinde Wiley under the big tent. Special sections will also feature performance art, video art, public projects, and an area showcasing upstart young galleries. Art lovers can expect a little of everything from museum-quality works costing millions of dollars to multiples from unknowns for a few hundred bucks. Today through Sunday, Basel turns the Magic City into a giant sprawling
art orgy slithering from South Beach to Wynwood and beyond with plenty of free keggers and Facebook invites to afterparties to keep the culture cramming civilized. For ticket
