ABMB: Recap – Basel Castle

By - Thursday, December 19th, 2013

(Photo by iWally) The fairs and surrounding events of this year’s Art Basel were bigger than ever, the fourth year of Basel Castle was no exception. A single day excursion of art and music curated by ABV gallery chief Greg Mike and independent creative scene makers at The Overthrow further blurred the traditional notions of what Art Basel is all about. Entertainment for attendees included live painting by Nychos, Skinner, Jeremyville, Meggs, L’Amour Supreme, Greg Mike, Madsteez, Nosego,Angry Woebots, Pale Horse, Alex Yanes and Ben Frost held in various art corners throughout the park. The murals and installations provided a nice balance of aesthetic stimulus to go with the main stage’s musical talent including dj sets by SBTRKT and Gesaffelstein as well as live performances by Chance the Rapper, Brodinski, Travi$ Scott, Been Trill, Heroes x Villans.
