Art Basel Buzz

The Art Basel Miami Beach Art Positions (aka The Container Shows) line-up is up. Always interested in art and cuisine coming together in surreal ways, my curiosity was piqued by the following installation.
For his installation and opening performance Raul de Nieves (born 1983) will throw an ice cream party at Newman Popiashvili Gallery (New York) titled “Ice Cream You Scream We all Scream for Ice Cream.” The container will be shaped like a large banana-split sundae sculpture from the outside. Inside will be an installation with sculptures and paintings. Guests are invited to eat ice cream.
Hope it's locally-sourced and organic.

Meanwhile, prominent art critics are predicting art world doom.
