Art| @ArtBasel 2021 Gathers An Amazing Lineup At @PaceGallery

The renowned art festival known as Art Basel continues their world tour for 2021 with their next stop underway. Visitors will get a chance to embrace pieces from heavy hitters, from Pablo Picasso and Ellsworth Kelly, to Alexander Calder and Latifa Echakhch. We detail some of the highlighted designs below.

 Located at Pace Gallery, viewers will catch Jeff Koons‘ Gazing Ball (Veronese The Wedding at Cana), 2015–2021, a painting that continues on the artist’s “Gazing Ball” series, which pays respects to the legends of art history. In this painting, Koons has referenced Paolo Veronese‘s 16th Century masterpiece, The Wedding at Cana (1562–1563).

The original is housed in Paris’ Louvre museum and recounts the biblical tale of how Christ miraculously turned water into wine. As the central figure in the painting, Christ looks directly at the viewer — unphased by the opulence and bustle that surrounds him. Koons adds a distinct point of emphasis to Christ’s already central position, by adding an electric blue orb that reflects both the colors of the painting, along with that of the viewer themselves — leading to a dynamic interplay that allows one to participate within the dialogue of past and present. -HB

• Ok So Artist Jeff Koons & Italian yacht designer Ivana Porfiri went off with this custom yacht concept built for Dakis Joannou, Greek Industrialist. I can just picture them drawing this up while playing Kendrick Lamar‘s ‘M.a.a.d City‘ & heard the intro “Yacht, Yacht, Yacht!!!” & the rest was history! Lol, honestly this masterpiece is a true one of a kind design that many just dream about. Dakis actually gets to vacation in this!

• “Guilty” is her name & dropping jaws is her game. This 115-feet masterpiece is Koons largest project yet & places Koons in Art history for ever. The concept came from Camouflage from World War 1, & is geometrically the craziest design we at GoodGarbs has ever seen. The interior is equipped with alternating yellow rhombuses, pink triangles and blue polygons & plushly furnished by Radical Designs funiture & has four guest rooms that are 5star hotel worthy. Top level gives a “180 degree” view & has “Feelings” hanging in neon lights. The bedroom has that Austin Powers glow to it & the bottom level is set for a classic rave on water! Lets Just Say, Dakis stepped on this and said “We Made It“!
