Also, she reveals if the fair was well attended by participants outside of Europe. Additionally, Naomi describes the level of sales at the fair this year and identifies some of the most noteworthy ones. Then, she discusses a change in Art Basel exhibitor rules that magnified the divide between younger and more established artists that we are witnessing in the market.
