My Highlights from Art Basel 2014

Simon Castets — Director of the Swiss Institute, New York, and cofounder of 89plus — selected a number of his favorites from the exhibition: Daniel Buren, Kaspar Muller, Sarah Ortmeye, Andy Warhol, Gary Kuehn, Christian Holstad and Tom of Finland. Here's what he had to say about Tom:

"These works are starting to be shown more and more in the art context, a long deserved recognition for someone whose visual vocabulary has participated so crucially in the representation of the male body."
