Art Basel stages art shows for high quality modern and contemporary art and is sited annually in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong. Each show has participating galleries, exhibition sectors, artworks and parallel programming produced in collaboration with the host city’s local institutions.
So there was a kerfuffle at the show and bad things happened…
one woman pulled an X-Acto knife and stabbed the other in the arms and neck.
Some patrons thought the stabbing was a performance art presentation. Others believed the police tape cordoning an area of the convention center was part of an art installation.
Kind of says something about the performing arts when one woman getting stabbed by another is thought to be a performance.
