Art fairs, especially when you get on the circuit like we have been over the past few years, can be overwhelming. Art Basel Hong Kong is no different. There is a ton to see, lots of new galleries to read up on, maybe some similar artists, but mostly this is a crash course in over 50 Asian galleries that we didn't have first-hand experience with. I have a few policies... one, follow the little kids around for a few booths. They tend to get the most excited and set a bar. Two, find the artist that pops up the most around the fairs... this year, Nara and Yayoi Kusama win the award.
