stolen art makes for good art


ok, so i am a little late but thought it was still worth noting. august makes for a dull month - and this art...is well actually interesting (and with a curated theme!?) despite the hoards of shitty art out there at the moment!

"The Thrill Of Collecting was an exhibtion in the Uovo Open Office in Basel. Initiated 3
days before the opening by Cyprien Gaillard, Tobias Madison and Emanuel Rossetti it
featured 17 international artists. Only artworks that were stolen were allowed into the
show. The title was taken from an AXA Art Insurance Programm whose advertising sign
was stolen from their booth in the collectors lounge of Art Basel."
