David Bolger's Guide For Art Basel Newbies Skewers Dealers, Galleries and Snobs Alike

David Bolger
Attention Art Basel visitors: Name dropping always works!
​Miami Beach artist and City Hall gadfly David Bolger wants to make sure visitors attending Art Basel see it like an insider. So the 51-year-old former New Englander has illustrated a 21-page guide for Riptide to assist wannabe art snobs on how to distinguish a real urinal from one that is part of an art installation.

Bolger, who two years ago produced a cartoon newsletter skewering Miami Beach politicos, also subtly mocks Miami's guest list party culture and a few of the city's most prominent art collectors like Carlos and Rosa de la Cruz, Martin Marguiles, and the Rubells. On the last page, Bolger includes a note: "This is a work of art...It's sole purpose is to amuse. If in the process, anyone has been offended...all the better...No computers were used in this production...except perhaps to GOOGLE "Rubell Breakfast."
