Yvonne Lambert in Paris has a crackling solo show right this minute for self-described South African 'aesthetic terrorist" Kendell Geers. Since Geers have been showing in high profile venues since 1994, it stands to reason that his is an audacious body of work. He tackles the very pungent themes of fear, danger, sex and the desensitization to violence that say, the Team Gallery kids love to fondle. But TI loves the graphic authority that Geers brings to his idea of transgression. If anything of his floats your way at Miami Basel, its a must nab. Or you could wait until his solo show continues onto The Baltic Center For Contemporary Art in England (it closes at Lambert on Dec 8th) where the Baltic's book shop will boast Geers's new monograph "Irrespektiv",

Wow. The Art Basel driven super-convergence of art and fashion and music and money has started already in Miami. Your South Beach chapter of The Hiss Squad is reporting sightings already of Donna Karan and Bruce Weber with equally reliable sources assuring that tonight's private vernissage of the booths will see Brad Pitt mingling amongst the billionaires. In any case the kind folks at Flavorpill asked us to let all the Miami bound TI's out there know that they're joining forces with Aquabooty's infamous "Fuck Art, Let's Dance" bash at The Pawn Shop Lounge on Sat the 8th. Dropping it East Coast style will be DJ legend Danny Krivit while on the soulful West Coast tip will be Harvey. Top of the bill for the TI's will be lo-fi art rockers Japanther. But its a full night (9pm to 5am), as the Flavorpill mailer states, there'll also be the Bilingual avant-pop duo Something in Spanish that " fuse elements of exotic lounge, experimental electronic, and free jazz. And Ghostly International's Sam Valenti IV, along with Miami's own DHM and Lust4house, brings in plenty of turntable support. It's all for a great cause, too — a portion of the admission price goes to charity: water to help bring clean water to African countries." Looking forward to sweating it for a good cause.

What a boom time this week will prove to be for The Rubell Family and their collection. With almost the entire art world in their backyard, what's an art dynasty to do but play the part of gracious hosts. Here are a few must do events for the upcoming week. The barbecue you already have sussed out, no?
