About the Book
There’s more to the art world than auctions and appetizers. Behind the serious museum walls, one arts reporter has a sense of humor and she isn’t afraid to share it in this comedic romp through the art world. Featuring 30 short stories, Nadja Sayej plows through a food review of the Venice Biennale, butterfly kisses Cate Blanchett and talks performance art with Salma Hayek Oh and is it ‘biennial’ or ‘biennale?’ Nevermind that, where's the hor d'oeuvres? This book highlights a run in with A$AP Rocky at Miami Beach, calling Patton Oswalt from Marrakech and snoring her way through Documenta. There are cameos from Robert Crumb, doing vodka shots with Anish Kapoor and meeting Helmut Newton’s wife Jane Newton for her very first selfie. Join in on the chaos, the comedy and the bad pastry fillings you can't help but criticize.
