Part of the appeal of Art Basel Miami is its near-tropical location, allowing visitors to chill out poolside, during its early December timeframe—a new run of towels manufactured by the Art Production Fund will keep visitors chicer than ever as they dry off before hitting the fair.
The public art advocacy group has tapped the likes of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and American photographer Ryan McGinley for their new run of art-print towels, their eighth entry into this terry-cloth series. Kusama, who just opened her first solo show with David Zwirner in New York City, contributes a vivid piece focused on her trademark dot patterns, while McGinley resorts to his trademark nudes-and-animals motif.
The towels, at 60 by 70 inches, run at $95 a pop. Even if that seems like a lot to drop on a towel, maybe you can use yours to dry your tears. They’re available exclusively during Art Basel Miami, at the Standard Spa on Miami Beach.
