AA Bronson, artist, healer and co-founder of the artist collective General Idea, has been a regular at Art Basel for the past 42 years. “I’m a fair person,” he says, recalling the art-book fairs he founded in New York and Los Angeles. “But art-book fairs are different,” he says. “At book fairs, everybody smiles; at art fairs, everybody frowns.” Incidentally, Art Basel is the only art fair he attends. When we asked Bronson to choose his favourite works this year, he said he wanted to focus on female artists but found their works difficult to locate. “You only see the famous five or six names,” he says. “Even galleries who represent a lot of women didn’t necessarily bring them here or have only kept them in storage.” Even so, the self-confessed “book man” managed to locate a fair few works by women, plus an artist book.
