Gerard Butler: Sunshine State Stud

Making it through the long cross-country flight, Gerard Butler was spotted arriving at Miami International Airport on Friday evening (December 3).

Looking studly in a brown leather jacket, grey v-neck t-shirt and jeans, the Scottish actor eased his way through the terminal after flying in from LAX Airport in Los Angeles.



Visiting the sunshine state during the Art Basel happenings, Mr Butler is currently in negotiations to star in a new adaptation of "Afterburn".

If terms are agreed upon, Gerard will take on the main role of a character named Jake, who according to Entertainment Weekly "leads a team of recovery experts as they venture into the danger zone to secure treasures such as the Mona Lisa, and the Crown Jewels"

Art Basel Miami Beach takes place December 2 - 5, 2010.

Art Basel Miami Beach is the most important art show in
the United States, a cultural and social highlight for the Americas. As the sister event of Switzerland's Art Basel, the most prestigious art show worldwide for the past 41 years,
Art Basel Miami Beach combines an international selection of top galleries with an exciting program of special exhibitions, parties and crossover events featuring music, film, architecture and design. Exhibition sites are located in the city's beautiful Art Deco District, within walking distance of the beach and many hotels.

An exclusive selection of more than 250 leading art galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa will exhibit 20th and 21st century artworks by over 2,000 artists. The exhibiting galleries are among the world's most respected art dealers, offering exceptional pieces by both renowned artists and cutting-edge newcomers. Special exhibition sections feature young galleries, performance art, public art projects and video art. The show will be a vital source for art lovers, allowing them to both discover new developments in contemporary art and experience rare museum-calibre artworks.

Top-quality exhibitions in the museums of South Florida and special programs for art collectors and curators also help make the event a special time for encountering art. And every year, a greater number of art collectors, artists, dealers, curators, critics and art enthusiasts from around the world participate in
Art Basel Miami Beach - the favorite winter meeting place
for the international art world.

We look forward to welcoming you at Art Basel Miami Beach 2010.

Sleep at Art Basel Miami Beach? Are You Kidding?

“Now! Now!” Klaus Biesenbach commanded in his thick “Das Boot” accent. “We have 100 bottles of Champagne on the beach and it’s illegal! Come!”

Mr. Biesenbach, who holds the august-sounding title of director of MoMA P.S. 1 in Queens and chief curator at large at the Museum of Modern Art, was leading a select group of revelers down to the ocean from the pool at the Delano hotel in Miami Beach.

This was on Thursday near midnight, just moments after the conclusion of a raucous poolside performance orchestrated by the artist Mariah Robertson that used the Delano pool as a backdrop for a tribute, sort of, to the film director Busby Berkeley, one that dipped into the talent pool of greater Miami to come up with a cappella singers, dancers, synchronized swimmers, a full carnival band and several people who disported themselves charmingly if gratuitously in the nude.

Mr. Biesenbach had promised in an e-mail sent earlier in the week that the presentation would be a challenge to the “borders of review, parade, orchestra, improvisation and concert.”

But, honestly, what isn’t during the hedonistic whirlwind of Art Basel Miami Beach?

By Sunday, Miami Beach will go right back to its vaguely drowsy pre-Christmas lull. But for these four days, particularly along the strip of hotels lining Collins Avenue, a prevailing “Day of the Locust” atmosphere challenges anybody’s ideas about what constitutes a circus. On the street side of the Delano, a near-mob formed on Thursday, one crowd of people in their finery clamoring to join a second mob in glad rags, packed sardine-tight inside the immense curtained lobby of the hotel.

Just as those in the first group made it inside to join the second, Mr. Biesenbach and his crowd of the art world elect were sneaking out the back way and onto the sand. There they commenced their own party, in defiance of local ordinances, and kept it going until almost dawn.

“Still awake,” Mr. Biesenbach wrote in a text message very early Friday morning. “Made no sense to sleep.”

Who sleeps during Art Basel? Who has the time to pause during a seemingly endless round of dinners and parties and after-parties and after-after-parties, usually followed by a last stop at le Baron. That pop-up club is run here every year during Art Basel by André Saraiva, the tiny, charming Frenchman who years ago took a tiny, seedy bar in an unlikely bourgeois part of Paris and turned it into the epicenter of a certain kind of cool.

Somehow Mr. Saraiva always manages to look chipper and well rested. How he manages this is a mystery. Perhaps Wallace Stevens was right when he noted that the air is special in Florida. (He was certainly onto something in describing the state’s “venereal soil.”)

Far from looking fatigued, the people at the celebrations that were taking place on the beach and beyond looked serene and energized. On Thursday evening alone, an enterprising and well-networked visitor could have selected from a menu of events that included a private Bruce Weber cocktail wingding on the lawn at the Standard, a raucous take-the-streets celebration of the mural project called Wynwood Walls, a private seated dinner for 100 or so given by the immensely rich real estate developer Aby Rosen and his wife, Samantha Boardman, at the W Hotel and a competing sit-down dinner at Cecconi’s restaurant at Soho Beach House, hosted by Stefano Tonchi, the editor of “W.” —.

“I haven’t stopped for a minute since I got here,” Becca Cason Thrash, the Texas socialite, collector and philanthropist said at the “W” dinner, as waiters circulated with trays of crab puffs and rolls of bresaola. Ms. Thrash stopped to correct herself. Her eyes saturated by two days of intensive art-viewing, at the main Art Basel fair and its satellites like Nada, Pulse and Scope, she had in fact taken a breather before Thursday evening’s social marathon for a visit to the Webster, the high concept fashion store operated by a French cognac heiress and her partner in a restored Art Deco pile on Collins Avenue.

“I couldn’t look at any more art, so I went shopping for clothes,” and that revived her Ms. Thrash said at the “W” party, showing off the black cashmere turtleneck that was among her purchases. What she found most restorative about her trip the Webster was not the selection of clothes by European designers (she is a serious couture client) or the potatoes with caviar at Kaviar Kaspia, the store’s in-house restaurant.

No, what refreshed her were the Webster’s deep pre-holiday discounts.

“They had my three most favorite words in the world,” Ms. Thrash said. “Forty percent off.”

Thanks, Dallas.

"Charming nudity" is what Gerry calls his ass shots in films.

It's and also the name Craig Ferguson used to dance under.






(If you don't watch Craig Ferguson, you won't get the joke....
On his show Craig often says, " By the way, _____ was a name I used to dance under." filling in the blank with random names/phrases etc. that fit.)

So what exactly is this? An art show or a plethora of wild beach parties, or both? I'm kinda confused.
