Art Basel: Scope sticks out tongue at convention

Lynx Alexander, who was working the floor of opening day Scope to drum up support for his campaign to be designated as New York City public art, embodies the funky spirit of this fair, which has been a tent on the sand since moving from Midtown a few years ago.

Alexander works for Steinway & Sons as an ambassador matching music with artworks. He would have needed some Bartok or Shostakovich to match with the sandwich shop installation, giant ashtray or macabre babies on display at the fair.
