Art Collector Michael Xufu Huang Took Us to Art Basel Hong Kong

Let’s just say a selfie with Murakami may or may not have been involved.

When we first sat on the stairs of the Philadelphia Museum of Art with Michael Xufu Huang, he mentioned sometimes missing class at UPenn to go to art fairs. And although we can’t say we’ve ever been in his position, we can say that we find ourselves living vicariously through his incredibly well-curated Instagram filled with everything from selfies at Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors to portraits from Forbes’s most recent 30 Under 30 event, to snaps at themed college parties in West Philly.

This past week was one of those instances where Xufu may have had to miss a class or two to go see art at Art Basel Hong Kong. But after seeing the parties (and the hangovers), the artwork (and the artists), plus the outfits (and the Gucci)? We guess homework can wait.

“The most gorgeous lunch setup. Van Cleef and Chinati Foundation killed it. The director of the Marfa, Texas-based foundation, Jenny Moore, joked this is the most amount of flowers she has seen in a year.”
