Hollywood and Silicon Valley joined Art Basel on the beach at the Soho House last night with a party Wendi Murdoch and Dasha Zhukova hosted for new art web start-up Art.sy, founded by 24-year-old Carter Cleveland. The site is being described as a "Pandora for art." The Louis Vuitton-sponsored beachside barbecue had the Mugrabi family scions sitting on the couch with actor Owen Wilson and designer Roberto Cavalli filing past actor Adrien Brody. It was one of the two events of the evening that have been the talk of the fair all day. The other was the grand opening of the Shelborne South Beach, with the Art of Night kick-off dinner styled by event producer Susanne Bartsch. Along with a human disco ball, Ivana Trump, Alanis Morisette and David Barton hung around the pool that was surrounded by inflatable swans and covered with a see-through stage. Later DJ Paul Sevigny (brother of Chloe) kept Collins Avenue up in the lounge. And if that wasn’t enough, karaoke continued even later into the night in the basement of The Studio.
