    Art Basel Miami: Brought to You by These SponsorsIn one sense, it’s a very good time to be an artist. There’s a lot of money out there, collector and corporate, to fund new work. Companies are using art to get publicity for their business ventures; the overwhelming memory of Art Basel 07 is one of corporate logos, hard-sell pitches and luxury branding.

    Who’s Inspiring Booth Envy at Art Basel Miami?“It’s too early to tell,” says bewhiskered Upper East Side art dealer Robert Mnuchin, a little more than an hour into the blockbuster and busy Art Basel Miami fair. But, in one sense, it isn’t too early; a quick sprint across the floor of the Miami Convention Center shows some artists who’ve already hit the jackpot because powerhouse dealers are displaying them alongside bigger names.

    AFI 100 List Takes ‘Manhattan.’ And Shoves It.The doddering American Film Institute has finally updated its list of the best 100 films (i.e., best big-studio fiction blockbusters made with white marquee stars and male directors in the good ol’ days of Kabuki pomposity like Ben Hur). For New Yorkers, the Los Angeles–based list is predictably awful, but still worse than the last: Do The Right Thing’s token inclusion at pitiful No. 94 stings worse than its omission in 1997

    That’s Mister Mr. to YouTakashi Murakami has already spawned multiple editions of just about every object imaginable — so it was only a matter of time before he spawned a candy-colored disciple too (or two, or, twenty, actually). Enter the first: Mr. (yes, just Mr.), a mysterious protégé and a product of Murakami’s “factory”-like Kaikai Kiki company-collective. Mr. wraps up his New York solo debut tomorrow at Lehmann Maupin. —Rachel Wolff

    Brazilians Fear Becoming Fat AmericansNope, not another round of Dove “Real Beauty” ads. And not an Adbusters spoof, either. Salles Chemistri (which also does ads for General Motors) produced these campy, hyperoffensive ads for the Brazilian yogurt company Itambé, to run with the tagline: “Forget about it. Men’s preference will never change. Fit Light Yogurt.” But we prefer this American version: “Brazilian ads: As progressive as Hollywood!” —Rachel Wolff

    Michael Moore Should Watch This DocumentaryDownload Sicko? Or pay $11 at Lincoln Plaza? Today, that’s the decision you have to make, as Michael Moore’s doc opens in New York exclusively (and streams online, not exclusively at all). The Weinstein Co. has predictably lawyered-up, while Moore seems to be wrestling with his feelings. We suggest that he — and anyone who’s on the fence — watch the excellent doc Good Copy, Bad Copy.
