The hunt for great art was on for Trevor Schoonmaker at Art Basel Miami Beach 2012.
The photo album of our famous visitors to “The Record” may seem pretty impressive. Even more exciting: the wonderful conversations and ideas they brought, and the notion that they went back out into the world and told lots of people about the Nasher Museum and “The Record.”
We are all still talking about last week’s visit with L.A.-based artist Dave Muller. As part of his talk, the annual Barbra and Andrew Rothschild lecture, he performed his Top 11 records, on two turntables, for about 20 minutes.

The top ten list is something of a cliche. Billboard charts, FBI most wanted–you name it and there’s probably a top 10 list for it. For years, David Letterman has offered up his own goofy Top 10 List on the Late Show. A Google search even turns up a list of Top Ten Urinals.
But artist Dave Muller turns an ordinary top 10 list into gorgeous, monumental works on paper.

It’s not surprising that the photo editor chose the image above to represent our upcoming exhibition, a group show including work by 33 artists called “The Record: Contemporary Art & Vinyl,” [...]
