The-solo-project is a unique chance to enhance visitors’ artistic experience by focusing on single artists and their aesthetic.
Each presentation is a solo exhibition, in order to give the opportunity to fully engage with artists and their works; like in a museum setting, collectors, curators and art lovers are offered an in-depth understanding of an artist’s practice.
Participation is strictly by invitation only: galleries are carefully selected, looking at offering the best international laboratories for the production of contemporary art. The curatorial cooperation with the participating gallery owners is an integral element of the concept and reflects the desire to show to the public a different and ever surprising spectrum of contemporary artists every year.
The 9th edition of the show, coinciding with Art Basel in June 2016 at Dreispitzhalle, will include the new special project section POWER! solo-positions. This section is an open-floor curated show, offering once again a different and refined art show. Curated this year by Christophe Ménager, POWER! will showcase the freshest and most thought provoking positions of contemporary art across the globe, organized around the curatorial theme of power.
You will find us at Dreispitzhalle. The renowned location for events and exhibitions is the centrepiece of the Dreispitz area, Basel’s new cultural hotspot. It is located in immediate proximity to numerous cultural organizations and companies based in the Dreispitz area like the University of arts and Design Basel with it’s spacious campus, the house of Electronic arts Basel, the architectural archive of Herzog & de Meuron and Radio X, a leading cultural radio station. Our exhibition consists of works by Dominic Harris and Christiane Richter.
We will be delighted to see all of our friends at our booth A10, from 13-06-2016 till 18-06-2016
