Art Basel 2016, June 16 – 19

13 June 2016

The European art fair giant, Art Basel is running in its home town, running June 16 to 19.

Each year Basel, and Switzerland in general, welcomes not only its galleries, artists and loyal fair goers but also an array of other activity and slightly smaller performance festivals and art fairs.  LISTE is on in Basel, Manifesta 11 is taking place in Zurich, which opened its doors on June 11, while online mini art fair, Dream Basel will run across the same dates as (official) Basel, inviting the likes of London’s Seventeen Gallery and Mexico City’s Lodos to curate booths —or clouds.

Running concurrently will also be a group show called NOTITLES_02, a gathering of artists and their works as a part of a project curated throughout 2016 by Sophie Yerly.

Our Art Basel recommendations include artist Timur Si-Qin whose solo booth in the ‘Statements’ sector will be presented by SociétéBasel Abbas + Ruanne Abou-Rahme with Carroll/Fletcher, a re-staging of Jannis Kounellis’ Da inventare sul posto (To Invent on the Spot) (1972) at Luxembourg & Dayan, and Piotr Łakomy who will show with Warsaw’s Galeria Stereo.

There’s an Art Basel l Parcours night on June 18, as well at The Lair group exhibition running concurrently at Oslo10 to July 14.

Frances Stark will show with Gavin Brown’s Enterprise amongst a few others, and LA’s Regen Projects brings together a large group including Ryan TrecartinDoug Aitken and Wolfang Tillmans.
