Art Basel will debut the latest edition of its Online Viewing Rooms (OVR) this week with an invite-only preview September 23-25, and open to the public on September 25-26. Featuring 100 exhibitors and around 600 artworks, “OVR:2020” will highlight in its entirety works that have been created this year.
“The viewing rooms that comprise Art Basel’s ‘OVR:2020’ represent an incredible force and variety of artistic perspectives, which together offer our audiences across the globe the opportunity to experience artists’ most recent works—both conveying and contending with the lived experiences of our time,” said Marc Spiegler, Art Basel’s Global Director.
Presenting exhibitions of single artists are galleries like François Ghebaly showing Ludovic Nkoth, Salon 94 presenting new photographs by Marilyn Minter, White Cube’s “Open Body” by Antony Gormley, and Alison Jacques Gallery’s presentation of new works by Erika Verzutti.
Highlights include Jibade-Khalil Huffman’s study of the contradictory and deeply rooted nature of racism in America, shown by Anat Ebgi; Jenkins Johnson Gallery’s group show “Stand Up, Speak Up, Speak Out,” with works by Lisa Corinne Davis, Rashaad Newsome, Blessing Ngobeni, Amani Lewis, and Raelis Vasquez; and Jessica Silverman’s showing of Sadie Barnette, whose work highlights her father Rodney Barnette—a founding member of the Black Panther Party.
