Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Whitewaller Basel 2017 is out this week, acting as your go-to guide for all things this Art Basel Week.
The 2017 edition of LISTE includes 79 exhibitors from 34 countries. The international fair features 15 first-timers, including Jenny’s (Los Angeles), Southard Reid (London), Bianca D’Alessandro (Copenhagen), Lomex (New York), Antoine Levi (Paris), and more. Focused on introducing young galleries representing up-and-coming artists, LISTE has built a
reputation for a place to find emerging talent since its founding in 1996. For this edition Eva Birkenstock has again curated LISTE’s Performance Project. While visiting the fair this year, don’t miss a special exhibition of work by the young artist Andriu Deplazes, the winner of the Helvetia Art Prize 2017.
This edition of Design Miami/ Basel is the most international to date, with 47 galleries from 11 countries presenting. Six galleries will be participating for the first time, alongside 12 of the original galleries to the fair. “More countries of origin than any previous edition are represented at the fair, and a broader range of styles and aesthetics than ever before,” said Rodman Primack, chief creative officer of the fair. Mercado Moderno’s addition to Design Miami/ Basel marks the first-ever South American gallery. A range of design styles will be on
view include Art Nouveau, Art Deco, postwar, midcentury modern, postmodernism, and even fine art jewelry, in addition to contemporary pieces. Included this year will be a few solo shows, including the work of Ettore Sottsass (Friedman Benda), André Sornay (Alain Marcelpoil) and Jean Prouvé (Patrick Seguin). Other highlights include design from MAD architects (Gallery ALL), Trix & Robert Haussmann (MANIERA), Christ & Gantenbein architects, and Jean Royere.
photo basel is Switzerland’s first and only photography-focused international art fair. This year marks the fair’s third edition, taking place at Volkshaus Basel, with 34 galleries ranging from established to emerging. Artists from 15 countries including China, Georgia, Japan, Peru, and the U.S. will present work over photo basel’s main section, tape/basel, and a not-for-profit
section. New additions this year include Catharine Clark (USA), Kana Kawanishi (Japan), Mariane Ibrahim Gallery (USA), and Galerie Springer (Germany). The tape/basel section is new for 2017, devoted to film, video, and moving images, curated by Chantal Molleur in collaboration with photo basel’s director, Sven Eisenhut.
