Our photos from Art Unlimited and Art Statements are now on Flickr, accompanied by the artists’ names, work titles and gallery affiliations.
Although it was difficult to pick favorites, as the overall selection was pretty amazing, we’ll cover some projects in more detail in the next couple of posts.
Art Unlimited and Art Statements are the two fair sectors located in a hall adjacent to the main Art Basel space (featuring all participating art galleries).
Art Unlimited, this year in its 13th edition is often seen as highlight of the fair for the cutting-edge pieces it presents. Works by artists from all over the world and most diverse media are proposed by participating galleries and selected by the Art Basel committee in collaboration with the Art Unlimited curator, Simon Lamunière.
This years selected projects included works by art stars as Daniel Buren, Mario Merz, Dan Flavin, Anish Kapoor or James Turrell, as well as younger generation of artists, e.g. Kendell Geers, Allora & Calzadilla, Hans Op de Beeck, Erik Van Lieshout, and finally some pretty fresh blood such as the 26-year old much talked-about Jacob Kassay.
Art Statements sector features one-person stands by emerging artists from galleries worldwide. The two which really caught our attention were L.A.-based Kordansky Gallery, showing installations by Kathryn Andrews (see also image above) and the Berlin PSM Gallery with works by Daniel Jackson.
