Art Fair Roundup: Art Basel

It’s a wrap on Art Basel and it has been wonderful to see so many members of our network back in full swing on the international circuit. With the booths torn down, and invoices being settled, we decided to round up the presentations from our members and highlight some of our favourite pieces.

June 21, 2022

Ben Brown Fine Arts 

Ben Brown Fine Arts displayed works by Frank Auerbach, Tony Bevan, Alighiero Boetti, Lucio Fontana, Giorgio Morandi, Michelangelo Pisoletto, Sigmar Polke, and Gerhard Richter. All major European artists, the booth challenged traditional approaches to painting and representation pushing physical and conceptual limits. 

Standout works included an early sculpture by Lucio Fontana and embroidery by Alighiero Boetti. 

Luxembourg & Co

Luxembourg & Co presented works from the late 19th century - present day, including work by Edouard Manet, Paul Cezanne, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, Rudolf Belling, Lucio Fontana, Alighiero Boetti and Ed Ruscha. 

Booth highlights included Mario Schifano’s ‘Particolare di esterno’ - an appropriated logo from a Florida Service Sign, and Rudolf Belling’s sculpture, Dreiklang.

Mayor Gallery

Mayor Gallery showcased a wide range of modern movements including Surrealism, Conceptualism and Minimalism, Zero and Concrete, Central European Avant-Garde, Op and Pop Art.

This work rendered in plexiglass by Billy Apple® is one of our favourites. 

Pace Gallery

Pace Gallery presented works by Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko alongside works by Huong Dodinh, Latifa Echakhch, Kiki Kogelnik, Lee Kun-Yong, Louise Nevelson, and Hermann Nitsch. It also included contemporary painting and sculpture by artists including Adrian Ghenie, Kylie Manning, and Maysha Mohamedi.⁠

Tony Smith’s sculpture ‘Memphis’ and ‘Outerspace’ by Kiki Kogelnik stood out with their vibrancy and form.

Stephen Friedman Gallery 

Stephen Friedman Gallery focused on themes of diasporic cultures, migration and displacement. The presentation brought together new and historical works by artists Leilah Babirye, Lisa Brice, Melvin Edwards, Denzil Forrester, Kendell Geers, Jeffrey Gibson, Hulda Guzmán, Tau Lewis, Deborah Roberts, Yinka Shonibare CBE RA and Kehinde Wiley.

Highlights of the booth included Yinka Shonibare’s CBE RA, 'Hybrid Mask (D’mba)' and Deborah Roberts’, mixed media work, ‘Subject: America #5 I give up’

Sadie Coles HQ 

Sadie Coles HQ presented work by Uri Aran, Alex Da Corte, Urs Fischer, Paul Anthony Harford, Kati Heck, Jonathan Horowitz, Jim Lambie, Sarah Lucas, Jonathan Lyndon Chase, Helen Marten, Laura Owens, Ugo Rondinone, Wilhelm Sasnal, Ryan Sullivan, Paloma Varga Weisz and Jordan Wolfson.

We loved Jonathan Lyndon Chase’s painting ‘Sunset Lamps’ and Helen Martin’s mixed media work ‘The Orange is Red, the nose is cold’
