K Club
Art Basel | Unlimited Night
Hall 1.0
10 Messeplatz, Basel
Thursday June 16, 2022, 7–10pm
Special tickets for the Unlimited Night can be purchased here. A ticket to Unlimited Night does not guarantee access to K Club.

A special performance of Ari Benjamin Meyers, K Club will be at the inaugural Unlimited Night.

Ari Benjamin Meyers' K Club is a performance work in an environment installation. Conceived for the artist’s solo exhibition at Officine Grandi Riparazioni – OGR, Turin in 2019, the work consists of a special environment (either existing or specially installed) and neon signage, a musical score, composed in collaboration with Deadbeat and released separately as a limited edition LP (available here), and a performance protocol that describes guidelines for the visitor’s experience.

Each visitor experiences the work on their own. A neon sign marks the entrance to the performance environment, where visitors will queue and be led to the club area one by one. At Art Basel Unlimited Night, being alone for 10 minutes will contrast with the bustling experience of the art fair environment. During the one-night limited run, only a few visitors will be able to enter K-Club. During the duration of the work, a visitor may wander through the room, dance or otherwise enjoy this individual clubbing experience. Visitors waiting outside, and potentially turned away, are participants in the larger performative component of this one-night only edition of K Club.

'Performing Art Basel – with a rich array of performances at this year’s Swiss edition, visitors can tap into the here and now'

Through July 15, 2022

Between 1996 and 1997, Julia Scher photographed seven children wearing pink uniforms: Lena, Grace, Andy, Andre, Brandon, Jodi and Zoë. Some of them held up batons or gas masks, others just stared defiantly at the camera. In the following months, Scher enlarged these images and integrated them into an installation which traveled and evolved in time: 1997, Chicago; 1998, New York; 2000, Bordeaux ; 2018–2019, Berlin. Over the years, the principle has remained the same: a child-sized control desk surrounded by distorting mirrors bathed in twilight-colored lights. The recorded voice of the artist warns the audience: “There are live cameras filming you [...] Attention. Your size may change”. This is Wonderland, an upside-down world where children watch over adults downsized in the reflections of mirrors.

Through August 30, 2022

Under the title Perpendicular Paradigm, Angela Bulloch's major solo exhibition of new and recent work opens at the Musée d’arts de Nantes on May 13, 2022. Reconstructing the constellations in the starry sky above the museum at the 2021 summer solstice, the artist has installed Firmamental Square, a monumental Night Sky work, in the museum's atrium. Geometric sculptures made of wood, metal or synthetic marble populate the exhibition spaces along with their shadow wall paintings. In addition, a new two–channel video animation presents a 3D version of the very exhibition on view, showing a slice of a meta-reality, an exhibition within the exhibition with two invented characters roaming the exhibition; one is apparently human and the other is a planetary system made up of elements of the artist's work.

"Color in this exhibition is always a carrier of ideas. Color is and is not what it appears to be. Color is a vehicle to express contradiction and subjectivity." Liam Gillick

The exhibition Color as Program addresses color as an artistic medium and its programmatic, political dimension on the basis of art and cultural history exhibits from far more than 100 years. The theme is not so much the art historical context of color or a media-technological exploration of the topic. Rather, it is about the artistic exploration of the power of color. This permeates all disciplines, not only aesthetically and perceptually, but also politically and economically.

The exhibition features works from over 40 artists including Rosa Barba, Angela Bulloch, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster and Hito Steyerl.

“The sculptures in ‘burn shine fly’ aims to engender an altogether contemporary version of the sublime, one in which the smallest candle sculpture is of no less consequence than the overarching totality of the sun sculpture or the stellar marriage of the earthbound body with the waterfilled sky. The work should dazzle us and send us into a deep reflection about the marvels and mysteries of life.” – Ugo Rondinone

Curated by Javier Molins, burn shine fly is installed within the historic walls of one of the oldest and most important Scuole in Venice, with both iconic works by Rondinone as well as a new body of work created specifically for this exhibition.

Barer Straße 40

Through September 25, 2022

Through September 25, 2022, the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich enact Roman Ondak's Measuring the Universe.

The concept of Measuring the Universe is simple: the height of the museum visitors is recorded on the wall - in the way parents mark the growth of their children to give them a sense of the dimension of time. An everyday, actually private action becomes the center of attention and is transformed into a public and collective action. During the exhibition period, a drawing is created on the wall that becomes denser and blacker. In the end, all the people will be present at the same time, although they will all have left as well.

Fountain is an outdoor sculpture inspired in high tech public toilet facilities. Assuming its location in an area of high public density, as well as in proximity to the shore of Lake Geneva, Fountain invites the spectator to activate its subtly changing shape at the touch of a button, briefly flushing water down its aseptic stainless steel surface. Although placed in an area of vigorous transit, it conceives its address in the intimacy of an enclosure, one spectator at a time.

Fountain is a functioning circuit, as well as a circuit of one-off forms in which the oblique concavity of a stainless steel body, serves as a cast for the changing shape of flowing water.

Only by appointment:

In the Sculpture Park of Domaine du Muy are works by Gabriel Kuri and Isa Melsheimer.

Gabriel Kuri's Untitled (100%), 2011, is composed of four parts, each of which represents a quarter of a circle. Together, they form the '100%' referred to in the title. The position of the elements is important because the artist imagines them in both a realistic and symbolic dimension. Some are placed one against the other, piled on top of each other, stacked or grouped together. Kuri's metal sculptures create a link between the formal language of modernist sculpture, and the conventions of representing economic and statistical data in curves, pie charts and other diagrams.

Isa Melsheimer, Domestic Landscape and Affinities, 2014, is a work created by formwork, a technique more common to the construction of buildings which involves filling a mould with cement. Its multi-level form includes flat surfaces on which plants or objects could be placed, or members of the public may sit down. The composition of the work recalls the Brutalist architecture of the 1960s and 1970s. This piece forms part of the artist's research into architectural forms, and more specifically those of modernism and its descendants.

Collection Lambert
5 Rue Violette

July 2 – October 9, 2022

This year Ann Veronica Janssens has been invited for a dual exhibition at the Collection Lambert and the Fondation CAB (Saint-Paul-de-Vence).

At the Collection Lambert, Avignon, the artist has created an installation on the first floor of the Hôtel de Montfaucon that responds to a previously unseen selection of artworks by Dan Flavin, on show in the ground floor gallery spaces. In Saint-Paul-de-Vence, at the other extremity of Provence, she has created a situation in which her work mirrors the Avignon installation and resonates with the history of the two exhibition sites.
