Basel Meeting Point

Rheinsprung 1

12 Jun 201717 Jun 2017

Davidoff Art Initiative in collaboration with My Art Guides will operate a temporary venue in the heart of the city and within the route of the Art Basel’s Parcours sector, called the Basel Meeting Point. The space opens daily at 2pm from June 12 -17 and complements the week of international art fairs that populate the cultural city hub of Basel at this time of year. It is conveniently located at Rheinsprung 1, near Marktplatz.

Conceived as a creative retreat and a forum for the exchange of ideas while enjoying the company of others visiting the city during Art Basel in Basel, the Basel Meeting Point will feature a program of talks and salon presentations, along with a display of works from all three Davidoff Limited Art Edition artists to date —Quisqueya Henríquez, Olivia McGilchrist and Rodell Warner, respectively. Also on view will be Sea is History by Louis Henderson, a 2016 international resident artist at Altos de Chavón, whose film continues the theme presented by My Art Guides at the Venice Meeting Point.

An unmissable highlight at the Basel Meeting Point will be a site-specific installation by Rodell Warner, daily from 4pm (in presence of the artist).

Venue:
Rheinsprung 1 (near Marktplatz).
Public transport stop: Schifflände
