The Feature sector presents galleries with precise curatorial projects, showing both historical and contemporary work. This year’s edition will feature 30 galleries from 13 countries. Highlights of Feature include a presentation by Luxembourg & Dayan (New York, London) of two lesser-known bodies of works by Michelangelo Pistoletto, ‘La Gabbia’ and ‘Mobili Capovolti’, which are critical within the development of the artist’s oeuvre and significant given the political and historical context in which they were created. James Cohan Gallery (New York, Shanghai) will show a selection of iconic works by John Cage, a leading figure of the post-war Avant Garde, including his very first visual art project, ‘Not Wanting to Say Anything About Marcel’, as well as later watercolours and smoke drawings. Borzo Gallery (Amsterdam) will present a rare and previously unseen collection of works by Constant, including a number of structures, oil paintings, drawings, watercolours and photo collages, drawn from his ‘New Babylon’ series of work, the artist- architects vision of a utopian anti-capitalist city. Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects (Culver City) will show an installation of drawings by Andrea Bowers, entitled ‘#sweetjane’, examining an Ohio high-school rape case from 2012, its subsequent trial and the political activism that was triggered by it. Tokyo Gallery + BTAP (Tokyo, Beijing) will present a thematic show on Mono-ha, the sculpture-based Japanese art movement from the late 1960s onwards, including work by Jiro Takamatsu, Nobuo Sekine, Kishio Suga, Susumu Koshimizu and Koji Enokura. The artist Judith Bernstein will create a site- specific recreation of her iconic, censored screw drawing ‘Horizontal’ on the booth of Karma International (Zurich), alongside a selection of the artist’s historic anti-Vietnam war drawings and a series of new works.
