For the fourth consecutive year, the section is curated by Alexie Glass-Kantor, Executive Director of Artspace in Sydney and features 12 ambitious projects with institutional-scale installations and site-specific projects, with nine new works created specifically for this year’s show.
The 2018 edition, which again will be installed along the four boulevards that run through the two exhibition floors of the show, will feature work by Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan, Chou Yu-Cheng, Toshikatsu Endo, Ryan Gander, Subodh Gupta, Iván Navarro, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, Shinji Ohmaki, Jorge Pardo, Erwin Wurm, Ulla von Brandenburg and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Art Basel, whose Lead Partner is UBS, takes place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from Thursday, March 29 to Saturday, March 31, 2018.
Bringing together 12 artists from 11 countries and territories including Australia, Austria, Chile, Cuba, Germany, India, Japan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom, Alexie Glass-Kantor’s focus for this year’s curation centers around inviting the audience to make contact with objects, artists and ideas. While some artworks will require the viewer’s participation to activate the work, others will reflect or mirror the body of the audience, directly implicating them into each work.
