Premiere | Artist Talk | Lynda Benglis
Lynda Benglis, whose innovative and vivid sculptures have been challenging the art establishment for half a century, will inaugurate this year’s Conversations series. Her work is about expression of space, color, texture and substance – materials that have been widely explored in her remarkable career. But Lyndas’ art also thematizes sex, power and gender, as infamously stated with her advertisement in the Artforum November issue of 1974, which startled the 1970s artworld and provoked unpredictable responses. Today, 40 years later, how far have we (not) progressed?

Public/Private | New Funding Models for the Visual Arts
The inspiration for this panel comes from the recent launch of Art Basel’s Crowdfunding Initiative with Kickstarter. Considering that crowdfunding is now one of the most efficient as well as innovative ways to collect funds, the conversation explores a number of pressing matters surrounding the question of funding for the arts in general and visual arts in particular, amongst others the context of a booming art market. How is it possible to ensure that adequate resources will flow not only to commercially popular artists, but also to the many non-profit organizations that contribute to a healthy ecology for the visual arts?
