For twenty-five years now, Kunsthalle Basel has presented specially commissioned art projects on the exterior rear wall of the institution.
For 2021/2022, Yoan Mudry has been invited to develop a new project for this wall.
The Swiss artist (born 1990) working in such diverse media, is known for his vibrant, hyper-realist paintings with a visual language borrowed from contemporary pop culture.
The work, the artist’s largest one in public space to date, combines text and imagery painted directly onto the wall, interrupted by framed black and white prints.
Mudry wanted to make something “not easily digestible”, in fact juxtapositions and layers of information demand time to understand.
The title suggests that if “The Future Doesn’t Need Us”, we need artists like Mudry helping us navigate in our future with open eyes and an inquisitive, critical mind.
