Antikenmuseum, Basel for Art Basel Parcours
On display at the Antikenmuseum Basel und Sammlung Ludwig, Daniel Silver’s Rock Formations (2014-2015) is composed of a series of semi-figurative sculptural works that embody the artist’s ongoing obsession with the ancient world. Presented by Frith Street Gallery (London), the works which make up the installation are composed of couplings or collages of stone and bronze heads placed directly on a piece of Carrara marble.
Parcours looks to engage with Basel’s past and present by weaving artistic interventions into the fabric of the specific location each edition inhabits. The 2015 edition of Parcours will be sited in the historical center of Basel around the city’s iconic cathedral, infiltrating key locations such as the Museum of Culture, the Natural History Museum, the Town Hall and the Münsterplatz itself. 23 site-specific artworks by internationally renowned as well as emerging artists will be featured, the biggest selection to date.

The Image as Burden
31 May – 6 September 2015
Fondation Beyeler, Basel, Switzerland
The exhibition The Image as Burden at Fondation Beyeler was planned and designed in close collaboration with Marlene Dumas and realized together with the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the Tate Modern London. Sticking to a basic chronological order, the show traces her development as an artist. On display is a selection of over a hundred paintings and drawings, including several rarely shown collages from her early work and a few very recent paintings. Thus the show provides a comprehensive overview of the artist’s oeuvre from the mid-1970s to the present.
