BASEL.- This year's Art Parcours sector for Art 42 Basel will present artworks at various historical locations in the city of Basel. After the introduction of Art Parcours in 2010 on the Münsterhügel, the 2011 edition will use different venues in the St. Alban Tal area along the Rhine. From Wednesday, June 15 until Sunday, June 19, ten locations will be transformed by site-specific artworks and performances created by a number of renowned international artists.

This array of high-calibre works, curated by Jens Hoffmann, Director of the CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco, will engage with Basel’s past and present, weaving artistic interventions into the fabric of the city. Venues in Basel's St. Alban Tal area include fishing houses along the river, a large cargo ship, sections of the old city wall, one of the oldest buildings in Basel (known for a historical mural depicting the myth of Wilhelm Tell), the St. Alban church, and an old water reservoir, as well as various public sites throughout the area.

Art Parcours is free and open to the public from Wednesday, June 15, until Saturday, June 18, from 2pm to 10pm daily, (and from 2pm to 7pm on Sunday, June 19). On Thursday, June 16, from 8pm to midnight, the new 'Art Parcours Night,' featuring various performances and concerts, will be held on the river bank. Food and drinks will also be served. The artist Chris Johanson and his band, Sun Foot, will be performing on a stage designed by the artist for this performance.

The Art Parcours program will be complemented by dance performance 'bodies in urban spaces' by Willi Dorner in cooperation with Kaserne Basel, and a special event featuring bands and DJs in connection with the Henrik Olesen exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Participating artists: Ai Weiwei, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Anne Chu, Federico Herrero, Chris Johanson, Joan Jonas, Kris Martin, Ugo Rondinone, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Gabriel Sierra
