BASEL.- Last night, Credit Suisse, Chairman of the Board Urs Rohner, presented an intimate dinner in honor of the outstanding artistic achievements of Christian Marclay at Fondation Beyeler during Art Basel. Over the past 30 years, Christian Marclay has explored the fusion of fine art and audio cultures, transforming sounds and music into a visible, physical form through performance, collage, sculpture, installation, photography and video. Incorporating all facets of media into his work, Marclay is truly an emblematic artist of our time. He was recently named one of Newsweek’s 10 most important artists. On this occasion, Okkyung Lee, Maya Homburger, and Hans Koch performed an interpretation of Marclay’s performance piece entitled Shuffle.

In the spirit of this convergence of art, media, and technology, the evening was hosted by Tina Brown, editor-in-chief of Newsweek and The Daily Beast, Dasha Zhukova, Founder of the Garage Center of Contemporary Culture in Moscow and Creative Director of Art.sy, and Wendi Murdoch, Founding Partner of Art.sy. Before dinner, Ms. Zhukova and Mrs. Murdoch will introduced to an exclusive preview of Art.sy led by Art.sy CEO Carter Cleveland.
