Art Basel Announces Solo Shows by 27 Young Artists as Part of its Art Statements Sector
This year Art Basel’s Selection Committee has focused above all on artists who are little-known or represent complex artistic positions.
BASEL.- For Art 40 Basel the Art Statements sector includes 27 solo shows by young artists. Selected by the Art Basel Committee from a record number of more than 300 applications, the participating artists come from 13 different countries. Art Statements has promoted young artists for over 10 years now, offering them a special platform that brings them to the eyes of an international audience of curators, collectors and art critics. Many past artists have been awarded major exhibitions as a result of being discovered at Art Statements. These 27 projects promise art enthusiasts interesting and stimulating encounters with work from the rising generation of artists.

This year Art Basel’s Selection Committee has focused above all on artists who are little-known or represent complex artistic positions. All projects on show will be created especially for Art 40 Basel. The participating artists come from Germany, USA, Poland, Switzerland, Italy, UK, Belgium, Netherlands, China, Ireland, Sweden, Spain and Brazil.

Since 1999, the Bâloise Group has awarded its annual Baloise Art Prize of CHF 25,000 per recipient to two outstanding Statements projects. This year the price has been raised to CHF 30,000 for each artist. This year’s jury is composed of Dr. Petra Roettig, Director of Galerie der Gegenwart, Hamburger Kunsthalle; Philipp Kaiser, Curator at MOCA Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Professor Edelbert Köb, Director of MUMOK Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation in Vienna; Walter Vanhaerents, VanhaerentsArtCollection, Brussels und Martin Schwander, external art advisor of Bâloise and Chairman of the Jury. The company also acquires works by the award-winning artists and donates them to important European institutions. Once again this year the institutions are the Hamburger Kunsthalle und the MUMOK Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation in Vienna. Last year the Baloise Art Prize was awarded to Duncan Campbell and Tris Vonna-Mitchell.

Art Statements represents Art Basel’s commitment to promote emerging artists with ambitious projects. This dedication for supporting younger positions in a concentrated sector has been sustained for over three decades now - the sector Perspektiven, Neue Tendenzen, Young Galleries, and, since 1996, Art Statements have consistently offered galleries of contemporary art a platform guaranteeing them significant attention.

The fact that Art Basel is an international benchmark for the latest artistic trends, and that curators from kunsthalles and museums frequently select Art Statements artists for their exhibition programs, is a tribute to the enormous success of the sector. Word travels fast when top curators invite artists to take part in their exhibitions, when works are acquired for distinguished collections, and when exhibitions are placed in well-known museums and galleries. Among the artists who made their appearance at Art Statements before going on to gain worldwide acclaim are Ghada Amer, Kader Attia, Vanessa Beecroft, Pierre Huyghe, William Kentridge, Mariko Mori, Ernesto Neto, Joăo Onofre, Jorge Pardo, Manfred Pernice, Elisabeth Peyton, Ugo Rondinone, Hans Schabus, Gregor Schneider, Kara Walker and Gary Webb.
