Art Basel 2023
From 15 to 18 June 2023, Mennour presents on booth C5 a selection of forty major works, developed around three “focuses” dedicated to Anish Kapoor, Camille Henrot and Ugo Rondinone; as well as two Unlimited projects. The first is by Zineb Sedira, while the second is a duo project by Tadashi Kawamata and François Morellet.
The gallery’s new participation is also punctuated by artists’ projects by Art Basel and in Switzerland.
Visitors and collectors will be able to hear Camille Henrot in Art Basel Conversations on 14 June at 3pm, meet her at 5pm for the signing of her books Milkyways and Mother Tongue, on the Hatje Cantz’ booth, and (re)discover her work in St Gallen at a major solo exhibition at LOK on view from June 10 to November 5.
On the other hand, Ugo Rondinone’s has taken over the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire in Geneva (on view until 18 June). The artist orchestrated a dialogue with the collection (more than five hundred pieces) and his work, in a dialogue that is learned and irreverent, demanding and playful, pop and yet profound.
The same goes for the Petrit Halilaj exhibition at the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, also in Geneva (until 17 September.) The exhibition is an adaptation of the project originally shown at the Tate St Ives, based on Halilaj’s drawings, made when he was a 13-year-old child war refugee in a camp. Cut out and combined, these drawings are disproportionately enlarged, printed on felt pen and hand-painted on the reverse, to create a striking installation with a theatrical feel.
