Kunsthalle Basel

Kunsthalle Basel is dedicated to exhibiting, discussing, and reflecting on the art of the present. And it always has been, since its founding in 1872. It was one of the first institutions in Switzerland to feature international and Swiss contemporary art, and today it is still among the country’s most active. It is renowned for its audacious and varied programs as well as for its engagement with artists, particularly those who are not yet widely known. It welcomes curious visitors of all ages and organizes up to 10 thought- provoking exhibitions per year, many of which include newly produced works. It also hosts a panoply of events — artist’s talks, performances, film screenings, and more — making it a vibrant site to experience contemporary art and take part in the discussions that surround it.

The lush, moody paintings of Sanya Kantarovsky (*1982) combine wry humor and the silhouettes of contemporary characters with the acrid hues and stylistic inflections reminiscent of painter Paul Gauguin. Here, a selection of new and recent paintings set the scene for the premiere of the Russian-born artist’s new animation film, his largest cinematic venture to date.

Tania Pérez Córdova (*1979) makes an art of turning ordinary materials with their intricate backstories into conceptual sculptures. In her first institutional solo show in Europe, the Mexican artist mines language and time, and questions distinctions between original and copy, to create a body of newly commissioned works.
