Art Basel 2021 – Italian Influences

21/09/2021 • 26/09/2021

A journey through the arts of 20th and 21st centuries With works by: Giacomo Balla, Massimo Bartolini, Elisabetta Benassi, Alighiero Boetti, Enrico Castellani, Mircea Cantor, Francesca Leone, Piero Manzoni, Cabrita, Alessandro Piangiamore, Daniele Puppi, Vedovamazzei, Ettore Spalletti, Mario Schifano, Namsal Siedlecki With the special project Italian Influences, conceived specifically for Art Basel 2021, we aim to present a non-linear history of tendencies and influences in over a century of Italian and international arts. Starting from the historical avant-garde, throughout its Postwar reformulation and exploring a series of look-backs by contemporary artists, the presentation engages the viewer with a scattered and fragmented history of Italian influences, through connections and contextualizations that give life to unexpected relations.

Dahlberg’s sets are architectural models, built to a circular plan, and filmed with a centrally positioned rotating camera. What seem to be tracking shots are really 360° pans, describing loci that inevitably read as nodes in a labyrinth–a subtly scary one, since its vertical and horizontal extension implies the impossibility of…Continua / More
