Chinese Whispers
2016-02-19 to 2016-06-19
Bern

«Chinese Whispers» provides a deeper insight into art created in China in the past fifteen years. You can explore the vast country through the eyes of Chinese artists, from Ai Weiwei to Zhuang Hui.

The title of «Chinese Whispers» refers to the popular party game in which an orally transmitted message is altered as it is passed from one person to the next. Notions of tradition and transmission, distortion and miscommunication are part of the concept of this exhibition. It also highlights the influence of western contemporary art on Chinese artists, as well as artistic reflections on traditions and life in presentday China. Moreover, the exhibition questions western perceptions of China and the vast cultural, historical and political differences that remain despite our greater familiarity with the world’s largest cultural area and one of the biggest economic powers.

Immerse yourself in the works of art assembled by Swiss collector Uli Sigg and explore the collection through the four thematic areas – «Global Art from China», «On Dealing with Tradition», «Traces of Change» and «Between Consumer Mania and Spirituality».

LISTE - Art Fair Basel
2016-06-14 to 2016-06-19
Burgweg 15, Basel, Switzerland

An impressive and remarkable success story

What began as an initiative by young gallerists in 1996, developed into one of the most important fair dedicated exclusively to new galleries and primarily to young art.

For 20 years, the fair has been making relevant contributions to the promotion of young artists and galleries. The intentionally low number of 79 galleries and the high level of sophistication of those galleries are reasons for LISTE’s extraordinary success, international reputation and drawing power. For many years now, every young, ambitious gallery has sought to be a part of this most important art event.

Aline und Robert Crumb – Drawn Together
2016-07-02 to 2016-11-13
Cartoonmuseum Basel, St. Alban–Vorstadt 28, 4052 Basel, Switzerland

Aline Kominsky-Crumb and Robert Crumb are an odd couple – in life as well as in art. She is a pioneer of the autobiographic comic, and he a celebrated underground illustrator and creator of characters such as Fritz the Cat and Mr. Natural. Together, they manage to convey this highly productive creative tension in many crazy stories.

With an astonishing frankness where nothing is off-limits, they depict the story of their lives as a side-splitting drama, especially their move from the United States to France. In the leading roles you will see: the societal upheavals of the 1970es, the gender differences and inequalities, and some solid neuroses. For the first time ever, a museum is curating a comprehensive show of their original works, focusing on the cooperation of these two pioneering artists.
