Published

Paris, capital of the 19th century, comes to us multi-faceted, direct and intimate in the Royal Academy’s enjoyable new exhibition Impressionists on Paper. Manet is looking out of his window on a wet day, making sharp, scratchy lead-and-ink arabesques to depict the umbrellas and tottering carriages in “The rue Mosnier in the Rain” (1878). Renoir paints a single passer-by in pastel, a froth of black tulle, arresting us with her sideways glance. Toulouse Lautrec is in Montmartre, at the brothel, sketching with whip-fast, unbroken lines and soft gouache the smooth contours of a lesbian couple in “Two Friends” (1895).

Published

An art fair, beyond the commercial and business aspects, lends itself to a huge opportunity to sensitize and educate masses on ideas of contemporary arts. While gallery booths tend to focus on representing art that is collectible, the fair itself must create space that accounts for the experimental. Art Basel consistently weaves in invitational projects that aim to expand the worldview of contemporary visual arts

At its upcoming Hong Kong edition, the fair will open with 177 art galleries from 32 countries. It will include the sector for monumental works and a new site-specific commission by Pipilotti Rist. Encounters, the curated sector dedicated to large-scale works, will return to the show for the first time since 2019 with 14 expansive presentations.
