A Century of the Artist’s Studio follows three years of extensive research into artists’ studios that range from a laboratory, abandoned factory, an attic & a kitchen table.
The exhibition will have two central themes: The Public Studio – Artists Together, which examines how artists have embraced the studio as a factory, exhibition space, arena etc; and The Private Studio – Artists Alone, which explores how the studio can be a home, refuge, laboratory or site of political resistance.
This ambitious and fascinating show will include 100 works by 80 artists across the globe, with art by Francis Bacon, Louise Bourgeois, Pablo Picasso, Lisa Brice, and Kerry James Marshall to be included.
Basel, January 23–May 22
“One rarely takes the time to really see a flower. I have painted it big enough so that others would see what I would see,” O’Keeffe
This early quote from 1926 has become a common thread in O’Keeffe’s art and life and the upcoming exhibition in Basel will focus on this bold and radical way of looking.
The major retrospective will showcase important works spanning six decades. From O’Keeffe’s earliest abstractions to her iconic depictions of flowers and landscapes of the American Southwest, the exhibition will offer an in-depth survey of the artist’s work including rarely seen paintings from public and private collections.
