Marianne Boesky Gallery is pleased to participate in the 2021 edition of Art Basel in Basel with a presentation of new and recent works by the gallery’s program of artists, including Ghada Amer, Jennifer Bartlett, Sanford Biggers, Pier Paolo Calzolari, Svenja Deininger, Danielle Mckinney, Suzanne McClelland, Donald Moffett, Celeste Rapone, and Salvatore Scarpitta, among others.
Among the featured works are paintings by artists that are newly represented by the gallery, including a new work by Celeste Rapone that continues her exploration of formalist concerns such as surface, pattern, and color in narrative vignettes that blur the boundaries between figuration and abstraction, and Danielle Mckinney, whose evocative portraits contain rich plays of light and dark values against backgrounds of spare yet expressive brushstrokes. Additionally, a large-scale work in Ghada Amer’s embroidered painting technique will be on view, complementing the artist’s current solo show at the gallery The Women I Know Part II, and new work by Svenja Deininger will be featured in the presentation ahead of her upcoming exhibition at Marianne Boesky in November.
Further works on view include Sanford Biggers’ Oracle (2021) sculpture, of which a large-scale version was featured as the centerpiece of the artist’s campus-wide public art exhibition at Rockefeller Center; a new resin work by Donald Moffett, wherein the painting’s luminous surface of pigmented resin is disrupted with circular and organically shaped cutouts that the artist drills through the work; PLAYLIST: who’s afraid of Yellows (2021) by Suzanne McClelland, in which McClelland approaches language through music, organizing lists and conjoining names of musicians to suggest language as a form of portraiture; and works by Pier Paolo Calzolari, who is regarded for his ability to capture the ephemeral with his use of elemental and organic materials as a means to explore states of matter, light, and beauty.
