The inaugural edition of Basel Online features new and significant works available exclusively online.
Launching to coincide with Art Basel, Basel Online functions as a parallel fair presentation, offering collectors access to works of the same caliber as those that the gallery will present in its physical booth.
The Online Viewing Room includes twenty works from David Zwirner gallery artists and estates, many of which have never been on public view and come directly from the artists' studios. This singular selection highlights the gallery's recent exhibition program across its locations in New York, London, and Hong Kong.
Basel Online premieres new works from such critically acclaimed artists as Harold Ancart, Carol Bove, Chris Ofili, Josh Smith, Jordan Wolfson, and Lisa Yuskavage. These contemporary artworks are shown alongside notable historical works, such as a delicate tied-wire sculpture by Ruth Asawa, a Dan Flavin sculpture dedicated to Cy Twombly, and a wall-mounted box by Donald Judd.
Also included in this digital-only presentation are a number of artists whose works are exhibited at Art Basel and Unlimited, including Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Kerry James Marshall, and Luc Tuymans, whose retrospective La Pelle runs through January 2020 at the Palazzo Grassi, Venice.
