Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac will be at Stand C3 at Art Basel with historic works by Donald Judd, Robert Rauschenberg, Gerhard Richter and Andy Warhol alongside new works by Georg Baselitz, Alex Katz and Alvaro Barrington. Special projects by Marc Brandenburg and VALIE EXPORT will also be presented at Art Unlimited.
Lévy Gorvy’s lead items are a 1943 Calder mobile and an Enrcio Castellani red Superfice work.
Lévy Gorvy’s presentation in Booth F9 will feature a selection of important paintings and sculptures by artists anchored in the gallery’s program, including Enrico Castellani, Jutta Koether, Carol Rama, Germaine Richier, Pierre Soulages, and Günther Uecker. Rooted in both tradition and radical innovation, these works will be complemented by significant paintings and sculptures by Eduardo Chillida, Bruce Nauman, and Christopher Wool.
Hauser + Wirth is bringing three works by John Chamberlain that have not been shown before highlighting the gallery’s new role representing the artist’s estate worldwide:
Hauser & Wirth’s presentation at Art Basel spans the breadth of the gallery’s program, showcasing the very best work from contemporary artists, as well as masterpieces of the early 20th century from estates and prominent international collections, including: Hans Arp, Max Bill, Joan Miró, Francis Picabia, and Georges Vantongerloo, as well as a seminal Martin Puryear work from the Panza Collection.
The booth will have a focus on American powerhouse artists who were working at the forefront of abstraction, including Philip Guston, Jack Whitten, and Arshile Gorky, whose first Italian retrospective is currently showing at Ca’Pesaro in Venice.
To mark a special interest in Italian art, the booth will include major works by Alberto Burri, Enrico Castellani, Piero Manzoni, Medardo Rosso, and an important Cut Painting by Lucio Fontana.
2019 represents Hauser & Wirth’s largest-ever presence in the Unlimited sector, and includes installations from six artists: Larry Bell, Zoe Leonard, Fausto Melotti, Mika Rottenberg, Franz West, and Paul McCarthy, whose virtual reality experiment represents the first time the gallery has presented an artwork in VR at an art fair.
Edward Tyler Nahem has two very different abstract works leading its booth at Art Basel:
Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art (ETNFA) will present a selection of painting and sculpture from distinguished European and American masters to preeminent contemporary artists. The gallery’s stand will include works by Pablo Picasso, Joan Mitchell, Sam Francis, Gerhard Richter, and El Anatsui among others.

El Anatsui’s Bleeding Takari I, 2007 can be hung to display either its recto or verso with one side composed of shiny gold and silver bare aluminum and the other a kaleidoscopic array of colorful bottle top graphics.
