BASEL.- For Art 41 Basel the Art Statements sector spotlights 26 solo projects by young artists. Selected by the Art Basel Committee from more than 300 applications, the participating artists come from 14 different countries.

The Art Statements sector has promoted young artists for over 10 years now, offering them a special platform that brings them to the eyes of an international audience of curators, collectors and art critics. Many previous participating artists have been awarded major exhibitions as a result of being discovered at Art Statements.

All projects on show will be created especially for Art 41 Basel. The participating artists come from Brazil, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, Denmark, England, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States.

Since 1999, the Bâloise Group has awarded its annual Baloise Art Prize to two outstanding Art Statements projects; last year the CHF 30,000 Baloise Art Prize was awarded to Simon Fujiwara and Claire Hooper. This year’s jury is composed of Daniel Birnbaum, Director, Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Thomas Olbricht, Olbricht Collection, Berlin; Karola Kraus, Director, Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig, Vienna; Petra Roettig, Director of the Contemporary Gallery at Hamburger Kunsthalle and Martin Schwander, Chairman of the jury.

The company also acquires works by the award-winning artists and donates them to important European institutions; this year, the institutions are the Hamburger Kunsthalle und the MUMOK Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation in Vienna.

Every year, curators invite Art Statements artists to take part in their exhibitions, works are acquired by distinguished collections, and exhibitions are placed in well-known museums and galleries. Among the artists who made their appearance at Art Statements before going on to gain worldwide acclaim are Ghada Amer, Kader Attia, Vanessa Beecroft, Pierre Huyghe, William Kentridge, Ernesto Neto, João Onofre, Jorge Pardo, Manfred Pernice, Elisabeth Peyton, Ugo Rondinone, Hans Schabus, Gregor Schneider, Kara Walker and Gary Webb.
