In this second field report for Art Basel 42, Ben Austin & Oliver Malin take a gander at the Swiss Art Prize & the satellite fairs, Scope, Liste & Volta, that have expanded in recent years to meet demand for a broader range of artistic offerings. Just before they jumped back on FAD’s private Easyjet, they rode across the Rhine, known for it’s unforgiving current.
Its Armory week this week and there’s quite a few art fairs opening in New York below are four we recommend you visit.
We caught up with London-based collector and philanthropist Kamiar Maleki, who served as director of Contemporary Istanbul from 2016 to 2018 to talk about his new appointment as director off VOLTA and PULSE.
