Hauser & Wirth Brought an Eclectic Range of Work to Art Basel 2021

A grand reappearance to the biggest international art fair.

Art Basel, the world’s largest international art fair is back on its third day exhibiting in the Swiss city of Messe Basel. Due to covid, many American collectors and galleries chose not to make the voyage, creating a slightly more pared-back vibe according to some reports. However, that certainly doesn’t draw back from the captivating art on display.

We recently did a roundup of Pace Gallery’s offerings, but equally, Hauser & Wirth made a grand reappearance. Peruse Booth D9 to find an array of historical and contemporary work including the playfulness of Cindy Sherman, melancholic abstractions of George Condo and Zhang Enli, along a host of others.

The institution made it clear that this year’s showing would place special emphasis on the work of Maria Lassnig and Philip Guston — two artists who both turned to figuration during the 1960s, after experimenting across abstraction. Guston’s The Poet (1975) has already shown to be a highlight of the fair selling for $6.5m USD. Whether you have the shillings to purchase any of the art, simply absorbing the range on view is worth the experience. See the full list of artists below.

In case you missed it, a Frida Kahlo self-portrait is expected to shatter multiple auction records in November.
