“Art Unlimited”


Art Basel

Since 2000, “Art Unlimited” (at the Art Basel fair) has been the ideal place to exhibit oversize sculptures, installations, videos, and performances. Vera Lutter’s Folding Four in One is a good example. The installation consists of four images taken from inside a clock tower, part of an old warehouse in Brooklyn that houses an enormous clock on each of its four sides. Lutter’s installation seemingly places viewers inside the tower, offering four different views of the neighborhood. During the day, the large clock faces/windows illuminate the interior space; at night, the interior illuminates the clock faces. “Art Unlimited” is always a good place to sense the mood of the market. This year featured “classic” works, with little space left to the vagaries of fashion. Old stars, including Carl Andre and David Nash, dominated younger artists.…see the entire review in the print version of December’s Sculpture magazine.
