Jan 28 – Apr 21, 2024
Fondation Beyeler
Basel, Switzerland

The Fondation Beyeler is devoting a comprehensive solo show to the internationally renowned artist Jeff Wall (b. 1946). It is the first such show of his work in Switzerland in almost two decades and has been created in close collaboration with the artist. Since the late 1970s Wall has contributed significantly to establishing photography as an autonomous medium and is regarded as the founder of “staged photography”. The Canadian mostly generates large-format photographs intricately and subtly composed from numerous individual shots: often inspired by daily life and art history, his images resemble carefully crafted film stills. The works on show in the exhibition include Wall’s famous transparencies displayed in lightboxes, along with black-and-white photographs and colour photographic prints. In each of the eleven rooms, more recent works forge a rich thematic and formal dialogue with iconic early pieces. The exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler will also feature several new works on public view for the very first time.

Bringing together 55 works from international museums and private collections and from Jeff Wall’s own holdings, the survey show takes a new look at the work of this important artist.

  • Maggie Lee: Magazine
    Feb 10 – May 20, 2024
    Kunsthalle Zürich
    Zürich, Switzerland

    The exhibition Magazine was born out of the artist’s long-held desire to publish her own magazine – a very personal magazine that would nonetheless circulate further than just her own circle of friends. Maggie Lee’s passion for this medium of distribution was inspired by her work in copy stores, and above all by creating zines since her teenage years in New Jersey. There is a special appeal to the creative self-realisation in self-publishing (more…)
