The Solo project 2009. LOCATION
The Solo project organisers are pleased to announce that after a successful first year in 2008, the project will double in size to appr. 40 high quality contemporary galleries in 2009.
Times are undoubtedly harder this year but the Solo Project has built on a solid foundation of high quality work shown in well constructed spaces with a clear and specific focus. This, coupled with the fact that The Solo Project is run and organised by Paul Kusseneers and advisers, dealers who understand the market well and have a reputation for fairness, makes the event very popular with participants.
The Solo project, as its name suggests, is primarily for the invited gallery's to showcase a single artist or to feature a carefully curated group of related artworks by no more than two artists from the gallery stable. The reasoning behind this is to give the visitor the opportunity to view a series of works by each artist in greater depth and within a healthy cultural context.
The well designed and expansive catalogue accompanying The Solo Project focusing on the Artists featured that accompanied last year's show, will feature strongly again in 2009, creating an exciting legacy item for participants and visitors alike.
The Solo project, this year, is to be found at a new venue, St Jakobshalle, Bruglingerstrasse, 19-21 Basel. A large and easily reached building not far from Art Basel and the Messeplatz. There is both a direct Tram and a regular shuttle service to the exhibition.
