For the 2022 edition of Art Basel, David Nolan Gallery is pleased to present a selection of works by artists from the gallery’s program as well as artists affiliated with the gallery’s exhibition history of the past 35 years. Our selection will showcase paintings, sculptures, works on paper, textiles, and mixed media works by an array of artists across generations and cultures, from Europe and America, creating a connected experience of ideas, materials and processes.
A sculpture made of rubber tires by Chakaia Booker and a metaphysical canvas by Paulo Pasta, two artists whose work David Nolan Gallery will be exhibiting in Basel for the first time, will be in dialogue with new three-dimensional paper work by Jorinde Voigt, a seductive mahogany sculpture by Mel Kendrick and historical works focusing on architectural space and perspective, including a vibrant drawing by Barry La Va from the 1980s and a Cut-In painting by Dorothea Rockburne, both from the 1980s.
A majestic tapestry by David Hartt addresses diasporas and their long-term effects on post-colonial identity, while new fantastic paintings by Jonathan Meese celebrate art as the supreme force that governs the land.
A major highlight will be a rare group of five early works by Richard Pettibone from the late 1960s, which directly reference the paintings of Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Frank Stella and Jasper Johns, and question originality in art.
