Sites is dedicated to artistic projects taking place in the heart of Paris. For its first edition, Sites will take place in emblematic settings throughout the city, including the Jardin des Tuileries – Domaine national du Louvre, where 25 sculptures and installations will be exhibited, as well as Place Vendôme, Musée national Eugène–Delacroix and Chapelle des Petits–Augustins des Beaux–Arts de Paris.
Clément Delépine, Director, Paris+ par Art Basel says:
‘I am truly delighted with the scale and ambition of our inaugural edition of Sites and the vibrant Conversations program. Both sectors are accessible to all, extending our programming throughout the city to a broad audience beyond our fair visitors. While Sites and Conversations take place outside of the fair premises, conceptually they sit at its very center, providing new impulses to contemporary cultural discourse.’
Sites at the Jardin des Tuileries – Domaine national du Louvre and at musée national Eugène–Delacroix Organized in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre and curated by Annabelle Ténèze, Director of Les Abattoirs, Musée – Frac Occitanie Toulouse, the exhibition titled ‘La Suite de l’Histoire’, brings together large–scale works in the scenic grounds of the Jardin des Tuileries and a solo project by artist Thaddeus Mosley in the landscaped garden at the musée national Eugène–Delacroix.
The exhibition examines the multi–layered history of the Jardin des Tuileries, including its political and public dimensions, through the work of artists whose practices often subvertand reimagine the role of art in the public realm. Set in a place in which history, architecture and nature converge, the exhibition invites visitors to revisit the gardens in a new way.
Annabelle Ténèze, Paris+ par Art Basel Curator of Sites at the Jardin des Tuileries – Domaine national du Louvre and at the musée national Eugène–Delacroix, says:
‘La Suite de l’Histoire’ brings together contemporary creations linked to new artistic practices in thepublic space. In the Jardin des Tuileries, a place of history, a space of nature in the city and a popular attraction, and in the musée Delacroix, over 20 works emancipate themselves from the tradition of monumental elevation and question the narratives in suspense. The artists, proposing alternative monuments, turning the forms of sculpture upside down or inhabiting the garden in a different way, reveal the possible continuations of history; ‘La Suite de l’Histoire’.’
Laurence des Cars, Présidente–Directrice of the Musée du Louvre says:
‘I am thrilled about this inaugural exhibition, which reflects an emboldened presence of contemporary art in the Tuileries, and is embedded in the renewal of our autumnal sculpture project in the gardens. Since the 17th century, the garden has been a place for the public and for creativity. Annabelle Ténèze, whose work at the musée d’art contemporain de Rochechouart and the Abattoirs in Toulouse I have followed closely, has perfectly mastered the technical and curatorial challenges at hand to propose an exhibition that features works by artists from different generations and backgrounds. The Tuileries garden, like the Louvre and the musée Delacroix, is a place filled with life in all its forms. With this exhibition, we will be able to write La Suite de l’Histoire’ together.’
– Danish artist Nina Beier‘s ‘Guardians’ (2022), an installation of four toppled marble lions laying on the ground and covered with patches of seeds, attracting the garden’s birds. The work is presented by Croy Nielsen and Standard (Oslo).
– An installation by Mexican, New York–based artist Raúl de Nieves, composed of three beaded sculptures and titled ‘Musicians’ (2020) presented by Morán Morán, Company Gallery, and Fitzpatrick Gallery.
– French American artist Niki de Saint Phalle‘s sculpture ‘Blue Obelisk with Flowers’ (1992) presented by Georges–Philippe & Nathalie Vallois.
–‘The Green Pavilion’ (2022) by French architect and artist Odile Decq, an homage to the Renaissance greenhouse as a space for protection of rare species and social interaction, presented by Galerie Philippe Gravier.
– German artist Judith Hopf’s ‘Phone User 4 (outdoor)’ (2022), a concrete sculpture of a human–sized figure holding a smartphone, addressing the fraught relationship between people and their mobile devices.
– A sculpture by Austrian artist Franz West titled ‘Lemurenköpfe (Lemure Heads)’ (1992/2000), first displayed at documenta IX in Kassel in 1992 and presented by David Zwirner.
The exhibition will continue at the musée national Eugène Delacroix, which will host a presentation of works by African American artist Thaddeus Mosley, marking the sculptor’s first solo museum exhibition in France. Mosley introduces an installation comprising recent sculptures, ranging in size from miniature to monumental. Heavily carved pieces are balanced against one another in multi–part sculptures, which are contrasted by smaller, mask–sized, tabletop sculptures. Mosley’s work is presented by Karma.
Sites at Place Vendôme
At Place Vendôme, German–Polish artist Alicja Kwade will present ‘Au cours des Mondes’ (2022), curated by Jérôme Sans. This new installation, her largest to date, is a set of spheres, a recurring motif for the artist, in dialogue with infinite staircases. A veritable initiatory journey in the public space, the installation questions our relationship to knowledge, the universe, and the mechanisms of power. The work is presented by kamel mennour.
Sites at Chapelle des Petits-Augustins des Beaux-Arts de Paris
Omer Fast’s exhibition ‘Karla’ (2022) will be on view at Chapelle des Petits-Augustins des Beaux-Arts de Paris. It features a holographic projection exploring the eponymous character’s job for a big tech company, as well as ghost-like sculptures and copies of Max Beckmann’s self-portrait. Together, these elements respond to the 16th-century sculptures permanently on view in the chapel, exploring the inherently ambiguous nature of concepts such as authenticity, time, and reality. ‘Karla’ is presented by gb agency.
The Sites sector is supported by David Yurman, a celebrated American jewelry company founded in New York by David Yurman, a sculptor, and his wife, Sybil, a painter and ceramicist – both proud benefactors of the arts.
Evan Yurman, President of David Yurman says:
‘We are pleased to partner with Paris+ par Art Basel in their inaugural year to support their public art project ‘Sites’ in Paris – a city that, like our hometown of New York, is defined by art and artists. We at David Yurman feel connected to the city’s history, its people, its art, and are excited to be a part of this project with Paris+ to help amplify the French capital’s artistic roots.’
From October 20 to 23, students from the École du Louvre will be available between 3pm and 5.30pm at all four locations of the sector to guide visitors.
Curated by Pierre-Alexandre Mateos and Charles Teyssou, and located in the atmospheric Bal de la Marine, a docked boat next to the Tour Eiffel, the Conversations program will provide a platform for dynamic dialogues between leading figures from the artworld and the broader cultural sphere.
The Conversations program features 32 speakers across nine panels, bringing together leading artists, gallerists, collectors, curators, museum directors, and critics. Topics range from what erotic counter-readings of art history the queer art scene can offer to a discussion on how Pan-Africanism as an aspiring poetic and decolonial movement is being revitalized by a new generation of DJs, fashion designers and artists.
