This is a fabulous opportunity to get actively involved in an Art Basel project that promises to help bring the community together. This evening there will be an open house where you can meet the organizers and artists. Discover how you can get involved.
Basilea invites us to reflect on a city’s possibilities through a series of immersive projects connecting the City of Basel, its residents and the 90,000+ fairgoers anticipated to attend Art Basel. This project is conceived by artists Lara Almarcegui, Isabel Lewis, and architecture studio Recetas Urbanas led by Santiago Cirugeda.
Basilea aims to create awareness of the active role we, as citizens, have to intervene and alter any given urban environment, at an individual and collective level, encouraging discussions about the use and ownership of public space. The project includes a collectively built structure, a large-scale installation, a series of workshops, events, and occasions. Basilea is free and open to the public.
There are two open calls to participate in Basilea, one with Recetas Urbanas and one with Isabel Lewis. Find out how to get involved by attending this open house on April 11 starting at 6pm, or by visiting the CREATIVETIME website here!
