Featuring artists, museum directors, collectors, and curators, Art Basel’s series of talks in Miami Beach will offer intimate dialogs between prominent members of the international art world.

Conversations, Art Basel’s talks series that highlights important issues by bringing together influential art world personalities, will open on Thursday, December 4, with the Premiere Artist Talk, which this year will feature legendary American artist Lynda Benglis. Looking at new funding models of the visual arts, Friday’s Conversation will pair Dennis Scholl, Collector and Vice President, Knight Foundation, with Stephanie Pereira, International Partnership Lead at Kickstarter, plus the gallerist Jérôme Poggi from Paris. The panel discussion will be moderated by András Szántó. Conversations will also present the latest edition of Hans Ulrich Obrist’s ongoing series looking at artistic practice, entitled ‘The Artist as Curator’, with the artists Joseph Kosuth, Liu Ding, Martha Rosler, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Martha Wilson.

Salon, the open platform for shorter presentations during the afternoon, will feature artist talks, panel discussions, lectures with curators, museum directors, and artists. Performance will be a key consideration, with an artist talk with Ryan McNamara and Claire Bishop; a panel discussion with several performance artists featured in Public and Nicholas Baume; an artist talk with Chinese artist and choreographer Shen Wei; and Marina Abramović on a panel entitled ‘Materials for Immateriality’, moderated by Sam Keller, Director of Fondation Beyeler.

On Friday, December 5, Chrissie Iles, curator at the Whitney Museum, New York will lead a talk with David Gryn, curator of Art Basel’s Film sector and artists Tabor Robak and Rachel Rose, looking at artists as digital revolutionaries.

DETAILED CONVERSATIONS PROGRAM

Thursday, December 4, Premiere, Artist Talk, Lynda Benglis

Lynda Benglis, whose innovative and vivid sculptures have been challenging the art establishment for half a century, will inaugurate this year’s Conversations series. Her work is about expression of space, color, texture and substance – materials that have been widely explored in her remarkable career. But Lyndas’ art also thematizes sex, power and gender, as infamously stated with her advertisement in the ‘Artforum’ November issue of 1974, which startled the 1970s artworld and provoked unpredictable responses. Today, 40 years later, how far have we (not) progressed?

Friday, December 5, Public/Private, New Funding Models for the Visual Arts

The conversation explores a number of pressing matters surrounding the question of funding for the arts in general and visual arts in particular, amongst the context of a booming art market. The panel will discuss possibilities to ensure that adequate resources continue to flow not only to commercially popular artists, but also to the many non-profit organizations that contribute to a healthy ecology for the visual arts.
