The Solo Project 2009

The Solo Project organisers are pleased to announce that after a successful first year in 2008, the project will double in size to 40 high quality contemporary galleries in 2009. Most of the booths have now been taken and the list of participating galleries will be published soon.

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 year, we are delighted to announce that Berta Sichel, head of the department of audiovisual works at the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, will select the film based works for the new Video section of The Solo Project.

Her Knowledge of the international scene will provide a welcome overview of contemporary practice in this area.

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.

The Solo Project will be open to the public from 8th till 14th of June. The official opening will be on Monday the 8th June between 11.00am and 15.00pm for invited guests and press and from 15.00pm till 20.00pm for general admission.

We sincerely hope that you will join us for what is becoming an important fixture of the international art calendar.
