Art Basel

Red. The color of sex and death, of vitality and rage, of lipstick and viscera. Red incites us, but it is also the color that demands we stop absolutely. It is—for all its contradictions and perhaps because of them—a color the effects of which run very deep.

For its presentation at Art Basel 2019, Lévy Gorvy has assembled a group of modern and contemporary masterworks connected by red. Prominent in some of the works and discreet or totally absent in others, this hue resonates, perhaps more than any other, with the themes and emotions that define our times.

In addition to these works, Lévy Gorvy’s presentation in Booth F9 will feature a selection of important paintings and sculptures by artists anchored in the gallery’s program, including Enrico Castellani, Jutta Koether, Carol Rama, Germaine Richier, Pierre Soulages, and Günther Uecker. Rooted in both tradition and radical innovation, these works will be complemented by significant paintings and sculptures by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Daniel Buren, Eduardo Chillida, Bruce Nauman, and Christopher Wool, among others.
