    Kunsthalle Basel

    Kunsthalle Basel

    Basel Arts and Culture

    Sadie Benning, Shared Eye. Sadie Benning’s (b. 1973, USA) body of new work is somewhere between sculpture, painting and photography. The exhibition entitled Shared Eye is Benning’s first institutional solo show in Europe. The works combining colored resin, digital snapshots, found photographs, objects and painted elements reflect on current American politics. They juxtapose the intimate and the anonymous, the digital present and an indeterminate analog past, putting viewers in front of the artist‘s highly personal response to the state of the world at a moment of deep political uncertainty.

In the evenings the ”Fasnächtler” wander through the narrow alleyways and fill the historic centre with the sound of music and revelry.
