Art Basel at SoundScape Park

Art Wall

Art Basel stages the world's premier art shows for Modern and contemporary works, sited in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong. Defined by its host city and region, each show is unique, which is reflected in its participating galleries, artworks presented, and the content of parallel programming produced in collaboration with local institutions for each edition. In addition to ambitious stands featuring leading galleries from around the world, each show's exhibition sectors spotlight the latest developments in the visual arts, offering visitors new ideas, new inspiration and new contacts in the art world.

The New World Center’s projection wall will be home to a selection of this year’s premiere program of films and videos titled “Our Hidden Futures.” Curated by Art Basel film curator David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions and London’s Artprojx, the lineup will highlight an international selection of emerging and established artists, encompassing a range of moving image works that illustrate the breadth of these various analogue and digital mediums.
