Alicja Kwade and Michaela Meise in Art Basel Parcours

Alicja Kwade and Michaela Meise will be showing works as part of this year's Art Basel Parcours. The 2015 edition of Parcours will be sited in the historical center of Basel around the city’s iconic cathedral, infiltrating key locations such as the Museum of Culture, the Natural History Museum, the Town Hall and the Münsterplatz itself. 23 site-specific artworks by internationally renowned as well as emerging artists will be featured, the biggest selection to date, including works by Alexandra Bachzetsis, Davide Balula, Adriano Costa, Alicia Framis, Piero Golia, Tobias Kaspar, Alicja Kwade, Nate Lowman, Michaela Meise, Jonathan Monk, Vik Muniz, Ciprian Mureşan, Peter Regli, David Renggli, Ugo Rondinone, Yves Scherer, Lara Schnitger, Alyson Shotz, Daniel Silver, Philippe Thomas, Blair Thurman and Francisco Tropa.Parcours looks to engage with Basel’s past and present by weaving artistic interventions into the fabric of the specific location each edition inhabits. Florence Derieux, Director of FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, will curate Parcours for the third consecutive year. The sector will be open to the public from Wednesday June 17 to Sunday June 21, culminating in Parcours Night on Saturday June 20—an evening of late night openings of all Parcours projects, a special intervention by Lara Schnitger and an evening program curated by Derieux of performances by Rosa Barba, Julien Bismuth and Erkka Nissinen as well as a DJ set by Haroon Mirza with London-based band Factory Floor. As part of the evening, Art Basel with HeK (House of electronic Arts Basel) will present a new live performance byEdwin van der Heide. “LSP” is a series in which the artist creates composed relationships between light and sound in space
