TEFAF - Night Fishing 2015

Curator: Sydney Picasso

A new curated presentation complements TEFAF Modern, by presenting artists that have previously not been shown at the fair, but nevertheless have an art historical connection with works that are currently exhibited. The exhibition evolves around the idea of sculpture which is the subject of a current and on-going redefinition.

The title Night Fishing evokes a very ancient process, which is still in practice in many parts of the world, where fishermen use a lamp to catch fish at night.

Participating artists and participating galleries:

Georg Baselitz - Thaddeus Ropac, Salzburg
Tony Cragg - Buchmann Galerie, Berlin / Lugano
Richard Deacon - Galerie Thomas Schulte, Berlin
Christina Iglesias - Elba Benitez, Madrid
Wolfgang Laib - Konrad Fischer Galerie, Dusseldorf & Berlin
Mark Manders - ZenoX, Antwerp
Nam June Paik - Galerie Hans Mayer, Düsseldorf
Markus Raetz - Farideh Cadot Associés, Paris

TEFAF Night Fishing is complemented by a TEFAF publication and includes essays by: Chris Fite-Wassilak, Jan Teeuwisse, Sydney Picasso, Mark Kremer and Damian Taylor.

Concept: Hidde van Seggelen
