Art Basel meets Film Festival

This edition of Art Basel, a show that presents the best art galleries and artworks from all over the world, there will be a collaboration with an internationally name on the film festivals field: Film Festival Locarno (Aug 05-Aug 15). The first result of this collaboration will be a special program dedicated to Duncan Campbell.

Two big and important events get together to show the significant synergy that exists between the top events that have a Switzerland label.

To launch the new partnership, the Festival and Art Basel’s film sector have conceived a program dedicated to the Irish artist Duncan Campbell, which will be shown at the Basel event (Friday, 19 June, 20:00). The film works that will be presented include It For Others, for what the artist has been awarded with the Turner Prize 2014.

Carlo Chatrian, Artistic Director of the Festival del film Locarno: “We are very happy to inaugurate this prestigious collaboration. It not only represents a convergence of interests  pleasingly effected by the invitation to Duncan Campbell  but also a step towards strong inter-action between two of the most important Swiss and international events.

Marc Spiegler, Director of Art Basel: “We are delighted to be working with the Festival del film Locarno on bringing the work of Duncan Campbell back to Basel. Early on in his career, Duncan Campbell was presented in our 2008 Statements sector and won the Baloise Art Prize. He went on to win the Turner Prize in 2014, so it is great to see him working with the Festival del film Locarno on an exciting program for Basel.
