    Through the Lens: How Photography Became Africa’s Most Popular Art Form

    BY Sean O'Toole. Last fall, Jeanne Mercier, a French critic and curator based in Portugal, traveled to London to launch a new book. Her destination was the 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair, then commencing its fifth edition in the city of its founding, and the subject was Being a Photographer in Africa: The Ten Years of Afrique in Visu. Lavishly illustrated and packed with essays and interviews, the book draws on a significant history accumulated by the website Afrique in Visu, which has become an indispensable resource for followers of African photography. It also chronicles the emergence of a medium that, in the last two decades, has become contemporary Africa’s foremost art form.

    Mercier created the site—whose name melds French with Latin and loosely translates as “Africa as we see it”—with her husband, the photographer Baptiste de Ville d’Avray, in Mali in 2006. As …

    ‘A Luxury Problem’: As Art Basel 2018 Rolls On, the Sales Beat Continues

    BY Judd Tully. The biggest distraction from the 49th edition of Art Basel is the giant, exhausting, and fantastic Bruce Nauman retrospective “Disappearing Acts” at the Schaulager museum a few tram stops away. And the occasion, slated for a forthcoming stint in New York in October—when it will take up a home at the Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1—has a bit of commerce to go along with it.

    Sperone Westwater sold Nauman’s new Contrapposto Split, a 3-D video projection that turns the exhibition space into an extension of the artist’s studio, and Leaping Foxes, a new hanging …

    Freelands Foundation Issues Report on Gender Disparity, Reveals Award Shortlist for Institutions Working with Female Artists

    BY Alex Greenberger. The Freelands Foundation in London has issued a report on gender disparity in the British art world as measured last year with a pointed assertion at its core: “Female artists are still under-represented in the art world in 2017 despite outnumbering men studying in art school.”

    During the period reviewed, the study found, women counted for just 28 percent of the artists represented by London’s major commercial galleries. At non-commercial galleries, only 22 percent of exhi…

    Site Seeing: Basel Locals Pick Art, Gardens, and Boats to See Beyond the Fairs

    BY Andrew Russeth. With the first opening day of Art Basel over (today is another VIP-only day) it is time for some of us to wander about this charming city of 170,000, which is filled with top-notch museums, remarkable architecture, and other jewels. There is almost too much to choose from, particularly when you consider the surrounding area. Matthias Grünewald’s 16th-century masterpiece, the Isenheim Altarpiece, is located a short train ride away in Colmar, France, and ditto for Le Corbusier’s Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp, as an art dealer reminded me yesterday.

    But what about the things you don’t necessarily know about? For those on the hunt for art experiences, a few Basel locals were kind enough to share advice about what to see while in town during the …

    As Art Basel 2018 Begins, First-Day Sales Rack Up in Wake of Buoyant Market

    BY Judd Tully. The 49th edition of Art Basel opened to the first tranche of VIP guests on Tuesday morning, sparking a mild-mannered stampede across a two-level emporium heaving with booths presented by some 290 galleries. The art market, especially for contemporary work, is rather buoyant these days, as evidenced by last month’s auctions in New York and the demand displayed by a band of international collectors. Similar to action surrounding the auction industrial complex, a number of sales took place before Art Basel even opened its doors.

    Such was the case for a handsome geometric abstraction by Stanley Whitney: Untitled (1999), which sold from the booth for Lisson Gallery for $400,000. Also already spoken for was David Hockn…
