My Art Guide Basel 2012 is Media Partner of Liste 17
June 12- 17
Since its inception in 1996, LISTE has set about the task of introducing exclusively galleries of a new generation that are involved in the zeitgeist and represent important young artists. In this way, LISTE has made a consequential and important contribution to the promotion of emerging artists and young galleries. The number of galleries, 64, has intentionally been kept low – only the most important newer galleries from across the globe – and that has helped to create LISTE’s great success. Over the last several years, a number of LISTE’s galleries have been able to make the leap repeatedly to “Statements” or “Feature” at Art Basel but, due to gallery age, have been unable to secure for themselves a permanent space at the fair.
LISTE has responded to this situation by adjusting its acceptance policy so that important former exhibitors at LISTE are still able to present at the fair. LISTE is committed to its very strict selection policy – showing forward-looking and trend-setting positions by younger artists under 40.
