Finally the weekend is here! Which means all those art-lovers caught up with work during the week now have the chance to enjoy some good Art at artgenève – until Sunday evening.
As mentioned in my post from yesterday in the first part of this *Top Booths* selection, artgenève is focused on quality over quantity. This is also translated in the significant portion of its floor space dedicated to non-commercial ventures, including many local public and private organizations. The scale of this institutional commitment is impressive. Just take the Estate Show: this monumental 2000 sqm light installation titled Vertical Works by Anthony McCall is a highlight of the famous Michael Ringier Collection. Close to the Peroni Lounge, The Ball Room presents sculptures from participating galleries in an opera foyer setting, an original design group show. The installation Habibi, a giant human skeleton by Adel Abdessemed, hovers over the fair’s entrance, which completes the non-commercial programme.
I have selected for you 11 more *Top Booths* – a nice blend of commercial and non-commercial spaces. Enjoy!
