Art Basel: Art Parcours

Art Parcours is the lastest entry to Art Basel's lineup of sections, one that Sarah Douglas says gave "a whiff of biennale spirit to the centre of art-world commerce" with nine installations deposited in various sites throughout the city. Curated by Jens Hoffmann, director of the CCA Wattis Institute in San Francisco, the project paired each urban locale with a "rhyming piece" by the artists involved. This link takes you to Sarah Douglas' ARTINFO article on Art Parcours.
