Since the first of October 2004, the gallery is managed by the three partners Arnaldo Carzaniga, Philipp Hediger and Markus Rück. They have continued the previous activities of the former Galerie Carzaniga + Ueker. The gallery’s aim has always been the same: to show exhibitions of classic Swiss art (incl. Gruppe Rot-Blau and Gruppe 33) as well as abstract expressionism, informal art and contemporary art from Switzerland, Germany and Italy. The gallery’s focus lies on painting, alongside we represent a variety of other media such as drawing, sculpture or photography. The gallery’s rooms, spread over two historic buildings in the old town of Basel, offer an accentuated contrast and beautiful surroundings for the 20th and 21st century’s art. Accompanying the exhibitions, which change every 6 to 8 weeks, we publish catalogues and monographs.
At this year’s Art Basel Galerie Carzaniga will present outstanding works of a wide variety of classic as well as contemporary artists. One of the highlights will be a principal work of Hermann Scherer, an expressive landscape with a female nude on the reverse. From the vivid lines in the works of Mark Tobey and Lenz Klotz to the bright colors of Sam Francis or Samuel Buri, from the delicate objects of Flavio Paolucci to the the archaic stone and bronze sculptures of Yves Dana, from the classic works of Niklaus Stoecklin to the progressive ideas of the Gruppe 33 there will be a wide range of different styles and techniques, united by the close connection to the continuously further developing art scene of Basel and Switzerland.
