Another parallel event joining Basel this year is the-solo-project, presented by Paul Kusseneers Gallery in Antwerp.  This independent satellite fair features an international collection of galleries, carefully selected to showcase an in depth selection of work from the chosen artists.  This year, the-solo-project celebrates its fifth consecutive year and features a week-long, time coincident with Art Basel, exhibition titled ‘Solo Shows by Selected Galleries’.

“The fair consciously resembles more a series of considered gallery type shows in well constructed spaces, giving exhibited works more ‘room to breathe’, the artists more room to make a clear presentation and the visitors an environment in which the works can be considered as a body of work rather than on the basis of individual pieces” (the-solo-project).
