CoBo features Art Basel 2016 Day 1: Unlimited

ART Power HK

Art Basel Unlimited, first introduced in 2000, offers galleries the space to showcase large installations that could not fit in a regular fair booth. Curated by Gianni Jetzer, curator at large for the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington. D.C., this edition of Unlimited is the largest ever, with some 88 monumental art works that is going to set the tone for the entire fair.

CoBo takes you an exclusive tour to the both historical and newer works by unmissable names like Anish Kapoor, Ai Weiwei, James Rosenquist, and many more.
