Cat's Cradle
Exhibitions

Cat’s Cradle unites ten individual artists, ten independent points of view, and ten different approaches. Common to each is that Kunstkredit Basel-Stadt funded them in 2021, but what connects them beyond this?

Like the titular childhood game of string figures, which requires the interaction of at least two people to play, the exhibited works make clear that art does not exist in a vacuum. A web emerges between the exhibited positions and beyond. Threads are picked up, transformed, sometimes dropped: Cat’s Cradle, Jacob’s Ladder, Soldier’s Bed, Witch’s Broom. Which figures emerge?

The exhibition is curated by Len Schaller.
