Martine Syms

For the release of their new issue #30, as they attempt to “create a snapshot of what’s happening in visual culture now”, Depot Basel collaborates with  KALEIDOSCOPE Magazine during Art Basel, showcasing the work of Martine Syms.

Join us and KALEIDOSCOPE Magazine on Friday 16 June at Voltaplatz 43 from 7–10 pm for a live set by London-based DJ and producer Shamos.

Their special anniversary edition premiering at Art Basel presents young Los Angeles-based artist Martine Syms with a spin-off to her first US solo museum exhibition at New York’s MoMA.

“Often described as “conceptual entrepreneur”, Syms combines autobiographical material with historical narratives and tropes from popular culture, examining representations of blackness and its relationship to American vernacular, situation comedy, feminist movements and radical traditions.”

All elements come together in an immersive experience, showcasing the magazine as a multi-platform and experimental space for new possibilities in visual culture.
