Product Description

This catalog is published in conjunction with the New Museum exhibition Lynette Yiadom-Boakey: Under-Song For A Cipher (May 3– September 10, 2017). Lynette Yiadom-Boakye's exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel marked the artist's first institutional solo in Switzerland, and filled the Kunsthalle's upstairs galleries with twenty-four new painting, initiating what was her largest show of new work to date. For her New Museum exhibition, Yiadom-Boakye is debuting a new body of work, all created in the first months of 2017. As part of an ongoing series of exhibitions that provide a focused look at artist's practices by presenting new bodies of work, this exhibition also takes part in the New Museum's long history of giving artists major solo museum exhibitions at pivotal points in their careers.

This catalog is a collaboration between Kunsthalle Basel and the New Museum and serves to document Yiadom-Boakye's ambitious exhibitions in both institutions. Within these pages, you will find essays from Robert Storr, Chris Ofili, Kunsthalle Basel’s director and curator Elena Filipovic and you will also find interviews by Massimiliano Gioni and Natalie Bell.
