Folkert de Jong in Artnet News

The Shooting….1st of July by Folkert de Jong

Dorian Batycka highlighted several artworks from Art Basel in Artnet News, including The Shooting….1st of July (2006) by Folkert de Jong. Batycka writes: “Art Basel, which opens to the public this week, is one of the biggest art-market moments of the year. But it is Unlimited, Art Basel’s distinctive platform for large-scale projects, that places a special emphasis on big. This year, the Messeplatz hosts 70 large-scale artworks ranging from a hanging sculpture made from a shipping container by Kennedy Yanko to a monumental 1988 painting by Keith Haring. This year’s edition is curated by Giovanni Carmine, director of the Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen.”
