Art Basel Online Viewing Room

“The heart of art is the search for form that is electrifying, that gives life to our vision...This is the language of emotion. Anesthetic is to kill feeling. Aesthetic is the opposite, aesthetic is feeling. The thing that is most important is the dream, the vision for what doesn’t exist that could exist.”

                                                                           —Mark di Suvero

Paula Cooper Gallery is pleased to participate in Art Basel’s second edition of Online Viewing Rooms. On view in the gallery's presentation are exemplary works of painting, sculpture, and photography from our landmark program of artists—from pioneers of Conceptual and Minimal art in the 1960s through leading voices of contemporary artmaking today—including Carl Andre, Tauba Auerbach, Jennifer Bartlett, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Sarah Charlesworth, Mark di Suvero, Dan Flavin, Charles Gaines, Ja’Tovia Gary, Julian Lethbridge, Sol LeWitt, David Novros, Walid Raad, Joel Shapiro, and Jackie Winsor. The Online Viewing Room launches its Preview for guests with an Art Basel VIP account on Wednesday, June 17 at 7am ET. It will be publicly available on Friday, June 19 at 7am ET and will remain live until Friday, June 26 at 7am ET.
