Firmly established as Europe’s largest publisher of contemporary editions and prints, the Alan Cristea Gallery will present a variety of original and print works at this year’s Art Basel, several of which are on show for the first time. The gallery has been involved in Art Basel since its inception in the 1970s and its participation in this year’s fair follows the gallery’s success at Art Basel Hong Kong in May where it enjoyed record sales.

One such success in Hong Kong was the sale of several editions of Julian Opie’s new screenprint, Julian (2013), which will be exhibited for the first time in Europe at Art Basel. In addition, the gallery will show eleven of the artist’s prints from his 2012 Winter Landscapes series, alongside lenticulars from his French Landscapes (2013).
Prints by Pablo Picasso also proved popular in Hong Kong, where works including his 1968 etching La Vie En Rose were sold. In Basel, the gallery will show five of the artist’s most famous linocuts: Picador et Torero (1959), La Pique Cassée (1959), Portrait Stylisé de Jacqueline (1962), Grande Tete de Femme au Chapeau Orné (1962), and Nature Morte sous la Lampe (1962). These important prints provide collectors with the opportunity to own works by a hugely significant artist at a relatively accessible price point, selling for thousands rather than hundreds of thousands of euros.
A work specially commissioned for Art Basel Hong Kong by renowned British ceramicist and art historian Edmund de Waal generated much interest from audiences to the fair. At Art Basel, the gallery will again present a newly-commissioned work, Pillowbook (2013), inspired by the traditional Japanese Pillowbook Makura no Soshi, created in 10th Century Heian Japan by Sei Shonagon, court lady to Empress Consort Teishi. Acting as a vessel for recorded observations and musings, the Pillowbook explores the potential for physical objects to encapsulate or embody a specific period of its creator’s life. De Waal’s work features a grey-laquer, wall-mounted vitrine, in which seven shelves hold a total of forty-five hand-thrown porcelain vessels in celadon and cream glazes.
Also making its debut at the fair is a new lightbox edition by Michael Craig-Martin along with new print Art and Design 1917 (2013). The lightbox work sets a banal household object rendered in Craig-Martin’s trademark graphic-realist style against a black backdrop. The piece relates to several new paintings currently on show in Kunstmuseen Krefeld in Germany (until 1 September). Six works from this new lightbox series will also be shown later this year in the Alan Cristea Gallery’s forthcoming exhibition, Thirteen (10 October – 9 November).
On show by Turner-prize winner Dexter Dalwood will be his series The Apartment (after Delaxcroix) I-IV (2011), which references the hugely influential painting by French artist Delacroix, Femmes d’Alger dans leur appartement (1834). The display of Dalwood’s work at Art Basel coincides with an ongoing major retrospective of his work at Kunsthaus Centre PasquArt in Biel, Switzerland, which continues until 16 June 2013.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
