Private Sales - Theaster Gates - Black Madonna prints - 2018

Theaster Gates – Black Madonna print set

In his exhibition 'Black Madonna' at the Kunstmuseum Basel (June - October 2018), which spreader out across two of the museum’s venues, Theaster Gates explored the cult surrounding the Black Madonna, examining her political, aesthetical and metaphorical power and showcasing new works made especially for the occasion of the exhibition. Carrying on his ideas to work with archival practice Gates realized them in an ongoing, vivid form – he turned the museum space into a site of creative production and interaction.

Collaborating with The Vinyl Factory, the VF Lathe was installed on site to record the music sessions directly and become part of the performance. Occupying galleries on two floors of the museum Gates set up a temporary sound studio and printing workshop where numerous live performances and interventions by the artist took place, inviting the visitors to partake in this collective musical, poetical and spiritual experience.
