Theaster Gates & The Black Monks Of Mississippi - Black Madonna (Art Edition) - 2018 SOLD OUTKunstmuseum Basel (June - October 2018), which spreads out across two of the museum’s venues, Theaster Gates explores 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 Theaster Gates realizes them in an ongoing, vivid form – he turns the museum space into a site of creative production and interaction.
