In pictures: melancholy fountain, curtain call and a broom with a view at Art Basel’s Unlimited

Gianni Jetzer, the curator of Art Basel’s section for supersized sculptures, installations and performances, describes it as a “brutally honest group show”. The 75 artists’ projects selected for this year’s Unlimited are, like the seven previous editions Jetzer has overseen, drawn from applications from the fair’s participating galleries. “It’s not about the curatorial concept,” he says, but about corralling disparate practices within the vast fair in a way that maintains “a certain contact” between the works, while allowing each to inhabit “its own eccentric universe”. Here, Jetzer, the curator-at-large at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC, takes us on a tour of six highlights from his eighth and final Unlimited.
