This year’s Unlimited at Art Basel in Basel will include works from Ai Weiwei, Ed Atkins, Kenneth Anger, and Martin Creed. The section will include 74 presentations, only slightly fewer than last year’s (see 78 Artists Slated for Art Basel 2014’s Unlimited Section).

Since its inception in 2000 the Unlimited section of the fair has become a crowd pleaser (see Old-Fashioned Curating Trumps $2 Billion of Art for Sale at Art Basel) and this year’s iteration might well be another hit with fair goers.

Unlimited is curated by Gianni Jetzer this year, previously of the Swiss Institute, and who has recently been announced as joining the Hirshhorn Museum (see Gianni Jetzer to Be Hirshhorn Museum’s Curator at Large).

The program’s range of presentations will include a screening of a recently re-worked version of Kenneth Anger’s Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome (1954-2014) presented by Sprüth Magers, and a light-work titled Your Space Embracer from Olafur Eliasson, presented by Tanya Bonakdar Gallery.

Martin Creed will show a film on people’s interesting walks, Work No. 1701 (2013), presented by Gavin Brown’s enterprise and Hauser & Wirth.

Unlimited is a section dedicated to large-scale works and will run as part of the fair from June 18–21, 2015. Last year’s section held works from Carl Andre, Rosemarie Trockel, and Tacita Dean.

Meanwhile in the film section, Takashi Murakami’s first feature film will headline the program which was put together by Cairo-based film curator and lecturer Maxa Zoller (see Takashi Murakami’s Jellyfish Eyes to Headline Film at Art Basel in Basel).

There are a total of 283 galleries participating in the fair this year (see Here Is the 2015 Exhibitor List for Art Basel in Basel).
