Until the 31st of July 2010, the gallery Laleh June in Basel presents a group show with the title “Beauty is Diamond”. The exhibition includes works by Ed Ruscha, Behrouz Rae, Anoush Abrar, George Condo, Marc Rembold, Bruce Nauman, Joseph Kosuth, Julian Schnabel, Dexter Dalwood, Claes Oldenburg, Philippe Zumstein and Peter Zimmermann.
“The group exhibition Beauty is Diamond will bring together across different media works by group of artists (born between 1930s to 1970s) to explore the notion of Beauté in a poetic, pop and humorous context. The artists selected for their emphasis on the physical forms to definition, Beauty (self-interpretation) and its interrelationship with the society and art. The “Diamond” makes refrence to the questions of the divinity, banality and the temporality in relation with the notion of the “Beauty”and its nature and form in art. The ”Diamond” is a proof that the concept of ”Beauté” is still vital in contemporary art.” (Excerpt from the press release).
