Swiss Hit

Art collectors who travel from New York to the Art Basel fair in Basel, Switzerland, this month will be greeted by a familiar but delightful sight. The booth of New York gallery David Zwirner will showcase Yutaka Sone’s Little Manhattan (2007–2009), a meticulously detailed map of the island carved from two and a half tons of white marble. The Zwirner gallery is among more than 300 that will exhibit at the 42nd edition of the fair, which takes place from June 15 to 19. Zwirner’s varied display also will feature “monument” for V. Tatlin (1964), a significant early work by Dan Flavin, who pioneered the medium of fluorescent light.

New York gallery Mitchell-Innes & Nash intends to bring a handful of works by Jean Arp, among them Torse-feuille (1963/82), a sleek bronze that stands nearly 34 inches high. In addition, the gallery will devote a room in its booth to works on paper created by Alberto Giacometti between the mid-1950s and mid-1960s. The Arps will range from $250,000 to $450,000, while the Giacomettis will be priced at $150,000 to $300,000.  (www.artbasel.com)
