Become a Friend(s) of Liste
Founded in 2017, Friends of Liste is a group of sponsors dedicated to supporting a new generation of galleries that promote the latest positions in contemporary art. In 2022 the following 14 galleries and their artist had been selected by the Friends of Liste Board, together with the Liste Committee, to receive support for their particularly committed stand presentations:
Bel Ami, Los Angeles
Embajada, San Juan
Good Weather, North Little Rock/Chicago
LC Queisser, Tbilisi
Harlesden High Street, London
Peana, Monterrey/Mexiko City
Piedras, Buenos Aires
The Naked Room, Kyiv
The Ryder, Madrid
This year Friends of Liste made a unique commitment to Ukrainian galleries and artists. With the support of Friends of Liste, the Eckenstein-Geigy Foundation and the Foundation for the Promotion of Contemporary Art Basel, we were able to welcome the Ukrainian galleries The Naked Room and Voloshyn to Liste Art Fair Basel 2022. In addition, the galleries LC Queisser, Sandwich and Suprainfinit were committed to giving Ukrainian art a platform by expanding their fair presentations with Ukrainian artists.
With your membership, you directly support young galleries’ participation in the fair and strengthen Liste’s position as a place of discovery. Moreover, you enable the galleries at Liste Art Fair Basel to realise outstanding artistic projects and thereby make a substantial contribution to the visibility of the world's most contemporary art.
As a Friend of Liste, you also enjoy exclusive benefits, such as a meet-and-greet with the supported galleries in Basel, where you can learn more about the stand presentations that you supported from the people directly involved. In addition to individual memberships, we also offer a membership for companies. Alternatively, should you prefer a higher donation instead of an annual fee combined with exclusive benefits, you can also choose to become a Patron of Liste.
Benefits of being a Friend of Liste
- VIP status (including VIP ticket and preview invitation, early access to Liste Showtime Online)
- Invitation to the Friends of Liste apéro during the fair
- Exclusive guided tour through Liste and a meet-and-greet with the supported galleries
