Marcia Hafif (b.1929, USA, living in New York and Laguna Beach) is among the pioneers of the 1970s who fundamentally broadened con­ceptions of the practice of painting and under­standing of art per se. Since the 1980s, terms like ‘radical’ have been used to describe Hafif’s work with monochrome painting. The pencil on paper drawings, vertical pencil marks cover­ ing a surface, begun in 1972, led to the ver­tical stroke in paint. Her work in both mediums still continues, fitting within what she calls The Inventory. Each series included in The Inventorydevelops a single medium using tra­ditional methods and materials for making paint and preparing a ground. Individual works in a series can be larger or smaller, and usually are made with vertical brush­strokes, with which the effects of unmixed colours on a suit­able painting ground are sounded out. Works from the series that may be her most radical will be exhibited at the Kunsthaus Baselland: the Black Paintings(1979/80) in which she found black by layering ultramarine blue and burnt umber. There will also be photographs and films on display.

MAJA RIEDER

Maja Rieder (b.1979, CH, lives in Basel) has engaged with the question of how drawing can create a connection to space consistently since she started making art. Rieder’s drawing is not a countour or a descriptive line, but the creation of concrete formulations, such as geometric basic forms in graphite – mostly in powder form –, through overlappings or folds of sheets of paper or long paper rolls. By overlapping, folding, as well as what is left out, uncovered and the paper fields that are thus left free, positive and negative forms and figures are created, some of which are installed across broad spaces by the artist, to influence the architectural space. This will be Maja Rieder’s largest exhibition to date; the artist will exhibit across the whole lower floor of the Kunsthaus Baselland. A publi- cation about Maja Rieder will be produced by the Verlag für moderne Kunst, Vienna.
