Words by Carlos Suarez De Jesus
“Here Lies Georges Wildenstein”: If we had to predict what will become the most trumpeted work during this year’s circus, look no further than our own homegrown Primary Projects. The rogue troika of Books IIII Bischof, Chris Oh, and Typoe’s new show with edgy works by 15 artists takes its name from an influential Parisian art dealer of Jewish descent who was stripped of his French nationality in 1940 and later accused of trafficking art with the Nazis. Among the highlights are Miru Kim’s Basel opus The Pig That Therefore I Am, where the artist will wallow nude in a glass enclosure full of live hogs. Her performance promises to leave local tongues wagging well into Noche Buena, the traditional Cuban roast-pork dinner that locals slaver over for Christmas Eve.
