Cecilia Alemani

Artistic Director of Art Basel Cities: Buenos Aires and Art Basel Cities Week 2018, Curator of ‘Hopscotch (Rayuela)’

Cecilia Alemani is the Donald R. Mullen, Jr. Director & Chief Curator of High Line Art, the public art program presented by the non-profit organization Friends of the High Line in New York City. She was the curator of the Italian Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale. Since 2012, she has commissioned and curated public art projects on the High Line by over two hundred artists. 

To carve out a multilayered program that draws on the city’s rich cultural heritage and the excitement and energy of its art scene, Alemani has worked with Argentine and international artists

‘Hopscotch (Rayuela)’ participating artists include Eduardo Basualdo, Pia Camil, Maurizio Cattelan, Gabriel Chaile, Alex Da Corte, Santiago de Paoli, David Horvitz, Leandro Katz, Barbara Kruger, Luciana Lamothe, Ad Minoliti, Eduardo Navarro, Mika Rottenberg, Mariela Scafati, Vivian Suter, and Stan VanDerBeek.

Staged across three neighborhoods in the Argentine capital, ‘Hopscotch’ will traverse the city, with site-specific sculptures, experiential installations, and live performances by artists.

Works realized for the Art Basel Cities Week will infiltrate the fabric of the city, creating new experiences to function as platforms for different encounters with art against the unique background of the city.
