ART BASEL 2023
Jacqueline de Jong: 1960s
Feature | Booth D16
Preview days: 13-14 June 2023
Public days: 15-18 June 2023
On the occasion of Art Basel 2023, Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is delighted to present a curated booth of Jacqueline de Jong’s works from the 1960s, a formative decade in the artist’s development that saw her splinter from the radical Situationist International (SI).
Highlighting de Jong’s pioneering cultural contribution to an almost exclusively male international and intercultural avant-garde, the presentation features rare and early works, many housed in international private collections since their execution.
The presentation comes at a time of increasing global recognition for de Jong, following recent solo museum exhibitions at Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Les Abattoirs, Toulouse; WIELS, Brussels; MOSTYN, Wales; and Kunstmuseum Ravensburg. In 2024, NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale, Florida will host de Jong’s first solo institutional exhibition in the US.
The artist’s archive, Jacqueline de Jong Papers, was acquired in 2011 by the Beinecke Library of Rare Books and Manuscripts, Yale University. In 2019 the AWARE Prize for Women Artists presented de Jong with the Outstanding Merit Award in recognition of her exceptional career. In May 2023, de Jong was named Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture.
