Hall 2.0, Booth C7
At its inaugural Art Basel booth, Corbett vs. Dempsey presents a focused historical view of False Image, one of the original Imagist exhibition groups. False Image convened for two shows at the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago in 1968 and 1969. Comprised of Roger Brown, Eleanor Dube, Philip Hanson, and Christina Ramberg, the quartet of artists is represented by paintings, objects, and drawings from the era – many of them shown in either The False Image or False Image II – together with all the ephemeral materials the group produced: posters, postcard sets, illustrated price lists, and decal sets. This is the first presentation to isolate False Image from the other Imagist groups, such as the Hairy Who. On the occasion of the fair, CvsD has produced a special 72-page catalog, fully illustrated with biographies and a historical overview by John Corbett.
