Zilia Sánchez’s sculptural practice will be presented in Basel for the first time, highlighting the artist’s evolving interest in completely free-standing work. A recently realized sculpture in bronze, Concepto II (2019), is comprised of two freestanding parts to form a symbiotic pair. The sculpture shares visual characteristics with Sánchez’s historic paintings, demonstrating how she has repeatedly explored a set of core motifs across her lifetime. The artist’s first full retrospective, Zilia Sánchez: Soy Isla, closed in 2020 at El Museo del Barrio after touring through the Phillips Collection, Washington, DC and the Museo de Arte de Ponce, Puerto Rico.
