Artworks to Kill For: See 45 Highlights from Art Basel

Not one work is for sale at the booth of New York gallery Essex Street. It is, instead, showing works by the excellent Cameron Rowland that are available to rent, including some that have been previously rented by collectors for fixed periods and returned. One new work is also on view, ”Lawfully carried, but dangerous to life, would facilitate escape” (2019), which takes the form of two shoelaces hanging over a nail. A text by Rowland accompanying the work reads, “Jail and immigration detention centers require shoelaces be removed at the point of booking or detention.”
