Testimonials from Artists
“I come across very few people who can fully grasp the intersection of who I am as an artist, the artistic language that I want to communicate in, and further know how to expand that language while still maintaining a recognizable fingerprint within my practice. Whether it's through 2d work, video, or sound she's sensitive to who I am as an artist, the subject matter I'm dealing with, and the media that I'm dealing with. She has a strong artistic gage and vision that can support or guide an artist in exploring how to produce/present work in the most finely tuned effective form. I think this speaks to her thoughtful and generous spirit in getting to really know you as an artist and unending curiosity about the world we live in.”
—Nate Lewis, Artist, New York
“Regine has been a great mentor to and supporter of me. Regine helped me develop and synthesize my curatorial statement, which was critical to acceptance into the Artis Residency program. She is a great curator herself and designs shows with both the artist and the viewer in mind.”
—Charles Moore, author, art collector, and doctoral student at Columbia University

—Tahir Karmali, Artist, New York
“I worked with Regine a few times, in her role both as a curator and as a consultant, and it was always a wonderful, empowering experience. Regine has the unique ability to articulate subtle and complex themes in a clear way that doesn't fall to oversimplification. Regine has been my kind mentor for a few years now, any artist will be lucky to work and learn from her wisdom.”
—Tamar Ettun Zohar, Artist, New York
“Regine Basha is one of my closest and most trusted advisors. She combines her knowledge of art history and her vast experience in the art world with true care and sensitivity to artists. She has deep empathy and emotional intelligence, and at the same time, Regine has an understanding of contexts, social, political and economic. She approaches artists and projects with this unique combination, she is both strategic and soulful. I have known and worked with her for over 12 years and she has become a trusted confidant, someone I always turn to when in doubt, when I need to bounce ideas and especially when I consider the future of my art practice. I find her feedback and insight extremely valuable. Over the years she has helped me articulate my work and has always practiced her support in a calm and precise manner, whatever the circumstances. Working with Regine is inspiring and empowering, and very importantly, she is unconventional. Together we create and innovate and this process is generative and joyous.”
—Ana Prvacki, Artist, Berlin
