Art Basel

A Brief Look

Galleries from the four corners of the world curate modern and contemporary art to showcase at one of the world’s showstopper events – Art Basel! The international trade show highlights the skill and artistry of the biggest artists of the day as well as emerging talents. It has been doing so for nearly half a century since its first edition in 1970 and its audience coming to Messe Basel has only grown since then. Last year, saw 291 galleries showcase their treasures to an audience of 95,000 visitors among which 40,000 were international.

An Industry Profile

It’s going to take you more than the four days allotted to Art Basel to get through the sheer volume of artworks on display. Between every participating gallery, there are going to be above 4000 artists represented. Their talents encompass paintings, drawings, sculpture, installations, prints, photography, video and digital art. Another highly praised feature of the fair is the series of conversations on the global contemporary art scene. Subjects vary wildly from the expected pitfalls to producing and collecting art to the ingenious methods of preserving and exhibiting art. Who’s in attendance?  Gallerists, curators, collectors, architects, art lawyers and critics.
