Art Basel

| Exhibition of modern and contemporary art

The Art | Basel, founded in 1970, is the world's leading art fair for modern and contemporary art. It takes place annually in June at the MCH Messe Basel and is organized by the MCH Group AG. The main themes of the fair are the presentation and celebration of modern and contemporary art. Works from great masters of modern art to the most talented emerging artists are showcased in various fields. Exhibits range from paintings and sculptures to installations, photographs, film, video, digital art, and much more.

Art | Basel not only promotes the local and national art scene but also attracts international attention to the Swiss art scene. Highlights of the fair include not just the presentations of artworks but also a diverse accompanying program, panel discussions, artist talks, and more. The exhibitors mainly come from the art industry, including galleries, museums, art foundations, and other artistic organizations. Visitors to the fair are mainly art collectors, art dealers, artists, curators, and other art enthusiasts. In addition to Basel, Art | Basel also takes place in other cities worldwide, including Miami Beach in the USA and Hong Kong, thereby further consolidating its status as the leading global art fair.

The Art in Basel took place from Thursday, 13. June to Sunday, 16. June 2024.
