Art Basel is the premier international art show of its kind for modern and contemporary works.
This year over 300 leading galleries from all over the world converge on the Swiss city of Basel to showcase the highest-quality paintings, sculpture, drawings, installations, photographs, video and editioned works. Every artistic medium is represented here, as it has been the organizers' mission to be a driving force in supporting the role that galleries play in the nurturing of artists as well as the development and promotion of visual arts.
Each day offers a full program of events, including symposiums, films, and artist talks. Further afield, exhibitions and events are offered by cultural institutions in Basel and the surrounding area, creating an exciting, region-wide art week.
