Intro

There's one favourite destination for art lovers from around the world: Art Basel, the most prestigious international art fair. For the New York Times it's the "Olympics of art world", for the parisian daily Le Monde it's "The best of the world", for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung it's "Art in its best form" and Vogue calls it "the most beautiful temporary museum of the world".

Masterpieces and avant garde

The approximately 300 carefully selected best galleries from all over the world show high quality modern and contemporary art works. On show are paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, prints, video and multimedia art as well as performances by over 4,000 interesting artists. All the famous names are represented from the modern and contemporary masters like Picasso, Miró, Klee, Warhol and Jeff Koons to the newest generation.

Old favourites and new discoveries

The high quality, the wide variety and the international participation has brought Art Basel an unequalled reputation. Some 90,000 artists, gallery owners, museum directors, private collectors and other art lovers gather for what insiders call "the annual family meeting of the art world". Their interface with art and artists brings many thrilling and inspiring moments.

City of culture - Mecca of art

Throughout Art Basel, the cultural city of Basel gets a unique ambiance, reinforced by special events all over the city. Art has in fact always been in the heart of this lovely medieval city on the river Rhine. It hosts art museums of international reputations, sculptures in public spaces, theatres, concert halls and notable buildings by leading contemporary architects. Located at the borders of Switzerland, France and Germany, Basel is a transport hub, easily reachable from everywhere.

A visit of the city is always memorable especially during the international art fair Art Basel.
