Art Basel is undoubtedly the most influential art show in the world, attracting art lovers, collectors, gallerists and artists from around the globe. Since its first edition in 1970, the art trade fair in Messe Basel quickly became the iconic place where the international art world meets. It is attended by nearly 300 galleries and receives more than 90,000 visitors each year– in fact, the last edition of the fair welcomed 95,000 visitors.
With annual shows in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong, Art Basel serves as a global art platform, uniting artists and representatives of leading museums and galleries. Each venue defines the spirit of the event it hosts, presents visual artworks unique to the region, and collaborates with local institutions. The city of Basel plays an important part in Art Basel experience; the historical quarters are even integrated into the Parcours section of the fair.
Art Basel provides a wide range of discussion topics, such as the understanding of art from historical and geographical perspective, the collection and exhibition of works of art, and many more. In addition, the recently developed mobile app of Art Basel gives access to the latest show updates, interactive floor plans, as well as a detailed catalog of the participating galleries.
