What is Art Basel? Why should I visit?

In 1970, three Swiss gallerists turned their dream of a prestigious art fair into reality and, in doing so, proved that Switzerland isn’t all Nazi gold and stolen watercolours.

Nowadays, Art Basel has grown into a global phenomenon by showcasing the widest range of artistic genres imaginable - so if you love art, we highly recommend getting yourself to Switzerland's beautiful city of Basel in June. 

What can I expect to see that's so artistic?

This year, the idyllic Swiss city hosts almost 300 of the world's leading modern and contemporary art galleries will be displaying paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, prints, photography, film, video, and digital art by over 4,000 artists.

As well as the world's most prestigious galleries loaning their artwork, Art Basel’s VIP Service promises to connect you with leading art patrons, collectors, museum directors and curators, art advisors, and internationally known artists and galleries.
