Art Basel takes place from June 14 to June 19, 2016 at Messe Basel; this is the world’s leading art fair for modern and contemporary art. 286 leading galleries from 33 countries will be showing works by more than 4,000 artists, ranging from the modern to rising stars in contemporary art, at the 47th Art Basel in Basel. This year’s Art Basel promises an eventful week for artists, collectors, curators, critics and connoisseurs, together with the exhibitions and events offered by local cultural institutions.
The show’s individual sectors represent every artistic medium: paintings, sculpture, installations, videos, multiples, prints, photography, and performance. 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.
