Art Basel in Basel takes place from 13 to 16 June 2019. This year, 290 leading international galleries will present works ranging from the Modern period of the early 20th century to the most contemporary artists. While galleries from Europe continue to be strongly represented, the show also features returning and new exhibitors from across the globe, including Asia, Europe, North and South America, the Middle East and Africa.
The show's main sector will comprise 232 of the world's leading galleries, showing painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography, video and editioned works of the highest quality. Premier galleries specializing in Modern and historical works from across the globe will once again return to Basel.
Taking place again on the upper floor of Hall 1, Unlimited, Art Basel's unique platform for projects that transcend the limitations of a traditional art-fair stand, is curated for the eighth and final year by Gianni Jetzer, Curator-at-Large at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC.
Featuring site-specific sculptures, interventions and performances presented by Art Basel's exhibitors, Parcours will return for its tenth edition to the old city of Basel. The sector is once again curated by Samuel Leuenberger, founder of the non-profit exhibition space SALTS in Birsfelden, Switzerland.
