Art Basel 2019

Art Basel, in Switzerland, gathers the best of international art, presenting the main world galleries. In addition to the stands, a full program of lectures takes place daily, and exhibitions and events are also offered at cultural institutions in the city and region. 



The main part of Art Basel is the gallery sector. Visitors will discover a range of modern and contemporary works including paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, prints, photographs, video and digital art, produced by over 4,000 artists.



The Feature sector brings projects by well-known and historic artists, precisely curated by gallerists. Projects can include solo performances, juxtapositions and themed exhibitions by artists representing a wide range of cultures, generations and artistic approaches.



Statements features exciting solo projects by emerging artists, who are eligible to receive the Baloise Art Prize. The Baloise Group also purchases works of art from award-winning artists, and donates them to leading art institutions in Europe.



Curated by Gianni Jetzer, Unlimited is Art Basel's pioneering exhibition platform for projects that transcend the traditional booth, including giant paintings and sculptures, video projections, large-scale installations and live performances.



The Parcours sector involves the public and visitors to the fair, placing sculptures site-specific, interventions, and performances around the fair. Works by renowned established artists and emerging talent will be on display at Münsterplatz in Basel. Parcours is curated by Samuel Leuenberger, from the SALTS exhibition space.
