for its 49th annual edition in Switzerland, from 14-17 June, with a total of just over 293 galleries (compared to 291 last year), coming from 35 countries in Europe, North – and South America, Asia and Africa.
Seventeen galleries will enter the fair for the first time this year, including White Space Beijing, Freedman Fitzpatrick (Los Angeles), Essex Street (New York), Hosfelt Gallery (San Francisco) and Franklin Parrasch Gallery (New York).
This year Art Basel introduces a new site for its “Unlimited” sector, which shows ambitious projects that transcend the spatial possibilities of a standard cabin: the top floor of Hall 1. The section is being composed for the seventh time by Gianni Jetzer, curator-by -large at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC.
Meanwhile, in “Statements” again solo projects of emerging artists are shown and “Feature” includes solo presentations, juxtapositions and thematic exhibitions.
