Art Basel

Welcome to Art Basel

Since 1970, Art Basel’s goal has been to connect the world's premier galleries and their patrons, as well serving as a meeting point for the international art world. Now, over forty years later, its three fairs - in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami Beach rank as the premier shows of their kind, presenting 20th and 21st century art with a strong curatorial perspective.

Our reputation for showing work of the highest quality has attracted the leading international gallerists and collectors, offering the show’s visitors the most important art that world's best galleries can offer.

Exhibiting at Art Basel

Art Basel is strongly rooted in the principle that galleries play an essential role in the development and promotion of visual arts, and offers opportunities for many different types of galleries to participate.
