Welcome to Art Basel

Since 1970, Art Basel’s goal has been to connect the world's premier galleries and their patrons, as well as serving a meeting point for the international artworld. 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 high quality work has attracted leading international galleries and collectors, offering visitors the most important art from around the world.
