Art Basel's world-leading shows in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami connect collectors, galleries, and artists, and are a driving force in supporting the role galleries play in nurturing the careers of artists. The recently launched Art Basel Cities initiative highlights local art scenes and facilitates international collaborations. The Art Basel publications The Art Market and the Art Market Principles and Best Practices are a commitment to increasing the transparency and accountability of the art market.
Art Basel connects leading art patrons and galleries across countries and continents. Our VIPs are engaged in the international artworld as private collectors, museum directors and curators, art advisors, and internationally known artists. The VIP Team provides this distinguished group with exclusive services to nurture artistic dialogue and create a first class Art Basel experience.
Art Basel is strongly rooted in the principle that galleries play an essential role in the development and promotion of visual arts. Galleries are invited to participate after an extensive review. This ensures that each Art Basel show presents Modern and contemporary artwork of the highest standard.
Art Basel continuously develops new initiatives that reflect its commitment to the broader artworld. These special projects range from ongoing collaboration with our partners to specially-commissioned events taking place during our shows.
Our team is comprised of individuals with a diversity of experience in the artworld and related disciplines, and a desire to bring shows of the highest caliber to a global audience.
