Art Basel stages the world's premier Modern and contemporary art fairs, staged annually in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong. A driving force in supporting the role that galleries play in nurturing the careers of their artists, Art Basel frequently expands its platforms to include the newest developments in the visual arts.
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.
