Art Basel maintains close collaboration with our partners, who share the common aspiration of creating a global platform for the exchange of ideas that drive the artworld forward. They share a fundamental commitment to the arts beyond Art Basel. It is this passion for enhancing the experience of art for all which adds to the vibrancy of every Art Basel show.
