| Year 50

Year 50

Within its 656 pages, Art Basel | Year 50 offers readers a retrospective look at the fair's first 50 years. It also features vivid portraits of the galleries and people that made our 2019 shows in Basel, Hong Kong, and Miami Beach so vibrant.

Art Basel | Year 50 includes myriad contributions by long-standing Art Basel participants, visitors, and supporters, as well as an extensive polyphonic timeline that provides textual and visual insights into the fair’s five decades and key editions, mapping and acknowledging its dynamic history and the way it has accompanied the expansion and development of the artworld. The book has an A-to-Z format that maps the world of Art Basel with a comprehensive look at the Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong shows, as well as Art Basel Cities: Buenos Aires, featuring interviews, essays, and personal highlights from artists, curators, collectors, museum directors and other luminaries from the international artworld.

The publication can be purchased at selected art bookstores across Europe, the United States, and Asia.
