During the show week, art enthusiasts from all over the world gather in the Swiss cultural capital of Basel to explore the many dimensions of Modern and contemporary art offered by the show's sectors.
"Art Basel is not just a journey through art history, but it also allows one to be confronted with the current debates, aesthetic ricochets and the certainty that, among the decorative masses, in the future there will be enough good timeless art."
"Once inside the fair, visitors were greeted with one of the better editions of the European fair in memory. In particular, the Gianni Jetzer-curated Unlimited sector, dedicated to institution-sized works, offered a thoughtful array of strong and at-times difficult and political works."
"Art with a conscience is on the agenda at the 47th edition of Art Basel."
