Our show's sectors allow visitors to explore the many dimensions of Modern and contemporary art including museum-caliber paintings, sculptures and classical photography, as well as works of an outsized scale, precisely curated projects, and site-specific artworks and interventions woven throughout the historical districts of Basel.


The Feature sector emphasizes precisely curated projects that may include solo presentations by an individual artist, or juxtapositions and thematic exhibits from artists representing a range of cultures, generations, and artistic approaches.

Highlights of the 2015 edition

Feature will present 30 galleries from 13 countries. Highlights include a presentation by Luxembourg & Dayan (New York, London) of works by Michelangelo Pistoletto, ‘La Gabbia’ and ‘Mobili Capovolti'. James Cohan Gallery (New York, Shanghai) will show a selection of post-war Avant Garde iconic works by John Cage, and Borzo Gallery (Amsterdam) will present a rare and previously unseen collection by Constant, drawn from the artist's 'New Babylon' series of work based on his vision of a utopian anti-capitalist city. For a more classical sight, Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois (Paris) will show a series of important art historical pieces from Nouveau Réalisme and the French Avant Gardes of the 1960s, including works by François Dufrêne, Daniel Spoerri, Jacques Villeglé, Jean Tinguely, Martial Raysse, Alain Jacquet, Niki de Saint Phalle, Yves Klein and Arman.
