Basel will once more become the central meeting place of the international art world with the 49th staging of Art Basel from the 14th to the 17th of June 2018.
Art Basel, the world's most important art fair, is an annual meeting point for the international art world. About 300 internationally renowned and influential galleries from around the world will be showing works of art that span eleven decades, from the classic modernism of the early 20th Century to contemporary art. Eight different formats promise a varied programme and provide in-depth insights into the art scene of today.
Three ancillary fairs, the "Scope", the "Liste" and the "Rhy Art Fair", will be held at the same time in Basel, which offer young, emerging artists and galleries in particular, an exciting platform to showcase their work.
The museums in and around Basel offer the art-loving audience special delicacies and programmes during these art-days. Numerous additional events in the city centre bolster the unique atmosphere of this week in June.
