Quite possibly the most famous art festival in Europe, Art Basel brings hundreds of international galleries and their modern and contemporary works to the public space. You can see some of the world’s best contemporary art at Art Basel; more than 4,000 artists are represented. Art Basel in Switzerland also has outposts in Miami and, more recently, in Hong Kong.
Throughout the year, the festival travels between Basel (June), Hong Kong (March) and Miami Beach (December), coupling 20th and 21st century art with exhibitions and cultural events that are reflective of its host city.
Exhibitions for the works are split between private dates (invitation only) and public dates, the latter of which is usually after the private viewings.
