Welcome To Another Year Of Art Basel 2022 

June 16, 2022 Share

Feast your eyes on the extraordinary and get close and personal to the remarkable talent on display. This year Art Basel will take place from June 16- 19 at the Messe Basel, Messeplatz 10, 4058 Basel, Switzerland.

Every year the most significant international art fair is staged in Basel, Switzerland. From excellent art to leading institutions this year, Basel is a maze worth seeing. Located in Basel, a cultural hub in idyllic northwestern Switzerland, the Art Basel 2021 event is back at long. This year, it is running from June 16 – 19.

The event opens this week with over 200 leading galleries and more than 4,000 artists from five continents. Collectors are already flying in from around the world. Since 1970, creators, collectors, and dealers of contemporary art have congregated at Art Basel, the world’s biggest art fair.

Intended to spotlight the top artists of the time and act as a driving force in supporting the role galleries play in nurturing artists’ careers, the annual event attracts art perusers and professionals alike. ‘People are thirsty and eager to experience art physically,’ – Giovanni Carmine.

While exhibiting contemporary work is Art Basel’s first and foremost function, the fair is also known for its events. Lavish parties, live performances, and masterclasses are some of the extra festivities held at each fair. The event changes an entire city’s identity for a week every year.

It is held annually in three host cities—Basel in Switzerland, Miami Beach in Florida, and Hong Kong in China—and gives hundreds of galleries a prestigious platform to present and sell art.

Paintings, sculptures (including outdoor pieces), works on paper, photography, digital art, video art, and installations make up most of the works featured yearly. The gallery spaces are white cubes forming a family of exhibition spaces spanning interconnected open areas. The unlimited white-walled booths are the place where great works come to thrive.

At the foundation of Beyeler, the most visited art museum in Switzerland, exhibitions are spread inside and outside in the gardens. They have close-up displays where each one is dedicated to a female artist from the 1870s until the present day. 

“Art Basel is an essential part of our art-world ecosystem, and I believe it is important to support it in such an unusual, difficult year,” says collector Catherine Petitgas.

In addition to the main event, expect excitement out of the Unlimited section, where large-scale installations and standalone works that literally cannot fit into a regular booth are on display. 

The art fair has also introduced Unlimited Night this year when the fair stays open late. On June 16, 2022, the event closes at 10 pm. So make your way to the best art fair to date to experience this year’s theme: To Grow In Times Of Change, highlighting the rising issues around the Ukraine-Russia war and climate change.
