Ever since 1970, Art Basel‘s objective was to connect all of the world’s top galleries and their representatives. They’ve done so with fairs in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami Beach ranking as premier shows of their kind, presenting 20th and 21st century art.

The result is phenomenal, their shows have attracted leading international galleries and collectors, offering visitors high-quality work from 4,000 artists, ranging from modern great masters to current emerging stars.┬áThe show will take place at Messe Basel, which is Switzerland’s biggest and most important exhibition site, featuring a new hall designed by the leading international architects Herzog and de Meuron of Basel.

Over four days, the show is set to attract at least 100,000 people with full program of talks each day during the show as well as exhibitions and events presented by cultural institutions from Basel. 286 of the world’s leading Modern and contemporary art galleries will display premier paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, prints, photographs, film, video and digital art by over 4,000 artists.
