Art Basel, the art fair which is more than just a marketplace, opens up today!

Art Basel is one of the most prestigious and well-known contemporary art fairs in the world. It takes place annually in three major cities: Basel, Miami Beach (USA), and Hong Kong. Each location features a diverse array of galleries showcasing contemporary and modern art, attracting collectors, curators, and art enthusiasts from around the globe.

Founded in 1970 by gallerists Trudl Bruckner, Balz Hilt, and Ernst Beyeler, the fair has grown to become one of the most influential platforms for contemporary and modern art.

The inaugural edition featured 90 galleries and attracted around 16,000 visitors. It quickly established itself as a leading event in the art world, distinguished by its high-quality presentations and a broad range of art forms, including painting, sculpture, photography, and installations. The success of the fair in Basel laid the foundation for its expansion into other global art markets.

Art Basel is a cultural phenomenon and has significantly influenced the global art market by setting high standards for presentation and curation. It has helped launch the careers of many artists and has brought international attention to various art movements and trends. The fairs also attract a diverse audience, from high-profile collectors and museum directors to art enthusiasts and the general public, contributing to a broader appreciation and understanding of contemporary art.
