June 16-June 19
Art Basel is a art show that will bring together 289 leading galleries. Nineteen galleries will exhibit for the first time, from 40 different countries. This year’s event promises its ‘broadest-ever’ range of artists and a diverse showcase of works across all types of media. The event will be held at the Messe Basel exhibition center. Art Basel’s extensive program is anchored by its main Galleries sector. Meanwhile, special sectors of the 2022 event include Unlimited, Parcours, Film, and Conversations.
Unlimited showcases expansive installations, monumental sculptures, vast wall paintings, extensive photographic series, and video projections that transcend the traditional art fair stand. Parcours is Art Basel’s sector for site-specific installations and performances across the city and this year it returns under the theme ‘How to Grow in Times of Change’. Art Basel will host Parcours Night, an evening of extended opening hours and live performances across the city center on Saturday, June 18, allowing visitors to enjoy the Parcours installations after hours.
