World-leading shows in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami
Art Basel is a for-profit, privately owned and managed international art fair staged annually in Basel, Switzerland; Miami Beach, Florida; and Hong Kong, selling established and emerging artists. The commercial fairs also offer parallel programming produced in collaboration with the host city’s local institutions. While Art Basel provides a platform for galleries to show and sell their work to buyers, it also attracts a large international audience of art spectators and students.
Art Basel's world-leading shows in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami connect collectors, galleries, and artists, and are a driving force in supporting the role galleries play in nurturing the careers of artists. The recently launched Art Basel Cities initiative highlights local art scenes and facilitates international collaborations. The Art Basel publications The Art Market and the Art Market Principles and Best Practices are a commitment to increasing the transparency and accountability of the art market.
