Known as the ‘Olympics of the Art World’, Art Basel Switzerland presents its 2015 premiere international art show June 18–21. The program will be held in Basel, one of Europe’s most cultural cities nestled between the borders of Switzerland, France, and Germany.
This year’s tenth installment of the modern and contemporary art show hosts up to 300 leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia. Art Basel has selected more than 4,000 artists ranging from well-known masters such as Rirkrit Tiravanija, whose exhibit will inaugurate the show, Richard Serra, who will display his monumental sculpture ‘Intersection’ along with Jean Tinguely and his collection of whimsical foundations (plus many more).
Art Basel‘s four-day program includes detailed “morning conversations”, which offer dynamic dialogue between prominent members of the international art world. Conversations will take place each morning on topics such as building new art institutions, recent innovations and shows, and non-profits. The afternoons will be reserved for open platforms or ‘Salons’, where short presentations from the artists and selected academics will display their expertise in each sectors domain. From the displays What’s Love Got To Do With It: on romance and collaboration in contemporary art to Remembering Louise Bourgeois, coverage of every degree of artistic representation will take place – including the highest-quality paintings, sculptures, photography, video, performance and installations.
This noteworthy opportunity presents itself for the tens of thousands of visitors who come to collect, enthuse or curate each year. Art Basel continues to works with a supportive team of corporate partners to build an international meeting place for the art world.
