Basel is a city of extraordinary initiatives all year round. Switzerland's largest carnival, the world's largest art fair, a renowned ATP tournament, a popular fair with 550 years of history and much more. The fair was the brainchild of gallerists and collectors and has established itself over the years as an important international event not only from the point of view of the art market, but also of artistic research. The echo of Art Basel is today able to reach, thanks to the simultaneous presence in the same place of a wide range of operators in the sector and the ease of information exchange, a considerable catchment area. More than three hundred of the world's most eminent galleries are on display here, selected from over a thousand nominations by an international jury of internationally renowned gallery owners.
