Art Basel's sister event last December in Miami left us excited for the fairs to come. Most recently, we heard the news that the fair would be taking place in Hong Kong for the first time. Now we know that the 44th edition in Basel, Switzerland, will run from June 13 to June 16. For this year's event, 304 groundbreaking international galleries will display 11 decades worth of work, from the Modern period of the early 20th century to the contemporary moment. The works will come from all over the world, representing 39 countries and territories spanning five continents.
Although the fair is mostly comprised of galleries from Europe, this year will see the largest-ever number of exhibitors with spaces in the Asia-Pacific region at the show. With influence from the fair's new host, we're sure this year will once again solidify it as the Olympics of the art world. Find a full gallery list here.
