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.
Our 2018 edition features 248 premier galleries from 32 countries and
territories. Underlining Art Basel's commitment to the region, half of
the participating galleries once again have exhibition spaces in Asia
and Asia-Pacific. The show provides an in-depth overview of the region’s
diversity through both historical material and cutting-edge works by
established and emerging artists.
The Galleries sector presents art from the world's leading Modern and
contemporary art galleries, displaying paintings, sculptures, drawings,
installations, photographs, film, video and digital artworks from the
20th and 21st centuries.
