ART BASEL IN EUROPE
BY ArtCoWo Press © 6 - 15 - 16
ART BASEL has grown from it's humble beginnings in Europe to an international art fair that has put the standard of art fairs on the chopping block. Everyone these days talks about Basel Miami but few know that it originated in Basel, Switzerland where it continues to this day. The who's who in the art world dash down to Florida for Basel but the galleries with international ties and high end clients do not miss out on the European offering.
The big galleries that go a step further top it off with Tokyo as well. The culmination between these three major hubs of art dealing has made Basel the most well known and respected fair organizers. This year 2016 in Basel, Switzerland from June 16th to the 19th collectors will have their hands full of the world's leading art curators, dealers and emerging and established artists.
From the numbers of around ninety-eight thousand visitor attendance in last years go, Basel projects to break their record this year. The exposition is organized into eight sectors divided into artistic mediums that include paintings, sculpture, installations, film and videos, multiples, prints, photography, and live performance.
Emerging artists are eligible to receive the "Baloise" Art Prize. Baloise Group donates the award-winning artist works to important European art institutions which further enhances these artist's careers. Leading publishers of rare publications, prints, and multiples display the their collaborative efforts with renowned artists in a special section of the fair.
