Basel: The Olympics of The Art World

The premier international art show of its kind for Modern and contemporary works, Art Basel has been described as the ‘Olympics of the Art World,' Over 300 leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa show the work of more than 4,000 artists, ranging from the great masters of Modern art to the latest generation of emerging stars.

Megan Fox Kelly will be at Basel again this year, advising clients on the purchase of art to expand their collections, and working with them to orchestrate strategic sales of works in this international art marketplace.

Art Basel's individual sectors represent every artistic medium: paintings, sculpture, installations, videos, multiples, prints, photography, and performance. Each day offers a full program of events, including symposiums, films, and artist talks, and Megan Fox Kelly will be there as VIP events begin early Tuesday morning. Further afield, exhibitions and events are offered by cultural institutions in Basel and the surrounding area, creating an exciting, region-wide art week.

Art Basel hosts a series of conversations and talks on a range of subjects, including the collection and exhibition of art, understanding art from a geographical and historical perspective, and timely topics concerning the contemporary art scene. Artists, gallerists, art historians, curators, museum directors, publishers, and collectors participate in panel discussions, book signings, and interviews.

Over 300 top galleries from around the globe will be exhibiting. (Click floor plan to view PDF)
