The 48th Edition of Art Basel: What to Expect

By Whitewall

June 11, 2017

The 48th edition of Art Basel takes place June 15-18. With lead partner UBS, the fair will include presentations from 291 international galleries from 35 countries and six continents. Presenting work from the early 20th century to today, 17 galleries will be participating for the first time, including Antenna Space, Hopkinson Mossman, Magician Space, Gypsum Gallery, Canada, and Di Donna. The Edition sector will feature 15 specialists, including Brooke Alexander, Alan Cristea Gallery, Gemini G.E.L. LLC, Lelong Editions, Paragon, and others. The Feature sector brings seven new galleries to the fair including The Box, Leila Keller Gallery, P420, and more. There, keep your eye out for works by Nam June Paik, Gordon Parks, Robert Ryman, Robert Frank, and Liz Magor.

The solo-focused Statements sector brings together 18 international galleries, presenting work by artists like Guan Xiao, Sam Anderson, Sam Pulitzer, and Amy Lien. This edition’s anticipated Unlimited exhibition is curated by Gianni Jetzer, curator-at-Large at the Hirshhorn Museum, and is made up of a range of large-scale works, installations, performances, and video. The site-specific series Parcours is curated again this year by Samuel Leuenberger, and Art Basel’s Film program was put together by Maxa Zoller.
