Art Basel’s Online Viewing Rooms Return with Brand New Works

Art Basel will debut the latest edition of its Online Viewing Rooms (OVR) this week with an invite-only preview September 23-25, and open to the public on September 25-26. Featuring 100 exhibitors and around 600 artworks, “OVR:2020” will highlight in its entirety works that have been created this year.

“The viewing rooms that comprise Art Basel’s ‘OVR:2020’ represent an incredible force and variety of artistic perspectives, which together offer our audiences across the globe the opportunity to experience artists’ most recent works—both conveying and contending with the lived experiences of our time,” said Marc Spiegler, Art Basel’s Global Director.
