  • 22 galleries from across Europe, Asia, and the Americas will join the show for the first time.
  • This will be the first edition led by Maike Cruse, who took on the position of Director, Art Basel in Basel in July 2023.
  • The show’s Parcours sector will be curated for the first time by Stefanie Hessler, Director of New York’s Swiss Institute (SI), and evolve into a public art exhibition unfolding in close vicinity to Messe Basel on Clarastrasse.
  • Art Basel will expand its presence within the city by activating the Hotel Merian as a continuous, around-the-clock venue for artistic events and showcases, while Basel’s world-class cultural institutions will stage an exciting program of exhibitions and events throughout the week.
  • Art Basel, whose Global Lead Partner is UBS, will take place at Messe Basel from June 13 to 16, 2024, with Preview Days on June 11 and 12.

For its 2024 edition in Basel, Art Basel will bring together 287 leading international galleries to present artworks of the highest quality across all media – from painting and sculpture to photography and digital works – by artists ranging from early-twentieth-century Modern pioneers to emerging contemporary practitioners. Art Basel in Basel will once again reaffirm its unparallelled position as a platform for discovery and encounters that drive the art world.

The outstanding diversity of artistic perspectives on view at the fair will be complemented by lively events and activities spanning the entire city and its prominent cultural institutions, highlighting Basel’s unique appeal, and underscoring the significant impact of Art Basel on its hometown.

Maike Cruse, Director of Art Basel in Basel, said: ‘I am looking forward to welcoming the global art community to Basel come June for the upcoming edition of our show. With the addition of 22 new participants, it promises to be exceptionally dynamic and filled with exciting discoveries. I am thrilled about the expansion of the city-wide program, which now includes the public art sector Parcours on Clarastrasse newly curated by Stefanie Hessler. Additionally, I eagerly anticipate our project at Hotel Merian, which will contribute to the continued growth of Art Basel’s presence in the city through a fresh approach.’

Expanded City-Wide Programming
Art Basel’s public sector Parcours will be curated for the first time by Stefanie Hessler, Director of Swiss Institute (SI) in New York, succeeding Samuel Leuenberger, who successfully managed and expanded the sector over the past eight years. Hessler aims to recontextualize Parcours as a curated exhibition that will meander through empty storefronts, a hotel, operational shops, and other urban spaces on Basel’s Clarastrasse, which connects the fairgrounds to the Rhine. Through ambitious projects, many of which will be site-specific and newly created, the sector will explore ideas of transformation and circulation within the realms of trade and globalization, the flow of information, and the varied climates and weathers spanning geographies and generations.

In addition, Art Basel will expand its presence within the city by activating the Hotel Merian as a continuous, around-the-clock venue for artistic events and showcases. The Film sector, curated by writer and curator Filipa Ramos, will return with a compelling selection of moving image works, presented throughout the show week at Basel’s Stadtkino. Free to the public and hosted on Art Basel’s fair ground, the renowned Conversations program will be for the first time curated by Berlin-based writer, editor, and educator Kimberly Bradley.

More details on the activation of Hotel Merian and the presentations of Art Basel’s special sectors such as Messeplatz, Unlimited, Parcours, Kabinett, Conversations, and Film will be released in the coming months.

The fair’s main sector will feature 245 of the world’s leading galleries, presenting painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography, video, digital art, and editioned works of the highest quality. Seven galleries that previously exhibited in Feature or Statements will graduate into the main sector of the fair, showcasing the full range of their program, while the sector welcomes five first-time exhibitors.
