Located at the bor­der between Switzer­land, France, and Ger­many, Art Basel’s loca­tion is the per­fect rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the vast col­lec­tion of mod­ern and con­tem­po­rary works through­out the show. Unit­ing over 300 gal­leries from North Amer­ica, Latin Amer­ica, Europe, Asia and Africa, under one roof, every artis­tic medium is rep­re­sented at Basel. Eight show sec­tors include a man­i­fold of pieces by estab­lished and emerg­ing artists, curated projects, site-specific expe­ri­en­tial work, and film. In addi­tion to visual art, stim­u­lat­ing talks and panel dis­cus­sions allow vis­i­tors to expand their knowl­edge of artis­tic prac­tice. It serves as an inter­est­ing win­dow into the inter­na­tional art world, and the art mar­ket, which are key com­po­nents to the Basel expe­ri­ence. Neigh­bor­ing the vicin­ity, exhi­bi­tions and events are offered by cul­tural insti­tu­tions to fur­ther cre­ate an excit­ing, region wide art week.
