Art Basel Names 289 Exhibitors for Marquee Swiss Fair This June
February 24, 2022 - Maximiliano Duron For Art News
One major change to the selection for galleries, first instituted for Art Basel’s Miami Beach fair last December, is that it relaxed “the minimum number of exhibitions a gallery must hold per year, the need to have a permanent exhibition space, and the number of years the gallery must have been in operation,” according to a press release. The move was in part meant to diversify the exhibitor list.
Another change this year comes in the fair’s Unlimited section, which focuses on large-scale artworks. That section opens the day before the main fair as a preview. For this edition, the section, organized by Giovanni Carmine, the director of the Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen in Switzerland, will now also include a dedicated “Unlimited Night” on Thursday, June 16. The fair will also continue to host an online viewing room in tandem with the physical fair.
