Art dealers are gathering up for the next edition of ART BASEL (June 18-21). After the New York’s auction season, this is the place to go.
Basel is considered the mecca of art fairs and it will gather the most important art galleries in the world. The city turns to a vibrant place where everything happens and where the energy is great!
Basel boasts works by distinguished architects like Tadao Ando, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Renzo Piano, and SANAA. Koch is also formerly managing director at Basel’s Beyeler Foundation.
Featuring nearly 300 galleries hailing from cities as far-flung as Tel Aviv, São Paulo, and Beijing, Art Basel 2015 is in its 46th year.
You will see the latest art exhibitions that were in the best museums around the world. This Art Basel edition promises to be a hit.
Blum & Poe Gallery will offer a canvas by Jim Shaw, who’s having a big year, with his largest U.S. museum solo to date, currently at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (see Jim Shaw’s Mass MoCA Extravaganza Takes on Superman, Father Figures, and Norman Rockwell), and a retrospective at New York’s New Museum on tap this fall.

Mary Weatherford’s paintings with affixed strips of glowing neon caught people’s eye at the exhibition “The Forever Now: Contemporary Painting in an Atemporal World,” at New York’s Museum of Modern Art in December 2014, and Los Angeles’ David Kordansky Gallery hopes to build on that momentum with a stormy black canvas with blue and red vertical neon strips.
William Kentridge’s show “The Refusal of Time” at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art last year turned a lot of heads; the New York Times’ Holland Cotter called it “audience pleasing in the best, challenging sense.” In Basel, New York/Paris/London dealer Marian Goodman offers sculptures and works on paper by the South African artist. She’s known for dramatic presentations at fairs, having turned over a Frieze New York booth to a performance by Tino Sehgal. She’ll also offer work from her international roster, including Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Lawrence Weiner, and Yang Fudong.
Art Basel 2015 will be full of art and also full of artists that will blow your mind with their creations.
