BASEL.- The 38th edition of Art Basel, the international art show, takes place in the city of Basel (Switzerland) from June 13 through 17, 2007. The over 300 leading galleries selected by the Art Basel Committee come from all continents and will be showing works by over 2,000 artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Over 20 galleries will be making their first appearance at the international art show. The «Art Statements» and «Art Premiere» sectors have been expanded. Further exhibition platforms feature editions, cultural institutions and magazines, art projects in urban spaces, and film work.

The «Art Unlimited» hall offers artists and galleries a platform for showing large-scale works such as can be seen and purchased at no other art fair. There will also be a special presentation of artist records. At «Art Basel Conversations» interested visitors can meet leading exponents of the international art world. For the first time, official cooperation has been established between Art Basel, the Venice Biennale, the documenta in Kassel, and Skulpturenprojekte Münster.

The 38th edition of Art Basel, the international art show, runs from June 13 through 17, 2007. The show opens on June 12 with a Vernissage for invited guests. «Professional Day», aimed at museum professionals, dealers, and collectors, will be held on Friday, June 15. Over 55,000 art collectors, gallerists, artists, curators, and art lovers from all over the world are expected.

Art Basel is regarded as the most important annual reunion of the art world and is indisputably the world’s biggest and most important fair for modern and contemporary art. Art Basel’s excellent reputation is founded both on the high quality and unique diversity of the exhibited works and on the international audience attracted by the event. Taking place during the same period as the Venice Biennale, the documenta in Kassel, and Skulpturenprojekte in Münster, Art Basel is ideally positioned between the openings of these three exhibitions. This year, for the first time, these four majors events will be engaging in official cooperation.
