Art Basel 2013
The international art-loving jet set flocked to Switzerland this week for Art Basel. With more than US$2 billion worth of art to choose from, it certainly is the biggest Contemporary art fair worldwide.
In the largest sector of the fair, 230 of the world’s leading galleries are displaying high-caliber Modern and Contemporary pieces, as many art dealers have made an effort to hold back their best pieces for Art Basel.
For those interested in artists on the cutting-edge of the emerging art scene, the Statements sector is featuring solo projects by emerging artists.
Art Basel, the art world’s summer destination since 1970, celebrated its VIP opening yesterday.
The largest sector of the fair will showcase 230 of the world’s leading galleries displaying high-caliber Modern and Contemporary pieces. However, for those of you looking for artists on the cutting-edge of the emerging art scene, be sure to check out the Statements sector, which will feature solo projects by young artists.

Politically Engaged Art At Basel
Drawing well-suited dealers and collectors from all corners of the globe since 1970, Art Basel is “just as much a meeting place as a market place,” as co-director Marc Spiegler likes to put it.
And while center stage is occupied by the big, expensive gestures made by big, rich artists, plenty of politically-engaged, socially-grounded artworks are still to be found in the city.
While in Basel, we took time to stop by Volta8 fair, Basel’s cutting edge art fair for new and emerging art.
