The renowned international art fair may have extended to Miami and Hong Kong, but its Swiss headquarters remain a landmark event in modern and contemporary arts. Outstanding quality attracts private collectors and museum groups from around the world, resulting in exceptionally strong sales for galleries. The show attracted a record attendance of 92,000 over the six show days – 6,000 more than last year.
What also makes Art Basel so special is the range of one-off curated projects which take place away from the shop floor. Innovative and constantly evolving, these additional elements provide a depth and richness of artistic experience that remains unparalleled in any other art fair.
Below is a small selection of some of the best art exhibitions and installations which could be found at Art Basel 2014.
