June 25, 2022



Returning from a hiatus prompted by the coronavirus pandemic, the recently concluded 2022 edition of Art Basel, a premier Modern and contemporary art fair, featured 289 leading international galleries. On 16-19 June 2022, the art fair showcased exceptional artworks from 19 first-time participants, plus over 90 large-scale pieces including a spacious installation titled "Out of Sight" by the late American conceptual aritst, Lawrence Weiner.

Art Basel 2022 highlights its collaboration with the City of Basel, leading cultural institutions in the city, and various local institutions on a public art project in support of Ukraine. The show presented Ukrainian artist Boris Mikhailov’s latest photographic series, 'Temptation of Death’. It also backed the performance of Russian punk collective Pussy Riot and evenly donated a total of CHF 110,000 to three humanitarian aid organizations.

The next Art Basel show will roll on 20-23 October 2022 in Paris.
