Have been attending since 2000. Best art fair in the world. My favorite section is Art Unlimited which shows large scale works.

Art Basel is the leading art exhibition, and the city is packed during 5 days. For everyone who does not have the cash to actually buy there, it is like a pop-up museum, with amazing pieces, especially in the Art Unlimited section of the exhibition.

Art Basel is an eclectic gathering of art houses and installations by famous artists all under one roof. What to say? I saw some of the C 20th icons I did not expect to see. Visit and be your own judge.
