About Art Basel
Art Basel is the most important event in the modern and contemporary art calendar. More than 300 galleries from all continents come together to represent more than 2,500 artists – from early 20th century classics to the most contemporary.
Art Basel presents art from all around the world, and showcases them to a hungry art public. Aside from the main fair, we are also involved with the unique platform Unlimited, which supports artists who want to realize highly original and ambitious art pieces. These can be spectacular or subtle, but they are always significant in their size.
The Art Basel and UBS Global Art Market Report
UBS and Art Basel co-publish the first Art Basel and UBS Global Art Market Report. 'The Art Market 2017' analyzes today's international art market. Written by renowned cultural economist Dr. Clare McAndrew, Founder of Arts Economics, it covers macro-economic trends within the industry, spanning the dealer and auction markets as well as the online sphere.
"As longstanding patrons of the arts, UBS is pleased to collaborate with Art Basel to publish the definitive research on the global art market. Alongside our own art services offerings, institutional patronage, and well-known art collection, the work of Dr. Clare McAndrew corresponds closely with our ongoing commitment to research and analysis of financial markets and economic data for our clients."
