Art Basel 2023: A Festival of Artistic Brilliance Back in Full Swing

Returning to Its Roots: Art Basel’s Grand Comeback in 2022

After a hiatus due to the pandemic, Art Basel in Basel 2022 has made a triumphant return, offering a sweeping panorama of artistic talent from around the world. Running from June 16-19, this celebration of creativity has brought together 290 galleries from 39 countries.

According to Art Basel’s CEO, the fair has always been the bedrock of the international art scene. In 2022, it has reaffirmed that position, with galleries and artists conveying resilience and innovation through diverse exhibits.

The Highlights: Journeying Through The Best Of Art Basel 2022

Art Basel 2022 presents historic highlights like Joan Mitchell’s abstract painting at David Zwirner and Georg Baselitz’s evocative 1965 canvas of a weary worker. Exciting new works are also displayed, including Cindy Sherman’s 2022 photograph “Untitled #652” at Hauser & Wirth and Bony Ramirez’s 2022 mixed media piece “Strelitzia Nicolai” at Jeffrey Deitch.

Bridging the New and the Historic: Emerging Artists and Art-Historical Projects

Emerging artists have a platform too. Baseera Khan, a queer femme artist of Indian-Afghani descent, has their first solo show outside the US, presenting collaborative photographs. Several art-historical projects are also on view, like a re-staging of Colette Lumiere’s 1977 sleep performance.

Art Basel 2022: A Cultural Oasis Amid Global Uncertainties
