We mostly write about Art Basel Miami Beach (not travelling with great frequency to Switzerland is part of the reason for this). But, Art Basel’s 44th edition in Basel, Switzerland takes place from June 13 through June 16, 2013. This year’s galleries include 304 presenting work from the Modern period of the 20th century to contemporary artists.
Galleries from 39 countries/territories from five continents will participate.
The show has a new space this year within the extension of Hall 1. The extension was designed by Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron. It is directly on the Messeplatz. The existing part of Hall 1 will be given to Unlimited, the Statemetns and magazine sections.
If you will be anywhere near and are a serious collector—or have a serious interest in art, attendance is pretty close to mandatory.

For the non-Chicago resident it must have been disconcerting walking through Navy Pier (essentially a cheesy tourist trap) to get to the first year of Expo Chicago. But a funny thing happens about 3/4 of the way; you run into the permanent exhibit of stained glass housed at the pier. I dare you to not stop and look. It really sets a mood appropriate to a fine art show.
Add to that an impressive group of galleries and artists and a day’s worth of looking, and hopefully purchasing, art should follow. Expo Chicago featured galleries from around the world, mostly displaying works by established artists. There was less outsider art and street art than was usually on display at Expo Chicago's predecessor in Chicago (the now defunct Art Chicago/Next).
The show included several large installation pieces—works in themselves or “props” for performance pieces—throughout. Some of these are pictured here.
Over the next few days we will post pieces on the galleries from Expo Chicago as well as more on Expo Chicago itself. Stay tuned.
Expo Chicago, which starts this week, is the new premiere art event in the city. I say that, of course, without having gone but it sure looks good on paper! The show runs from September 20 to the 23 in Festival Hall at Navy Pier.
After Art Chicago went the way of the dodo it seemed high art had abandoned the city of broad shoulders but Expo Chicago stepped in. In the Fall instead of Spring, the festival is close in its timing to other large Chicago art happenings which is one of those things that, over time could make Chicago more of an art destination. The100 or so galleries participating in the festival are from all over the world and are galleries we write about with some frequency (Cernuda Arte, Coral Gables, Florida, John Berggruen Gallery, San Francisco, Tandem Press, Madison, Wisconsin and Paul Thiebaud, San Francisco)
The focus of this festival is modern art and design. If you want more information head to www.expochicago.com. There will be coverage here of the event.
