Art Basel closed last weekend. The Messeplatz is clear, the NetJets are gone, and our media feeds are back to normal. It’s time to recap the 46th edition of the world’s largest annual art event.
Art Basel Hong Kong concluded its third edition this week with impressive sales reports. The fair was launched in 2013 as a satellite to Art Basel, the 45-year old fair in Switzerland that is the most significant annual event in the contemporary art world, and Art Basel in Miami Beach, which was launched in 2002.
