Lynx x Art Basel. Contemporary Lynx is a proud media partners of the Art Basel 2024 Art Fair.

Contemporary Lynx is a proud media partners of the Art Basel Art Fair. The art fair will take place from 13–16 June in Messe Basel.

Art Basel fair brings the international artworld together. It features over 200 leading galleries and more than 4,000 artists from five continents. Many high-quality exhibitions take place concurrently in and around Basel, creating a region-wide art week.

The 2024 edition of Art Basel in Basel will feature 285 of the world’s leading galleries, showcasing the highest quality of works across all media, including painting, sculpture, photography, and digital artworks. 22 first-time participants will join a robust lineup of European exhibitors and returning galleries from around the globe.

In addition to remarkable presentations in its Galleries, Feature, Statements, and Edition sectors, around 70 large-scale installations and performances will be on view in the show’s Unlimited sector, while the Kabinett sector will return for the second time to Art Basel’s Swiss edition to spotlight distinct, curated exhibitions within the main booths of exhibitors.

This year’s show will also present an expanded city-wide program, which will include Agnes Denes’ seminal land art work Honouring Wheatfield – A Confrontation (2024) on the Messeplatz, curated by Samuel Leuenberger. The reconceptualized Parcours sector, curated for the first time by Stefanie Hessler, will unfold along Clarastrasse up to the Middle Bridge, where Art Basel will activate the Merian to provide audiences with a stimulating venue for around-the-clock artistic events and showcases. Free to the public, Art Basel’s Conversations series, curated for the first time by Kimberly Bradley, will focus on ways to build and shape the art world’s future, while the Film program, curated by Filipa Ramos, will showcase a unique lineup of surveys, feature films, and a special program for young audiences from age four onwards.

Maike Cruse, Director of Art Basel in Basel, said: ‘I am particularly excited about this year’s expanded city-wide program as a testament to Basel’s cultural pulse. The Messeplatz project, featuring Agnes Denes’ transformative installation Honouring Wheatfield – A Confrontation (2024), redefines the dialogue between environment, land art, and the value of things. Our Parcours sector transforms the Clarastrasse into an exhibition exploring the topics of circulation and transformation. And the Merian will not only showcase Petrit Halilaj’s installation on the façade but will also extend Art Basel’s activation into the evening and night. Join us to celebrate community and the limitless possibilities of artistic expression along the Rhine.’


Art Basel’s unique sector for large-scale projects, Unlimited provides exhibitors the opportunity to present monumental installations, colossal sculptures, boundless wall paintings, comprehensive photo series, and expansive video projections. Unlimited will be curated for the fourth time by Giovanni Carmine, Director of Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen.
