Our breakthrough 2016 edition – which placed the Hong Kong show squarely in the center of Asia’s international art scene – offered a premier platform for showing works from across the globe. Underlining its commitment to the region, half of the participating galleries once again had exhibition spaces in Asia and Asia-Pacific. The show provided an in-depth overview of the region’s diversity through both historical material and cutting-edge works by established and emerging artists.


Galleries
The Galleries sector presents art from 190 of the world's leading Modern and contemporary art galleries, displaying paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, film, video and digital artworks from the 20th and 21st centuries.

Magazines
Art publications from around the world display their magazines in single-magazine stands, or on the collective booth. Editors and publishers often attend the show and many magazines contribute presentations to Salon, our afternoon series of lectures and discussions by prominent members of the artworld.

Talks
Art Basel's stimulating program of Conversations and Salon talks allow audiences to deepen their knowledge of artistic practice, the international artworld, and the art market.
The daily Conversations series offers the audience access to the thinking of important artworld players –artists, curators, critics and collectors – who offer their unique perspectives on producing, collecting and exhibiting art.
Salon is an open platform for dozens of short, often informal presentations, such as artist talks, panels, lectures and performances with a range of speakers representing many different aspects of the artworld.
Conversations & Salon is programmed by Stephanie Bailey.
