People don’t trek to Art Basel in Switzerland just for fun. Famed for being the highest-quality art fair in the world, the O.G. Swiss fair is a place where people tend to stay exactly as long as they need to and no longer.

“It’s not a fair like New York or Miami where there’s more going on in the city,” says Malik Al-Mahrouky, a partner at Kurimanzutto gallery, standing in his booth during the opening VIP day. “Here, people come with a very specific mindset to acquire art.” (VIP days are June 11 and 12; the fair is open to the public from June 13 to 16.)

Art Basel 2024 – which takes place at Messe Basel from June 13th to 16th, 2024 – is set to bring over 285 international galleries and artists to present artworks and exhibitions spanning from painting and sculpture to photography and digital works, from early-twentieth-century Modern pioneers to emerging contemporary practitioners. Maike Cruse, Director of Art Basel in Basel, says that there will be 22 galleries joining Art Basel 2024 for the first time, with five of them directly participating in the main sector of the show. Our designboom guide to Art Basel 2024 lists the exhibitions and events not to miss during its course.

For the first time, Stefanie Hessler Director of Swiss Institute (SI) in New York, reconceptualizes the Parcours section, which will unfold along Clarastrasse up to the Middle Bridge. The city’s Messeplatz, curated for the third time by Samuel Leuenberger, will feature a site-specific presentation by conceptual artist Agnes Denes. Unlimited, home to large-scale projects, will be curated for the fourth time by Giovanni Carmine, Director of Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, and host Unlimited Night, which allows visitors to stay beyond opening hours for more performances.

At Art Basel, Collectors Take a Field Trip—Is It All Just a Rural Fantasy?

When I was an undergrad in the early 2000s, taking classes in the pastoral genre was considered to be, how could I put this, kind of a joke.

As a form of literature, art, and music that idealized the lifestyle of the shepherd, herding livestock and bathing in the wisdom of nature, it speaks to a simple, peaceful rural life in direct contrast to the filth and grit of urban cities. We sniffed at the sentimentalism of pastoral ideals, at the romanticized view of the countryside, at the hippie who walked into the class barefoot and with a feather in her hair. We wanted radical Marxism and intersectional feminism, thank you very much! The closest we came to spending serene time in the great outdoors was at raves in the nearby forest—and let’s face it, hugging a tree while on ecstasy doesn’t exactly count in the pastoral tradition.
