The Best Works Of Design Miami/ Art Basel

The Art Basel 2018 show brings the international art world together, with 290 of the world’s leading galleries showing the works of over 4,000 artists. A full program of artworld talks takes place each day. Exhibitions and events are also offered by cultural institutions in Basel and the surrounding area, creating an exciting, region-wide art week.

Art Basel in Basel kicked off last Monday with the opening of Art Basel Unlimited, the fair’s section for museum-scale installations, located this year on the upper floor of Messe Basel’s Hall 1. Seventy-two presentations have been mounted for this seventh edition of Unlimited, with Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden curator-at-large Gianni Jetzer at the helm.

While Art Basel Unlimited has traditionally focused on large-scale sculpture and installation, there has been a steady rise in the amount of video presented in the section. That shift continues this year, with many of the strongest works playing out on screens in darkened rooms. Take a look at the best works of the event.

Art Basel is the world-leading art fair, with shows in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami connect collectors, galleries, and artists, and are a driving force in supporting the role galleries play in nurturing the careers of artists.
