With fairs in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong, Art Basel stages the world's premier art shows for modern and contemporary works. Defined by its host city and region, each show is unique. This is reflected in the participating galleries, artworks presented, and the content of parallel programming produced in collaboration with local institutions for each edition.
As partner of Art Basel since 2006, AXA ART works with the fair to raise collectors’ awareness of the fragility of art works and of the straightforward steps they can take to conserve them.
