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. Art Basel plays a vital role in helping galleries to nurture the careers of their artists. In addition to ambitious stands featuring leading galleries from around the world, each show's exhibition sectors spotlight the latest developments in the visual arts, offering visitors new ideas, new inspiration and new contacts in the art world. 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.
Deloitte Art & Finance International Conferences Unprecedented development over the past few years has resulted in the ‘financialization’ of the art market.
