Art Basel: Year 44
In celebration of Art Basel’s 44th year—the first to include three exhibitions on three continents—JRP | Ringier joins Art Basel in publishing a new book documenting the dynamic experience of its Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong fairs.
Art Basel | Year 44, designed by Gavillet & Rust (Geneva), has an A-to-Z format that maps the world of Art Basel with a comprehensive look at the shows of 2013. This elegant, hardcover publication offers a compilation of portfolios, interviews, and essays on contemporary art, and lists all exhibitors participating in the three exhibitions.
The book depicts works from the different shows’ sectors, highlights events and talks, and gives art world experts, curators, and collectors a platform for sharing their expertise, providing an immersive art experience for the reader.
An extensive survey, a path to discovery, an indispensable piece of memorabilia—the first edition of the Art Basel | Year 44 will no doubt be a favorite addition to the library of essential art books for the expanding global art world community.
Edited by Lionel Bovier, Annette Schönholzer, and Marc Spiegler. Texts by Harry Bellet, Florence Derieux, Gianni Jetzer, Arto Lindsay, Massimo Minini, Elaine Ng, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Mickalene Thomas, Philip Ursprung, Pauline J. Yao, et al.
