Art Basel 2015: Your Guide to Basel Fairs and Art Institutions

by The Artslant Team
Art Basel turns 46 this year. There’s little new to say about the original mega-fair, which had 90 exhibitors at its very first 1970 edition, and 281 exhibitors just three years later. With a maturing satellite scene—Liste celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, Design Miami hits double digits, and Volta enters its pre-teens—we know what to expect from much of the week’s establishment lineup. But as the art world grows, so too does the number of fairs and events straddling Basel’s bend in... [more]

The Best of Basel's Free Events

by Teodora Kotseva
It's said that there is “no free lunch,”—but what about some free art events in Basel?  Yes, it's June, and it's time for Art Basel again. It may not as exotic a location as Miami or Hong Kong, but the old European continent offers a deep-rooted history and relatively compact scale of events (at least compared to its Miami mega-offshoot) in the cozy Swiss town at the corner of three nations. Audiences are increasingly interested in attending openings, museum shows, and art fairs and it... [more]

Frieze Week 2015 Fair Guide: the Essentials

by The Artslant Team
Frieze Week 2015 unveils a packed and fairly new line up of fairs and exhibitions. This year three exciting newcomers enter the Frieze fold, while just as many depart from the May satellite roster (gone, relocated, rebranded, or rescheduled are Pulse, Cutlog, The Downtown Fair, and The Outsider Art Fair). Despite fewer fairs than Armory Week (which still feels like yesterday, no?), Frieze Week requires just as much planning and perhaps even more legwork: the main event is a ferry or bus ride up...

Your Guide to Navigating Los Angeles Art Events on This Very Important Weekend

by Natalie Hegert
Living in Los Angeles as an active member of the art scene involves making many choices on a weekly or even nightly basis. In other cities, where art spaces are packed tightly together in close proximity, it’s usually possible to hop around to visit a number of events on a given night, using public transportation or grabbing an Uber, no big deal. Los Angeles, on the other hand, is not one city: it is many. It is unimaginably spread out, and the vast distances between the different art enclaves... [more]

Art Basel on the Side

by Teodora Kotseva
Satellite fairs and art shows seem to be mushrooming around their big brothers. With nearly two-dozen fairs, Miami is definitely the leader, followed by the Armory show, which this year had at least eight side fairs. The month of June though is reserved for the old continent and Art Basel, which is one of the oldest contemporary art fairs and one of the most important when it comes to the concentration of well-established art galleries. Some 4,000 artists will be featured in various sectors,... [more]
