LISTE Art Fair Basel
What began as an initiative by young gallerists in 1996, developed into one of the most important fairs for contemporary young art in the world. For 18 years, the fair has been making relevant contributions to the promotion of young artists and galleries. The intentionally low number of 66 galleries and the high level of sophistication of those galleries are reasons for LISTE’s extraordinary success, international reputation and drawing power.
June 11 to 16, 2013
The jury – composed of curators – selected the 66 most promising galleries from over 300 applicants. 48 galleries participated in 2012, 10 are returning after successful appearances at Statements or Feature at Art Basel, and 8 were selected from the remaining 250 applicants and will make their LISTE debut. The most interesting galleries of the youngest and middle generation will be represented at LISTE and bring to Basel a truly inspiring high-class selection of contemporary art.
Our institutional special guests are Kunsthaus CentrePasquArt, Biel, the House of Electronic Arts, Basel, and Kaskadenkondensator, Basel. The Nationale Suisse Art Prize is celebrating its 10-year anniversary at LISTE and, for the 9th time, the Performance Project will be presenting a daily-changing program of important international performers.
