Art Parcours
The Art Parcours sector at Art Basel presents site-specific artworks and performances in the historical quarters of Basel. In its third year, the 2012 edition of Art Parcours has moved to the St. Johann neighborhood of Basel. From Wednesday, June 13 to Sunday, June 17 thirteen locations will be transformed by renowned international artists, including Pawel Althamer, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Rodney Graham, Aleksandra Mir, Maria Nordman, Pedro Reyes and Dieter Roth.

Art Unlimited
The sector will feature 62 projects by artists representing a cross-section of the leading figures from several generations of today’s international art scene. Many pieces have been created especially for Art Unlimited and are marked both by their ambition and the relative youth of the artists creating them. The new curation will also be expressed in a very new design and architecture for the sector.

Art Salon
Taking place in the Hall 1 auditorium, the Art Salon program, curated by Maike Cruse, focuses on the most current artworld themes and spotlights the artists, curators, collectors, and experts influencing the visual arts at this moment and in the future.
