Once again, a very strong contingent of galleries from Europe will be joined by exhibitors from across the globe. 17 galleries will participate for the first time, including three new exhibitors from the Asia Pacific region –Antenna Space, Hopkinson Mossman and Magician Space– and one from Africa, Cairo's Gypsum Gallery.

The main sector of the show, “Galleries”, will feature 226 exhibitors presenting the highest quality of painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography, video and editioned works. This year’s strong list of returning participants is joined by 10 galleries exhibiting in the sector for the first time, having previously participated in the show's project based sectors, Feature and Statements. Dedicated to prints and limited-editioned works, the “Edition” sector will bring together 15 leading specialists in the field.

The Feature sector this year presents 32 galleries with precise curatorial projects, showing both historical and contemporary work. This year’s sector welcomes seven galleries new to the show: The Box, Leila Heller Gallery, Jenkins Johnson Gallery, Kalfayan Galleries, P420, Parrasch Heijnen Gallery and Deborah Schamoni. Highlights will include rare Max Beckmann (1884-1950) prints from the 1910s and 1920s at Jörg Maaß Kunsthandel.

Every year, the work of emerging artists and young galleries can be discovered through solo presentations in the “Statements” sector. 18 galleries will take part in Statements this year with eight newcomers exhibiting for the first time at the Basel show.
