Special sectors will feature presentations of new art works, curated exhibittions, video and sound art lounges, a performance program, and art in public spaces. 22 young galleries will present cutting-edge projects in converted shipping containers on the beach. There will also be a new Guest Lounge offering a concentrated range of information and services to visitors. «Art Salon», the new encounter point being established in the Guest Lounge this year, will give leading figures from the international art scene an opportunity to present their forthcoming projects (biennials, foundations, book launches).

Following its success last year, the special «Art Nova» sector is being extended. «Art Basel Conversations» will feature prominent art-world personalities. Visitors can also look forward to an exciting program of special exhibitions, visits to private art collections, and crossover events linking art and music (Peaches), film (Dennis Hopper), and design.
