Our Scrollino Summer Tour brought us to Basel this year. A great chance to visit Design Miami/Basel and the Art Basel – the world-leading contemporary art fair.
Famous contemporary art fairs
In June Scrollino® participated in the I Never Read Art Book Fair in Basel. Great timing! You ask why? Because the fair takes place during Art Basel and Design Miami/Basel. The first one is the world-leading art fair and the second is the global forum for design. So for obvious reasons, these are 2 major events we always wanted to visit.
Art Basel 2018
Art Basel is a world-leading contemporary art fair with shows in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami. We had the chance to visit the famous Art Basel this year and to experience a large variety of contemporary art exhibitions. To meet with gallerists and curators in the collector’s lounge was fun as well.
In 1970, three Basel gallerists put their passion and determination behind an ambitious vision to form an international art fair. Now, Art Basel stages the premier international art shows, providing platforms for galleries and artists from around the world. Art Basel continuously develops new initiatives that reflect its commitment to the broader artworld.
June 12–17, 2018
Design Miami/Basel was another exciting event taking place on the same week in June. From the large selection of design shows we have most appreciated the Friedman Benda gallery (New York) that showcased the Watercolour collection (on the photo) designed by Nendo.
Design Miami/ is the global forum for design. Each fair brings together the most influential designers, gallerists, collectors, curators and design critics from around the world in celebration of design culture. Taking place alongside the Art Basel fairs in Miami, USA in December and Basel, Switzerland in June, Design Miami/ has become the premier venue for exhibiting, collecting, discussing and creating collectible design.
