The art world’s big annual family gathering was back again this year, with artists and collectors descending upon Switzerland for Art Basel 2018. Running from June 13 to 16, the event drew more than 4,000 artists, who showed off their paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs, prints, videos, performance pieces, and multimedia art.
The event featured works by modern and contemporary masters such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Andy Warhol, and Jeff Koons, as well as pieces by the newest generation. There were plenty of different events in town during the week, including Photo Basel, Paper Positions, the Frame Art Fair, the Rhy Art Fair, the Outsider Art Fair, and I Never Read, Art Book Fair.
