Preview Art Basel 43

  • Art Basel 43 in Basel, Switzerland—where most everyone in the art world happens to be at the moment—has gotten off to a swift start. There have been notable sales by artists Philip Guston, Rosemarie Trockel, Bruce Nauman, Mickalene Thomas and many more, as well as details that inspire an eyebrow lift or two. (Gagosian’s contribution makes up 12.5% of Art Basel in value!) But there’s plenty more work to “ooh” and “ahh” over in the days to come. Here’s a brief preview to give you a taste of what you’re missing.
