Art Basel turns 40

June 9, 2009

If you are at all enamored with the world of contemporary art, then you’ve no doubt heard of Art Basel, the leading exhibition for of its kind. Held in Basel, Switzerland each year, the event features almost 300 galleries, 2,500 individual artists and a wide range of styles from the founders of Modern art to emerging stars.

It starts tomorrow and runs through the 14th, but if you can’t make it all the way to Switzerland, the show offers a really cool online catalog where you can check out what will be on exhibit.

Here’s the info for the artwork above, which will be on display in Hall 2.1:
