Art Basel run on from June 16-19 in Basel, Switzerland, and as you have probably heard, it is huge; enormous; immense. There are 220 galleries in the main halls which is double the number of galleries at the Affordable Art Fair, Battersea. Then there is the Unlimited section of the fair, where 88 projects that “transcend the limitations of a traditional fair booth, including out-sized sculptures and paintings, videos, large-scale installations and live performances” are shown. There are six other sections of the fair including Statements, Feature, Edition, Magazines, Parcour, and Film.  On top of this there are satellite fairs such as Scope, Volta, and Photo Basel, each about the size of Battersea.  So an important part of visiting Art Basel is sorting out what you have time to see and where to go.

After the three-hour train journey from Geneva to Art Basel on Friday, my friends and I decide to spend most of our time in the Unlimited section.  While the galleries section looks much like most other art fairs, the Unlimited section is another beast altogether.  Set in a huge warehouse building and without any gallery staff on hand, the viewing is relaxed and feels like an indoor amusement park of art.  There are many memorable exhibits and I will touch on the ones I like the best…
