Following the success of its launch last year, Art Basel’s official annual publication, "Art Basel | Year 45" captures and documents the 2014 shows in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong, and goes beyond them, featuring interviews, essays on contemporary art, and personal highlights from artists, curators, collectors, and museum directors.
Designed by Gavillet & Rust (Geneva), the publication has an A-to-Z format that maps the world of Art Basel alongside profiles spotlighting each of the 528 galleries participating across the three shows in 2014. It features works from all sectors of the different shows, highlights events and talks, offering vivid and varied perspectives on the global artworld as seen through the eyes of Art Basel. Giving art world experts, curators, and collectors a platform for sharing their expertise, the publication provides an insightful and immersive art experience for the reader.
