Art Basel's official annual publication captures and documents the exhibitions in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong, and goes beyond them, featuring interviews, portfolios, essays about contemporary art, and personal highlights from artists, curators, collectors, and museum directors.
With its A-to-Z format, this year's publication maps the world of Art Basel alongside profiles spotlighting each of the 500+ galleries that participated across the three shows in 2016.

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.
