This year’s Art Basil 2018 enjoys a premier line-up of galleries from around the world. The list includes 293 galleries, drawn from 35 countries across Europe, Africa, Asia as well as from both North and South America.
The lineup will include a staggering number of almost 4 000 artists that will be displaying their work to the international art world. Of the 293 galleries, 17 galleries will be joining the fair for the first time.

Some of the first time participants in the fair include White Space – Beijing as well as four new exhibitors from the US.

“Highlights of this year’s edition include ambitious projects by historical and emerging artists in Feature and Statements.”
