Art 42 Basel Who’s In Who’s Out

June 15 – 19, 2011

Richard Green and Patrick Painter have pulled out of the worlds biggest Art Fair, Art 42 Basel .The fair is the most important international art show for Modern and contemporary art, held annually in Switzerland. It features nearly 300 leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa. More than 2,500 artists, ranging from the great masters of Modern art to the latest generation of emerging stars, are represented in the show’s multiple sections. The exhibition includes the highest-quality paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, photographs, video and multiple works.

The newly released Art 42 Basel exhibitor list is the crème de la crème of the industry and this year’s barometer reveals a steady rate of stand turnover. 45 galleries — out of around 300 present in 2010 are not returning for the June fair. 12 come out of the desirable Galleries section, where stands position is competitive and held for years by the same galleries. Not returning this year are, London’s Richard Green New York’s Knoedler Dutch dealer Paul Andriesse, San Francisco’s John Berggruen, Berlin’s Eigen + Art & Company, and LA’s Patrick Painter.

The Art Feature and Art Statements sections have the most movement. Galleries must apply for inclusion based on specific projects. These categories account for 37 of the changeover slots.

The fair has claimed back some ground by adding 48 galleries who did not participate in 2010. This includes New York’s Bortolami and Moeller Fine Art, London’s Hazlitt Holland-Hibbert and Beirut’s Sfeir-Semler. LA gallery Overduin and Kite debuts in the Statements section, devoted to solo shows by younger artists, and Maccarone returns to the fair circuit in this section as well. Watch out for the IN List tomorrow.
