Art Week Basel:
Basel becomes the world’s largest temporary museum during the third week of June. Art Basel, the most important trade fair of the international art market, takes place here. The numerous parallel fairs and exhibitions also offer contemporary art of the finest quality. Basel Art Week brings together gallery owners, artists, collectors, curators and many celebrities from the cultural scene.
A lot is happening not only at the fairground, but also on the Grossbasel side in the Quartier St.Johann. After RHY ART had already opened up the terrain in 2015, further international exhibitions and art fairs are now settling in Basel-St.Johann.
The hall of the Rhypark Basel is a hall with lots of daylight and a large window front directly onto the banks of the Rhine. The new Rhine bank route through the three-country triangle (Switzerland, Germany, France) leads directly along the Rhypark.
From the Art Basel exhibition ground there is a direct tram line to Rhypark (tram 14 or 21, 5 stops to ‘Novartis Campus’). There is also a direct tram line from Basel-SBB main station (tram 1 in only 15 minutes). The Rhypark can be reached from the international airport EuroAirport in 20 minutes (bus 50, then tram 1).
