June Art Fair is pleased to announce that its second annual edition will take place online from August 20-31, in collaboration with ArtReview and international gallery Hauser & Wirth, which will host the fair on its website. A special, dedicated microsite featuring additional content that supports each participating gallery will be available on artreview.com.
The first edition of June Art Fair, debuting during Basel Art Week in 2019, was set inside a concrete bunker transformed into an exhibition space by Pritzker Prize winning architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron. Providing an alternative to a conventional art fair viewing experience, this new addition to the Basel Art Week calendar was distinguished by a highly-selective, intergenerational group of participants presenting projects in an open format more akin to a meticulously curated, collaborative, public exhibition. Other notable attributes of the June Art Fair included its modest scale and convenient site located in close proximity to the Messeplatz and Art Basel.
Founded as an independent project by galleries VI, VII (Oslo) and Christian Andersen, (Copenhagen), June Art Fair is an initiative led by pioneering galleries working at the forefront of contemporary art. It is a platform to promote the work of emerging artists and to encourage rediscovery of more established but under-recognized figures.
