Art Basel is a yearly big visual art event which originated in the appropriately named Basel, Switzerland. Then it spread to Miami and I believe there is one in Hong Kong. Art Basel is a very big deal in Miami, attracting hordes of locals and people flying in from around the world. In Miami it is held every December. Now the one in Switzerland is held every June and I was in Switzerland during the Basel city one. Ironically, I did not have the impression it was a big as a deal there as in Miami.
Anyway, I am going to show some of the one which captured my attention.
This one was one if not the most interesting one there. It is a slinky made out of paper which represent sculptures when not stretched out. The artist is Li Hongbo.
These are LED screen sculptures/installments
