Art Basel Releases 2013 Exhibitor List -- So What's Different?

Posted: Updated:

Art Basel, the grand dame of all art fairs, has released its exhibitor list for the 44th edition. The 304 exhibitors hail from 39 countries and include many familiar names, including Gagosian Gallery, Blum & Poe, Galerie Perrotin, and Marian Goodman Gallery, among others. Some less-than-brand-name galleries that showed at the fair last year are not returning, including L.A. Louver, Galeria Milan of Sao Paolo, Galerie Anhava of Helsinki, and Regina Gallery of London and Moscow.

Organizers are quick to note that this year features the strongest representation of galleries with exhibition spaces in Asia and the Asia-Pacific region ever to exhibit at the Swiss fair -- 33 in total. This bump may be due in part to Art Basel's increased presence in Asia -- the fair will launch Art Basel Hong Kong in May -- as well as the growing number of international galleries launching outposts in the region. It doesn't necessarily mean there are radically more home grown Asian galleries on Art Basel's roster. In fact, the main Galleries section boasts no first-timers from the region, though new names like Take Ninagawa of Tokyo and Silverlens of the Philippines will be debuting in smaller sections of the fair.

Dealers returning to Art Basel after an absence include Maureen Paley and Alison Jacques of London and PKM Gallery of Seoul. Among the all-new inclusions are photography specialist Howard Greenberg Gallery and Dominique Levy Gallery, a soon-to-launch dealership in New York founded by the former partner at L&M Arts. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Tony Shafrazi Gallery, also of New York, is not returning. Though the dealer has participated in the fair on and off for more than a decade, he ruffled some feathers last year when he chose to canvas his entire booth to his own paintings.

The Feature section, devoted to galleries with precise curatorial projects, will be larger than in previous years, featuring 24 galleries from 16 countries. One highlight is sure to be Herald Street of London, which is presenting a performance piece by Pablo Bronstein featuring four dancers dressed as famous figures from the French Revolution lying motionless on camp beds. Performance will also have a presence in the Statements section, where South African artist Wa Lehulere will present a wall drawing and live performance in the booth of Cape Town's Stevenson Gallery.

The fair will enjoy new and roomier digs this year, as the Statements and Magazines sectors move into an expanded hall designed by starchitect Basel natives Herzog & de Meuron.

Art Basel runs from June 13 to 16, with two full days devoted to VIP viewing beforehand. See the full list of participating dealers below.
