With its Parcours sector, the art fair Art Basel in Basel (Switzerland) each year transforms a district of the city into a place where public art is presented. The sixth edition of Parcours had its focus on the area around Münsterplatz, next to the iconic Basel Cathedral. Parcours has for the third time been curated by Florence Derieux, Director of FRAC Champagne-Ardenne. In this video, we have a look at some of the 23 projects, and Florence Derieux provides us with information about this year's edition and the Parcours sector in general.

The 2015 edition of Parcours featured 23 site-specific artworks by internationally renowned as well as emerging artists, the biggest selection to date, including works by Adriano Costa, Alicia Framis, Alicja Kwade, Nate Lowman, Jonathan Monk, Vik Muniz, Peter Regli, David Renggli, Ugo Rondinone, Yves Scherer, Lara Schnitger, Alyson Shotz, and Daniel Silver.
