June is an art fair and exhibition platform taking place during Basel Art Week.
It gives international galleries working at the forefront of contemporary art a chance to exhibit special projects less than two minutes away from Art Basel, the most established and highly visited art fair in the world.
The fair’s inaugural edition featured fourteen exhibitors from eight countries. Veteran participants of Art Basel and LISTE made a return; other noteworthy galleries and institutions presented their artistic programs in Basel for the first time, including Hannah Hoffman, Los Angeles; Misako & Rosen, Tokyo and Midway Contemporary Art,Minneapolis.
June's most distinctive feature is its modest size. When compared with other fairs and events taking place during Basel Art Week, it offers a different mode of viewing, speed and pace of reception.
June is a platform to promote the work of emerging artists and for rediscovering more established figures. It is an intergenerational example of galleries radically rethinking existing options and working together to create their own flexible institutions and situations.
June is located at Riehenstrasse 90B in a former WWII era bunker, the interior of which has been renovated by renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron. It is conveniently located less than a two-minute walk from Messeplatz and Art Basel.
