Application deadline: April 15, 2009
 
BRIDGE BASEL, SWITZERLAND AT DREISPITZHALLE
June 10-14, 2009

APPLICATION DEADLINE: April 15, 2009

Bridge Art Fair is proud to announce its inaugural edition of Bridge Basel to take place June 10-14, 2009, in Basel, Switzerland concurrent with the esteemed Art Basel. Basel draws the largest international audience internationally of all the major contemporary fairs, and Bridge Basel enjoys built-in guarantees to ensure attendance by collectors, curators and art professionals from around the world.

During the 40th Anniversary of Art Basel, Bridge Art Fair has been accepted to stage the Bridge Art Fair in a new facility, the Dreispitzhalle. Dreispitzhalle is the event facility centerpiece of the up-and-coming hot spot in Basel, Dreispitz. In the coming years, this area will host a design school, top-notch galleries and many other art institutions. The Dreispitzhalle, the anchor of the neighborhood’s future international art and cultural activities, will host Bridge as the first-ever art fair in the Dreispitz area of Basel during the Art Basel fair. Bridge boasts a degree of local support, to deliver a fair that balances cultural and commercial interests, enjoyed by no other satellite show.

Dreispitzhalle

Bridge Art Fair in the Dreispitzhalle will take place almost across the street from the largest private art collection in the world, the Schaulager. The Schaulager open house is an important draw every year for art professionals and major art collectors from around the world during Art Basel.

If there is any market in the world where collectors and galleries want to go right now, it is Basel. Bridge is also working with event producers at Triebwerk, who helped make the Volta Show Basel a success.

Verge Edition of Bridge Basel

Bridge will also stage Verge in an office building next door to the Dreispitzhalle. Premiered as an alternative edition of the Bridge Art Fair in Berlin during the 2008 installment of Art Forum Berlin, Verge Basel will be presented as a unique companion showcase to Bridge: a showcase of only artist-run spaces and projects. Verge will expand on the artistic and cultural focus of Bridge by providing a previously unavailable non-commerical platform for artist-run spaces.
