An international contemporary art fair during Art Basel 

The international contemporary art fair YIA ART FAIR #10 presents its annual meeting point for gallerists and art collectors at the Basel Art Center, only 10 minutes from Art Basel and on the way to Liste.

Founded in 2010 in Paris, the YIA ART FAIR has established itself as a must-see for contemporary creation by affirming its will to bring a vision to international art.

Following the success of its editions in Paris in October during the FIAC, in Maastricht During TEFAF and in Brussels during Art Brussels, the fair naturally continues its exspansion and annual meeting in Basel, in parallel with the famous Art Basel, Volta and Liste.

For this first edition in the capital of art, YIA ART FAIR reveals her new positioning:

“YIA, Yesterday Is Aujourd’hui”
A dialogue between epochs, articulated around the fields of modern and contemporary art.

During 4 days, 35 excellent international and emerging galleries will present at the Basel Art Center an emerging contemporary scene and emblematic artists from the early twentieth century to the present day.

More than 10 nationalities make up this first edition of YIA Basel. Including a strong presence of European exhibitors, but also galleries throughout the world. They are all integrated in the circuit of the most prestigious international fairs, from Nada to FIAC, Volta or Artissima.

The galleries invest in the two levels of the Basel Art Center to represent the eclecticism of a high-quality artistic scene created at the same time by emerging artists and historical works. Thus, showing the diversity and strength of the mediums of one century to the next; Painting, sculpture, drawing, plastic installation, photography, video and editions ...

Continuity of an implication on the different strongholds of art, YIA ART FAIR Basel accompanies gallery owners in the relationship with international collectors. We also develop encounters and exchanges between these actors of art, across all levels of the market by the sole common concern for quality.

Applications are still open ; the selection will be made by receival of the file and by the quality of the curatorial project.

On this edition, the booths are 12, 15, 20, 30 and 40m2. The price per m2 is 460 euros on the ground floor and 370 euros on the second exhibition plateau.
