This year marks the 4th edition of the June Art Fair. The fair was founded in 2019 by art dealers Christian Andersen and Esperanza Rosales. A prominent even in Switzerland’s art scene, the fair acts as an important link between two other major art fairs in June in Basel – Liste and Art Basel. In 2021, the fair was hosted at the Messe Basel Exhibition Centre, a larger space that allowed for more galleries and viewers. However, this year the June Art Fair is returning to the bunker designed by Herzog & de Meuron.
As per Rosales, the smaller space allows for “sharper curatorial selection.” Speaking about the fair, Anderson said: “It’s a place for curators and even collectors to make some discoveries.” Anderson runs the Christian Anderson Gallery in Copenhagen, Denmark. Rosales is the founder of VI, VII in Oslo. Apart from the usual galleries, the event will also have a digital NFT exhibition on juneart.io. June Art Fair is scheduled to run from June 13 to June 19.
