Every year days before Art Basel, the highest-profile event on the jammed calendar of international art fairs, members of the art world’s inner circle gathered in Zurich for a dinner in the concrete, bunkerlike storage room of a luxury fashion store.
Galleries, museums and private collectors in several European art capitals now schedule events ahead of Basel for influential players, who tend to jet off after the first or second day of the official event. Everyone want’s to be in Art Basel!
After-parties may be the coveted tickets during New York Fashion Week or the Oscars in Los Angeles, but in the art game, it is all about the pre-party.
This is the spirit of Art Basel parties celebrate Art with the best and only the best.
