International Fine Art Biennial Basel



MAMAG Modern Art Museum organizes "International Fine Art Biennial Basel" from 16 to 18 June 2017 during the Art Basel Art Week. The Art Basel Week attracts around 98000 collectors, museum directors, curators, gallery owners, artists and art lovers.

The MAMAG Modern Art Museum chose as the location for the Biennial of one of the historic Grand Hotels: Hotel Euler in the heart of Basel with its perfect accessibility. The Hotel Euler was built in 1867 by Abraham Euler and has been one of the first of the high hospitality in Europe. The hotel was taken over by the Manz family in 1981 and despite renovations, its charming tradition includes one of the grand hotels. The restaurant and bar with elegant sun terrace lure many guests and are one of the popular meeting places in Basel. Centrally located elegant building with the perfect proximity to the train station is a gathering point for the art lovers during the Art Basel Art Week.

Participating artists from the biennial from all over the world will be selected by the curators and invited to represent their works at the Biennial.

"International Fine Art Biennial Basel" is a perfect opportunity for the visitors of the Art Basel Week to enjoy the art works of prominent and up-and-coming artists in elegant, historic rooms of the Hotel Euler. Curator of the MAMAG Modern Art Museum Heinz Playner will lead the visitors personally through the Biennale in the Salon Rouge. A cocktail, business lunch or a romantic dinner will round off the art enjoyment.
