Established in 2019, the inaugural edition of June Art Fair was set inside a concrete bunker transformed into an exhibition space by Pritzker Prize winning architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron.
An alternative to a conventional art fair viewing experience, the fair is gallery led and distinguished by a highly-selective, intergenerational group of participants presenting projects in an open format more akin to a meticulously curated, collaborative, public exhibition.
A modest scale and convenient site located in close proximity to Messeplatz and Art Basel are notable attributes.
The third annual edition took place in Hall 4.1 of Messe Basel, and marked the fair’s physical return to Basel after last year’s Special Online Edition presented on Hauserwirth.com in collaboration with Hauser & Wirth and ArtReview.
Founded as an independent project by galleries VI, VII (Oslo) and Christian Andersen, (Copenhagen) the fair was conceived as a platform to promote the work of emerging artists and to encourage the discovery of under-recognized figures.
