I attended Art Basel in Switzerland, in June 2018. This huge art show takes place at the Swiss exhibition site Messe Basel, which features a hall designed by international architects Herzog & de Meuron. (Exterior view of Messe Basel, above).
Highlights of our trip included a visit to the ‘Bacon – Giacometti’ show at Fondation Beyeler, which studied the parallel, creative careers of two of the 20th century’s most influential artists. See more here.

Thank you to Li Rui for making the trip possible and for being such a stimulating companion.
