Art Basel, Switzerland
11-16 June

The Swiss edition of Art Basel has announced a packed, city-wide program for its upcoming 2024 edition, with 287 galleries from 40 countries. 22 of the galleries will be mounting booths at the fair for the first time. This year also marks the first time Art Basel will be fully under the direction of Maike Cruse, currently the Director of Gallery Weekend Berlin, - one of the first hires Noah Horowitz made after taking his place as the fair’s chief executive in 2022. Of the 287 galleries, 245 will make up the main section of the fair. 7 of these galleries previously contributed to the Feature or Statements sections, including Commonwealth and Council, Galerie Crèvecœur, Gaga, and Tina Kim Gallery.

Artmonte-carlo, Monaco5-7 July
The eighth edition of artmonte-carlo will be held on July 6 and 7, 2024 at Monaco’s Grimaldi Forum, under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. The Art Fair will host leading international galleries of modern and contemporary art in an elegant atmosphere and meticulous scenography. This year’s edition invited just 35 galleries to take part, but wealthy patrons and residents of the Mediterranean tax haven say they prefer the intimate size. Initiated in 2016, artmonte-carlo is a Salon d’Art whose intention is to establish a quality art event on the Côte d’Azur, honouring the demands of the region’s many collectors and art lovers.

Tokyo Gendai, Yokohama
4-7 July

Though much of the crowd that regularly attends art events takes the summer off after Art Basel ends, Art Assembly’s Japan fair takes place again in early July, Tokyo Gendai. Taking place at a convention centre in nearby Yokohama, the fair, headed up by Eri Takane, will gather between 80 and 90 exhibitors this year. The fair’s second edition will be a major test for the Japanese art market’s continued longevity, especially as it compares to that of Seoul, Taipei, Singapore, and Hong Kong, the latter of which has long held eminence in Asia.
