Assistant Parcours (temp. Jan - June)


Art Basel stages the world's premier art shows for modern and contemporary works, sited in Basel, Miami Beach, Hong Kong and Paris. Defined by its host city and region, each show is unique, which is reflected in its participating galleries, the artworks on display and the parallel content programming produced in collaboration with the local institutions. In addition to ambitious stands featuring leading galleries from around the globe, each show's singular exhibition sectors and artistic events spotlight the latest developments in the visual arts, offering visitors new ideas, new inspiration, and new contacts in the artworld.

Parcours is Art Basel's unique sector for site-specific installations, sculptures, interventions, and performances situated in public spaces and historic sites throughout the close neighborhood of Art Basel. Parcours encourages a deeper engagement between the artworks and the urban environment, inviting visitors to explore the cultural and architectural versatility of Basel while encountering contemporary art pieces that create new dialogues and perspectives.
