June is an art fair and exhibition platform taking place during Basel Art Week.

It gives galleries a chance to exhibit special projects in Basel outside the setting of existing fairs.

June is collectively organized by 14 international galleries working at the forefront of contemporary art. It serves to compliment the fairs taking place during Basel Art Week, offering a different mode of viewing, speed and pace of reception.

June is a platform to promote the work of emerging artists and for rediscovering more established figures. It is an intergenerational example of galleries radically rethinking existing options and working together to create their own flexible institutions and situations.

The vast majority of participants in June's first edition presented their programs in Basel for the first time, including Hannah Hoffman, Los Angeles; Misako & Rosen, Tokyo and Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis.

June is located at Riehenstrasse 90B in former WWII era bunker, the interior of which has been renovated by renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron. It is conveniently located less than a two-minute walk from Messeplatz and Art Basel.

Founding galleries:
VI, VII, Oslo
Christian Andersen, Copenhagen
