Art Basel, which will open its doors on 15 June for four days, is seen as the world’s most important contemporary art show of the international art market. KAPAG produced the material for the 2 mm thick book cover of the show’s official Art Basel | Year 47 catalogue.
Having previously selected a deep black (Year 45) and an Indigo blue (Year 46) cartonboard, the organisers this time decided on a tender almond green colour for the cover of their catalogue. The annual catalogue not only looks at Art Basel but also includes the art shows in Miami Beach and Hong Kong. It features interviews, essays as well as personal highlights from curators, collectors, museum directors and artists. In total, there are around 300 internationally renowned galleries that exhibit at Art Basel. The show is therefore considered to be a highpoint for art connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike.
