The big lesson at Art Basel is that art (whether it be photographic or not) needs to be experienced. The viewer needs to be physically confronted with a work, to move towards it, draw back, or lose himself or herself in it. This pilgrimage is not made only to buy art but also to discover something new, to feel the pulse of the artistic trends which dominate the market. Art Unlimited, located in an adjacent hall to Art Basel, confronts the viewer with a series of major works which have been selected by participating galleries. Less dense than the succession of stands in the main hall, Art Unlimited is a welcome respite at the beginning or the end of your visit to Art Basel.
