June Art Fair has announced the 18 exhibitors that will participate in its upcoming edition in Basel, Switzerland, which will run June 13 to June 19 in an underground bunker designed by Herzog & de Meuron.
Among the galleries lined up to participate are New York’s Foxy Production, Tokyo’s Misako & Rosen, Amsterdam’s Ellen de Bruijne Projects, and The Green Gallery of Milwaukee. First-time exhibitors include New York’s Downs & Ross, Arcade of London and Brussels, and Sydney from Australia.
In addition to the physical iteration, the fair will also launch an NFT exhibition on Juneart.io, curated by artist Jared Madere, that will include the work of Darja Bajagić, Sam Anderson, Amalia Ulman, and Wretched Worm.
Founded by dealers Christian Andersen, who runs an eponymous gallery in Copenhagen, and Esperanza Rosales, founder of VI, VII in Oslo, in 2019, this iteration marks the fair’s fourth edition. Andersen and Rosales said in an interview that they want the fair to act as stepping stone between Basel’s two June art fairs: Liste, which hosts more emerging galleries, and Art Basel, considered the world’s top fair. “It’s a place for curators and even collectors to make some discoveries,” Andersen said.
June Art Fair will return to the Herzog & de Meuron–designed bunker, which it was not able to use last September for the fair’s third edition because of pandemic concerns. Though the 2021 edition, at Messe Basel exhibition center allowed for more galleries, the upcoming fair will again return to its smaller numbers, which Rosales said, “makes for a sharper curatorial selection.”
