Due to the ongoing impact of the pandemic and travel restrictions worldwide, the 2021 edition of Art Basel will now take place at Messe Basel from 23 to 26 September, with preview days on 21 and 22 September, 2021. This year, the fair will also present three Online Viewing Rooms, to which all galleries accepted to Art Basel's shows between 2016 and 2021 will be invited to apply. ‘OVR: Pioneers’, taking place from 24 to 27 March, will be dedicated to artists who have broken new grounds aesthetically, conceptually, or socio-politically. A second thematic Online Viewing Rooms will take place from 16 to 19 June, with the fair's curators determining themes and helping to select the participating galleries. At the beginning of November, ‘OVR:2021’ will exclusively feature artworks created this year.
