Now, over forty years later, its three fairs - in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami Beach rank as the premier shows of their kind, presenting 20th and 21st century art with a strong curatorial perspective.

Our reputation for showing work of the highest quality has attracted the leading international gallerists and collectors, offering the show’s visitors the most important art that world's best galleries can offer.
