OK, everybody knows about Basel Art Fair, one of the biggest fairs in the world. We have covered the Basel Art Fair 2015, and we saw some remarkable artworks and sales. However, Switzerland can be proud of another art fair taking place in the country’s biggest city – Contemporary Art International Zurich. The Contemporary Art Fair Zurich / Art International Zurich is one of the most important and well-established art market places of Switzerland. Since 1999, the art fair has established itself with quality and internationality as a public trade and consumer show in Zurich. Last year, more than 19 000 people visited the fair, and this year, the number will probably be even higher. This is the 17th edition of the art fair, and it will bring together more than twenty galleries from around the world. In addition, more than thirty international art positions, estates and collections will present their artists and artworks.
