Live from October 28 to October 31 and featuring 100 Art Basel galleries from 23 countries and territories, ‘OVR:20c’ is dedicated exclusively to works created during the 20th century. Participating galleries will present tightly curated exhibitions showing up to six works simultaneously, celebrating the wide range of artistic production across the century's ten decades.

Collectors will be able to discover 600 exceptional works by a global array of artists who bore an important influence on one of the most noteworthy centuries in art history, spanning painting, sculpture, drawings, installation, and photography, as well as video and digital works.

Multiple galleries will offer presentations that showcase defining decades or critical moments within 20th-century art. Highlights include Fraenkel Gallery’s presentation of photographic works from the 1960s, featuring artists who redefined the rules of the medium, including Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Garry Winogrand; a selection of monumental sculptures and paintings created in 1990 by Kishio Suga, Lee Ufan, Tatsuo Miyajima, and Toshikatsu Endo at SCAI The Bathhouse that illustrate the innovative legacy of Mono-ha; an exhibition by Luciana Brito Galeria that fosters greater international awareness of the Brazilian Concrete art movement of the 1950s, showcasing historical works by ‘Grupo Ruptura’ artists Waldemar Cordeiro, Geraldo de Barros, Kazmer Féjer, Hermelindo Fiaminghi, and Maurício Nogueira Lima; Mazzoleni’s presentation of works by three pioneering Italian artists – Alberto Burri, Lucio Fontana, and Piero Manzoni – who had a profound impact on the growth of new creative trends in the post-war period; and more.
