Art Basel 2019 in Basel, Switzerland will open its doors to the public starting June 13. Over 290 galleries from 34 countries will present work at the Swiss fair including international giants Pace, David Zwirner, and Perrotin. Upstaging them all is leading contemporary art institute, Gagosian. The gallery opened a large pop-up space at the fair’s Messeplatz venue which turned out to be a permanent location — it’s 17th space as per Artsy.

While art world luminaries such as Gagosian can expect long queues at their booths, those attending the fair should also pay a visit to the more underrated galleries participating at Basel. From Arthur Jafa’s Hulk-inspired Le Rage (2017) installation to new light sculptures by Olafur Eliasson, these unmissable artists are represented by the notable contemporary art spaces below.
