There may still be some lingering snow on the ground in New York after the blizzard of 2016, but it’s time to mark your calendars for summer, as the official list of galleries is out for the original Swiss iteration of the Art Basel mega-fair, now in its 47th edition.

The fair stands to be even bigger than last year, with four additional galleries added—287 dealers will make their way to the fair, up from 283. Exhibitors will be divided into several sectors, including Editions, for prints and limited-edition artwork, Features, for curatorial projects, and Statements, which focuses on new galleries showing emerging artists.

The Bâloise Art Prize will be awarded to up to two artists featured in Statements, who will receive solo exhibitions at the Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main and Mudam Luxembourg. Bâloise Group will also purchase and donate some of their work to the museums.

As always, the heart of the fair will be the massive galleries sector, this year featuring 221 dealers, including eight first-time exhibitors, six of whom are graduating from the Statements and Feature sectors. New to the fair are Mexico City’s joségarcía, mx, and New York’s Pace/MacGill.

A number of 2015 exhibitors are conspicuously absent this time around: Peter Blum Gallery, New York; Galerie Klüser, Munich; Barbara Mathes Gallery, New York; Moeller Fine Art, New York, Berlin; Galerie Mark Müller, Zurich; Proyectos Monclova, Mexico City; and Anthony Reynolds Gallery, London.

At least one gallery’s split from the fair was less than mutual. Mark Müller provided artnet News with a letter he had sent to clients, artists, and friends explaining why he would not be showing in Basel for the first time in 23 years. “Art Basel has placed me on the waiting list, with no explanation, just a standard rejection letter,” he wrote. “It seems that the goal is to make space for ‘younger and more hyped’ galleries.”

Expected highlights of the fair include rare Pop art work by Robert Smithson at James Cohen Gallery, new paintings by Sadie Benning at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, and, perhaps, an unsanctioned naked performance piece by Milo Moiré.
