LikeArtBasel is aimed at raising the exposure of Internet and Technology aware art. A group exhibition curated with the belief that art should be reflective of its time, these works address subjects unique to the technology infused society and internet fluent culture of today. Some artists in this exhibition have never sold work, while others have exhibited in venues such as The Whitney Biennial, Saatchi Gallery, The Venice Biennial, and The New Museum. Believing that art’s power is intrinsically social, LikeArtBasel is curated under the basis that an artist’s newfound clout is measured in quantities of Facebook “Likes”, not the Biennials. The outcome of this fresh curatorial style is democratic and honest – demanding only the best.

The LikArtBasel opening reception will be followed by a one night exhibition hosting artists and their projectors:
