The particular exhibition during the Basel Art Week.
RHY ART was born from the vision of giving independent artists a presentation space during the Basel Art Week.
The founding aim of this exhibition is to put artists back at the centre of the art market, to discover young artists and to present the achievements of established artists.
There are many talented people in the art world, and RHY ART offers them a forum for personal contact with the public. The exhibition thus offers an attractive forum for art dealers, curators and collectors.
Since its founding in 2015, artists from 25 countries have presented their works at RHY ART.
