5th Contemporary Artist Positions
June 16 - 19, 2022
Rhypark Basel, Switzerland


From 16 to 19 June 2022, RHY ART SALON BASEL presents contemporary art at Rhypark.

The exhibition focuses on individual artist presentations (solo / one-person shows) and forms a relaxed complement to the usual gallery fairs in a compact space.
Current and international positions of contemporary art are presented here in a stylish way. Works by newcomers and established artists are offered, including painting, graphic art, sculpture, photography, digital art and installations.

As an independent exhibition and sales platform, the RHY ART SALON is an attractive forum for professionals such as art dealers, consultants and curators as well as private art collectors and occasional art buyers. RHY ART is the ideal place to start or refresh your own art collection. At the exhibition, there are artworks not only for large budgets, but also for medium and small budgets.
Since its inception in 2015, artists from 25 countries have presented their works at the RHY ART SALON.

RHY ART serves communication, trade and contact with the public, and the purchase of artworks is possible. RHY ART SALON puts the artists back at the centre of the art market. With a beautiful view and in a pleasant atmosphere, artists and galleries of RHY ART take visitors on a journey of discovery.

Event location
The hall building of Rhypark Basel is a hall with lots of daylight and a large window front directly on the banks of the Rhine. The Rhine bank trail through the border triangle (Switzerland, Germany, France) runs directly along the Rhypark.
From the Exhibition Square of Art Basel, a direct tram line leads to the Rhypark (tram 14 or 21, five stops to 'Novartis Campus').
There is also a direct tram line from Basel-SBB main station (tram 1 in 15 minutes).
From the international EuroAirport airport, the Rhypark can be reached in 20 minutes (bus 50, then tram 1).

Basel- Cultural Capital of Switzerland.
In Basel, Swiss quality meets a multicultural population in the border region with France and Germany. This makes the city unmistakably cosmopolitan, international and innovative. With its diverse cultural scene and annual top-class events, Basel is a cultural hotspot of Switzerland.
In Basel, culture is lived, made, promoted and celebrated. On a small area there is an exceptionally dense, high-quality and internationally respected offer. Nearly forty museums in the city show trend-setting fine arts from antiquity to the present day. The high-calibre special exhibitions of the Fondation Beyeler, the Museum of Art and the Museum of Antiquities are known throughout the world. The visual arts also play an important role outside the museums. Visitors are confronted with art in public spaces everywhere in the beautiful Old Town.

Rhy = Rhine.
The RHY ART SALON is named after the Alemannic name for the Rhine, because the Rhine, Basel's landmark, accounts for a major part of the quality of life that Basel offers its inhabitants and guests. The Rhypark venue also has the High Rhine (Hochrhy) in its name.

Corona also upset our exhibition plans last year. In order to combat the Corona pandemic as well as to comply with official requirements, we have developed a protection concept according to FOPH specifications and have already successfully implemented it since 2020 with extended hygiene and distance measures. Our protection concept can be flexibly adapted to the current health and legal situation and is continuously refined and updated for our events. We look forward to the coming period with confidence and motivation.
