Kunsthalle Basel is a place for innovative contemporary art exhibitions of an emerging generation of artists. As Switzerland's oldest and still most active institution for contemporary art, Kunsthalle Basel forms a vital part of Basel's cultural centre and is located next to the city's theatre, opposite the concert house Stadtcasino, and in the same building as the famed Restaurant Kunsthalle. Bringing together local and international contemporary art tendencies, Kunsthalle Basel is well known for its presentation of thought-provoking new artworks and display methodologies, as well as for its wide range of public programs that include artist talks, performances, and film screenings. With a long list of esteemed curators and directors who have helmed the institution, including over the last decades, Jean-Christophe Ammann, Peter Pakesch, and Adam Szymczyk, it has, since November 2014, been directed by Los Angeles-born Elena Filipovic.
