Best Design Events offer you Europe’s Art and Design Guide for Summer 2014. Stunning museums, the edgy galleries of London and sexy galleries of Madrid, exciting cultural institutions… Europe plays a major role in the world of contemporary art, and – unsurprisingly – hosts countless art events throughout the year. Lets take a look at what’s on in Europe, from Pop Art Exhibition in Madrid  to exhibitions in London Saachi Gallery.

Madrid, Spain | Pop Art Myths

10 June – 14 September

Madrid’s wonderful Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum applies 21st century thinking to the 20th century phenomenon of pop art. Roughly 70 pieces from names such as Rauschenberg,WesselmannLichtenstein and Hockney and including British, American and European artists, will be on display during the Pop Art Myths exhibition. Curators hope the show will dispel the banality myth that surrounds the art form and show that the artists not only had a unique way of perceiving reality, but the form is still influential amongst artists today.

Basel, Switzerland | Art Basel

19 – 22 June

Art Basel is an art fair bucket list item: every art lover should attend at least once. Modern and contemporary art by both well-known and emerging artists makes this the place to ‘see’ old friends and make new discoveries. Art Basel has it all, from sculpture to photography, and represents art at its absolute best. Its international approach is another reason why Art Basel is so special – not only are there about 300 galleries from all over the world, thousands of global art lovers are also there, excited to see what’s new.

23 – 26 October

With Paris’ excellent Foire Internationale d’Art Contemporain happening on the heels of Frieze, October might just be the month for Europe’s art lovers. While FIAC might not have the size of Art Basel or the reputation of Frieze, the fair brings together a mix of international and French dealers, curators and collectors for an excellent take on modern and contemporary art from both established and emerging galleries and artists.
