DIRECTOR, ART BASEL
As the man in charge of the world’s behemoth art fair, now in three cities, Spiegler oversees the growth of this global presence. The former journalist has been in charge of the 40-year-old operation since 2007. He led the fair’s expansion to Asia, and Art Basel Hong Kong opened its doors for the third time this year. This year, in Basel, large-scale works by Ai Weiwei, Kenneth Anger, and Martin Creed, among others, will be included in the fair’s Unlimited section (June 18–21).
