Noah Horowitz is the new boss of Art Basel
Noah Horowitz is returning to Art Basel as CEO on November 7, 2022. He joins from Sotheby’s where he served as Worldwide Head of Gallery & Private Dealer Services since September 2021. As the outgoing Global Director, Marc Spiegler will hand over the running of the business to Noah Horowitz at this juncture, supporting Noah through year-end, including on the 20th anniversary edition of Art Basel Miami Beach (Dec 1-3). Following this, he will continue in an advisory capacity to Art Basel for the next 6 months.
Marc Spiegler joined MCH Group in 2007 as Co-Director Art Basel and, since 2012, has been Global Director Art Basel. “Following the successful premiere of Paris+ and with the imminent 20th anniversary of Art Basel Miami Beach, I am leaving Art Basel on a high note. » he says. « Leading the next stage of Art Basel’s evolution will take many years and a different set of skills. Having launched new shows in Hong Kong and Paris, staged 43 fairs, and led Art Basel through a global pandemic, it has come time to pass the baton. Fortunately, my friend Noah Horowitz – the perfect person to carry Art Basel forward – will be leading that development. Finally, I would like to thank my incredible team and my colleagues throughout the world for their passion, their commitment, and their dedication in driving patronage to our galleries and their artists. »
« I am honored and delighted to be returning to Art Basel in my new role. I would like to thank MCH Group and Florian for their confidence in me as well as Marc for his stewardship over the years « , says Noah Horowitz. « The Art Basel team is incredibly committed, and I look forward to working with my colleagues and all the stakeholders of the Art Basel community to lead and evolve the business as we collectively embark upon a new chapter. »
