In 2014, Kickstarter and Art Basel formed a collaboration to support outstanding, non-commercial art projects from around the world. Art Basel maintains a curated page on Kickstarter featuring projects selected by their jury, consisting of curator and writer Hammad Nasar, Glenn Phillips from the Getty Research Institute, and Mari Spirito of Protocinema and Alt Art Space.

Art Basel has featured over 50 public and nonprofit art projects on their page, from an international photography festival in Lagos to a center for Asian art in Sydney, from an artist residency in Northern Thailand to an art library in Mexico City, and from a series of artist-designed billboards in LA to a sound art project at the first and only contemporary art museum in Guatemala.
