SCOPE Art Show will present its seventh Basel edition in a new location: Klybeckquai, on the Rhine. An area that has been receiving a great deal of attention and political support from the City of Basel, Klybeckquai is quickly becoming a site for focused cultural development. SCOPE Basel is pleased to be at the forefront of this groundswell, mounting its 4,000-square-meter pavilion in the heart of Klybeckquai, along with an extensive marketing campaign and engineering of collaborative efforts with many of the city’s most influential voices.

Featuring 75 international Exhibitors alongside 20 Breeder Program Galleries, SCOPE Basel 2013 will provide an extraordinary opportunity for visitors to experience a view of the contemporary art market available nowhere else. SCOPE’s presence will be highly visible; In addition to museum-quality featured programming, SCOPE Basel will present monumental outdoor sculptures from artists featured in the Venice Biennale. Further celebrating the Biennale, SCOPE Basel has extended its vernissage to welcome an extended group of influential attendees whose impact on the cultural landscape is of inestimable importance.

SCOPE Basel opens to Press and VIPs on Monday and Tuesday, June 10 and 11, with a two-day First View benefit from 1 to 9pm, and will run June 12 to 16. Easily accessible by Trams 8 and 14, SCOPE Basel will also maintain a complimentary shuttle service between the fair and Art Basel, Liste and Volta. Additionally, visitors may reach the fair by a scenic walking route along the Rhine, featuring SCOPE Basel information points for convenience.
