BASEL, SWITZERLAND: Celebrating eight years in Basel, SCOPE Art Show returns to its pioneering location in Klybeckquai, the new art and culture center of Basel. A wellspring of cultural development for Basel Stadt, SCOPE was the first in what is now a series of extraordinary happenings centered on the New Arts District on the Rhine.

In proximity to SCOPE Basel's 4,000m 2 pavilion, the Tinguely Museum will present Jean Tinguely's brilliant musical performance "Cyclope" along with several restaurants, bars, and clubs orchestrating "pop-ups" along the once-industrial riverfront. SCOPE is delighted to be at the center of this focused cultural moment in Basel.

SCOPE Basel will welcome 75 International Exhibitors alongside 20 Breeder Program Galleries, offering a view of the contemporary art market available nowhere else. Exhibitors hail from over 20 countries, with Breeder Galleries selected by a curatorial panel.

SCOPE Basel opens to VIPs and Press on Tuesday, June 17, with its Platinum First View benefit from 12pm - 8pm; the fair will run June 18-22, 2014. Accessible by trams 8 & 14, SCOPE Basel will also maintain a complimentary shuttle service in-between the fair and Art Basel, Liste and VOLTA10. Additionally, visitors may reach the fair by a scenic walking route along the Rhine, which will feature SCOPE Basel information points for convenience.
