SCOPE BASEL 2013 INAUGURATES NEW LOCATION ON THE RHINE BASEL, SWITZERLAND: 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 m2 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.
Easily accessible by Trams 8 & 14, SCOPE Basel will also maintain a complimentary shuttle service in-between the fair and Art Basel, Liste and Volta. Additionally, visitors may reach the fair by a scenic walking route along the Rhine, which will feature SCOPE Basel information kiosks for convenience and refreshment.
