While Strychnin Gallery is strictly speaking, not a gallery for Fantastic and Visionary Art, they do at times exhibit artists that fall into those realms. They have also in recent times started to collaborate with a number of Fantastic Art projects.

That in itself is enough to warrant attention, but when they also attend a number of the best selling and most visited art fairs, they deserve a closer look.

Basel – SCOPE, the art show that has established its name by curating cutting edge contemporary art from around the world, returns to Basel for the fourth year. Running concurrent with Art Basel for the next three years, SCOPE’s new high profile venue at historic Kaserne is just blocks from Art Basel 41.

Strychnin Gallery presents a collection of artworks from artists such as Margaret Bowland, David Hochbaum, Madeline von Foerster, Marina Bychkova, Mark Evans, Foox, BORIS + NATASCHA, Alenxandra Lier, Mimi S., Saturno Buttò and Virginie Ropars.

This year’s Basel edition of the fair will present 85 international galleries upholding its tradition of solo and thematic group shows presented alongside museum-quality programming, collector tours, screenings, and special events.

SCOPE expands this year in partnership with Kaserne’s cultural organizations, featuring: film, music, theatre and performance.

“This season we want to highlight SCOPE’s lead role as creative R&D for a wider audience of taste makers who make art their business” says SCOPE President & Founder Alexis Hubshman.

With art fairs in Miami, Basel, New York, London, and the Hamptons, SCOPE Art Show has garnered critical acclaim, with sales of over $100 million and attendance of over 300,000 visitors.
