Scope: An art fair with a selection of eccentric artworks. Every year, they choose colorful materials and exhibit lots of 3D works (sculpture). A virtual tour is available on its website to re-visit the exhibition. 

Photo Basel: This exhibition, which started 2 years ago, is becoming popular and focuses only on photography. Printed 2D works have depth and tell stories.

This once-in-a-lifetime encounter with art and people stimulates visitors and creates precious experiences. Why not visit Art Basel?
