Tally Beck Contemporary will participate in SCOPE Basel featuring artwork by Chinese artists Anne Li, Chen Jiao, Chen Ping and island6 art collective.
Tally Beck Contemporary is a Bangkok-based art consultancy with a gallery on New York’s Lower East Side. It aims to bring the newest and best Asian contemporary art to the rest of the world while introducing international expression into the emerging art scenes of Southeast Asia.
The artists Tally Beck Contemporary brings to Scope Basel this year are four talented artists from the Chinese contemporary scene.
Chen Jiao is an award winning Chinese painter, who presents ironic precisionist paintings of the architecture, vegetation and scholastic and bureaucratic vignettes remembered from her youth in Southwestern China. Chen Ping, also from China, but currently based in Australia, plays with the border between abstraction and representation in his highly textured, monumental oils. From Shanghai, island6 is an artists’ collective that collaborates on dynamic LED pieces that provide an electronically animated commentary on exoticism. Anne Li’s crisp photography injects humanity into rigorous formal compositions.
SCOPE, the art show renowned for curating cutting edge contemporary art from around the world, returns to Basel for the fifth year. Held at the historic Kaserne offering over 5,000 m², SCOPE will provide an opportunity for gallerists, collectors, curators, artists, critics and art lovers alike to experience the contemporary art market’s latest offerings. SCOPE runs from June 15 till June 19. Tally Beck Contemporary will be located at booth G24.
