Skopia Gallery was founded in Nyon in February 1989 by Pierre-Henri Jaccaud. From the outset, it has worked with a new generation of Swiss artists, distinguishing itself through its rigorous selection of works and a large number of premières. It has exhibited at Art Basel since 1993.
In 1994, Skopia Gallery relocated to the SIP area in Geneva, a former industrial wasteland now home to the Centre for Contemporary Art and the MAMCO (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art). Since its first programme, the gallery has sought to develop contacts with internationally renowned artists, both Swiss and foreign.
