Scope 2015, 3/6-3/8

SCOPE New York’s open-plan design eschews the cookie-cutter art fair clamor for a decidedly thoughtful, polished presentation. Maintaining exhibition square footage and improving useable wall space, galleries will no longer be divided into small booths, but rather, flow beautifully into one another, creating curatorial narratives that encompasses the entire show.

SCOPE’s flagship fair will commemorate its 15th anniversary in a new location: one block across from The Armory Show piers at Metropolitan Pavilion West. SCOPE New York’s convenient and well-appointed venue will host 60 international galleries and a focused schedule of special events, performances and talks to complement its new open-plan exhibition format.

15 years ago, SCOPE Art Show mounted its first edition and changed the landscape of the contemporary art fair industry. The first fair to run concurrent with The Armory Show, SCOPE’s spirit of innovation has consistently forged the way for emerging artists, galleries and art fairs. Attuned to nuances in the market and itself an influential force in the cultural sphere, SCOPE is again poised to usher in a new vision of the contemporary art fair.
