Celebrated as a premier showcase for international emerging contemporary art and multi-disciplinary creative programming, SCOPE returns to New York City for its 17th edition. Having organised more than 75 art fairs across 15 years, the fair has built itself a wide-ranging reputation. Renowned for its ability to forecast new visual trends and talent, SCOPE’s shows attract over 500 million annual impressions across print, digital and television.
Opening on 2 March, and running until 5 March, it was the first fair to run concurrent with The Armory Show. In 2017, SCOPE will be held at a new Chelsea location at Metropolitan Pavilion. Boasting a critically-acclaimed exhibition design, this convenient and well-appointed venue is set to host 56 international galleries, alongside a focused schedule of special events. The fair opens its doors for the Platinum First View and VIP Preview on 2 March, ahead of its general public access from 3 March.
Featured artists and exhibitors include Stefan Papco from Zahorian & Van Espen; Kinu Kamura represented by Z Gallery Arts; Joanna Rajkowska with l’étrangère; Sarah Bahbah from Art Unified; and James Austin Murray from Lyons Wier Gallery. Attendees will be able to access the fair’s catalogue and full exhibitors list by downloading the SCOPE Art App. This unique application invites visitors to collect favourite pieces, identify art and exhibitors, and reflect on previous SCOPE editions.
