That SCOPE Art Fair is one of the biggest events of its kind in the world is a well-established fact. With over 75 fairs spanning more than 15 years, it is celebrated as the premier showcase for emerging contemporary arts, renowned for its uncanny ability to forecast new visual trends that are embraced globally. SCOPE is proud of its shows taking place in New York, Basel (coming up this year between June 13th and 18th), and Miami Beach, attracting extensive critical acclaim, sales of over one billion and attendance of over 1.5 million visitors! In 2017, the Big Apple edition will also be taking place at a new venue in Chelsea, bringing together more than 50 national and international galleries.
One of the novelties of the 2017 SCOPE Art Fair is its return to a new location in Chelsea neighborhood - the Metropolitan Pavilion. Featuring a critically acclaimed exhibition design, this convenient and well-appointed venue will host both the exhibitors and a focused schedule of special events, performances and talks, to complement its new open-plan exhibition format. At the new venue, SCOPE will continue to be one of the highlights of New York’s Armory Week, constantly in the spirit of innovation merged with dedication to emerging artists and galleries. Attuned to nuances in the market and itself an influential force in the cultural sphere, SCOPE continues to usher in a new vision of the contemporary art fair.

Among them, there is Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea from Milan, bringing artist Richard Johansson, while London’s l’étrangere will present the work of Joanna Rajkowska.
