One of the leading art fairs on the global art scene today, SCOPE is about to kick off in New York, for the first time this season. Scheduled for the very beginning of March, SCOPE 2014 returns to its signature location, Skylight at Moynihan Station. The fourteenth edition of SCOPE in New York will transform the main hall of the Postal Dock, hosting 60 international galleries in the main program and 20 new galleries in the Breeder program under the 30 foot long vaulted glass ceiling. The participating galleries flock to New York from 22 countries across the globe, eager to display the best and the most daring contemporary art created by the emerging and mid-career creatives.
SCOPE New York VIP opening is scheduled for March 6, and it will be open to public from March 7 to 9, 2014.
SCOPE New York is proud to assume the title of the leading incubator for new art, dedicating a substantial portion of the program to new galleries. This fragment of SCOPE NY is named the Breeder Program, and it represents a fantastic exposure opportunity. A lot of established and revered contemporary galleries belong to the Breeder Program alumni, and among them is the innovative Berlin space - Peres Projects Gallery.
SCOPE 2014 naturally includes all the leading urban art spaces, and here is what they have planned for the fair.
