NEW YORK- Building on Miami’s overwhelming success, SCOPE launches its 2011 season with its flagship fair, SCOPE New York. Serviced daily by shuttles, this year SCOPE expands to a 60,000 square foot hall on the West Side Highway, minutes from The Armory Show. The fair opens to Press and VIP’s on Wednesday, March 2 with the FirstView benefit.

SCOPE New York’s invitees will uphold its unique tradition of solo and thematic group shows providing the real opportunity for gallerists, collectors, curators, artists, critics and art lovers alike to experience a view of the contemporary art market available nowhere else.

“Our new monumental location will highlight SCOPE’s core mission of introducing international galleries alongside museum quality programming, collector tours, screenings, and special events. Anchoring SCOPE as New York’s destination fair, programming expands in partnership with local and international cultural organizations, featuring: film, music, installation and performance. “SCOPE New York will again highlight our lead role as creative R+D for a wider audience of taste makers who make art their business” says SCOPE President & Founder Alexis Hubshman.
