SCOPE’s flagship fair will commemorate its 15th anniversary in a new location: across from The Armory Show at Metropolitan Pavilion West. Dutch galleries on SCOPE 2015 will also be present: Andenken Gallery, Kallenbach Gallery, Mini Galerie and Ronen Art Gallery.
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. SCOPE New York’s open-plan design eschews the cookiecutter 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 encompass the entire show. Alongside this new exhibition model, SCOPE New York will host a series of events for Platinum and VIP Cardholders, including private performances, exclusive parties, brunches and cocktail events. These events will welcome our most influential and supportive patrons, celebrating 15 years of SCOPE’s pioneering programming.

Ronen Art Gallery’s mission consists on showcasing a select group of young and emerging artists, offering them a “travel wheel “ to expose their Artworks. Tightening the relationships between local artists and international venues. Ronen Art Gallery’s concept is to meet their customers within the international Art shows. Traveling with their Art pieces, inviting the artists to join and help out at the stand during the exhibition and making sure that the prices are affordable for the public to purchase and to take home.
Mini Gallery sends three artists to SCOPE New York:
Dutch artist Boris Tellegen, better known by his pseudonym Delta, has been one of the linchpins of the urban art movement since the early 1980s. The artist’s aesthetic demonstrates his fascination with technical precision and his obsession with complex logic.
Jeroen Erosie, the bright and playful pieces reveal a little of Heeman’s background through his use of spray-paint and latex, shapes loosely based on letters and techniques going back to his days as an illustrator.
Graphic Surgery, this artist duo freely moves from paintings, to murals, videos and installations while maintaining their systematic aesthetics of diagonal lines, geometric planes and a mostly black and white non-colour scheme.
SCOPE New York opens on Friday, March 6 with the Platinum Preview and First View benefit, and will run March 7 – 8, 2015.
