The best of SCOPE, contemporary art fair

SCOPE: a space for emerging contemporary art

Alexis Hubshman, an architecture specialist and founder of SCOPE, told Forbes magazine that his project emerged as an event that sought to “create art events that were more intimate, sexy and exciting. (…) we did performance before the performance in art was cool.” An opportunity for emerging artists to do things they could not have done anywhere else.
