The best of SCOPE, contemporary art fair

SCOPE: a space for emerging contemporary art

Have you ever heard about SCOPE? Overloaded objects, children in distress, Donald Trump having sex with Mexican women, sculptures that give the appearance of being real people… All that is what was lived at SCOPE, one of the most important contemporary art fairs in the world.

15 years have passed since the first issue of SCOPE, one of the largest contemporary art events in the world: it gathers around 1.2 million visitors.

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.

Sculpture, painting and installations are some of the things that were found in the great exhibition that was presented in New York last week; the themes are varied, but they share the core idea of ​​the festival: to promote emerging projects in contemporary art.
