Intent on challenging passive viewing, Scope ushers in 2006 with 30,000 square feet of organic exhibition space, specifically designed to open up the grid typical to all art fairs of the past. 80 galleries will uphold Scopes unique tradition of one-person and thematic group shows, while spontaneous auto-curations and mobile exhibitions are synched and linked to the power of broadcast.

MoMA, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Studio Museum in Harlem, and New Museum of Contemporary Art join Scope curators for the Curators Choice Reception, Friday, 6-9pm, March 10, 2006. Curatorial projects include:
Winner Take All Under the stewardship of David Hunt and Franklin Sirmans, a consortium of independent curators will pass the curatorial baton, only to square off moments later in a bare-knuckle showdown. The anchorman becomes the lead-off man becomes the man who knew too much. Rolodexes are purged as relationship-arbitrage witnesses heavy trading.
The Perpetual Art Machine An interactive multimedia spectacle hosting over 100 progressive video, new media and internet artists presented by Lee Wells and The New Museums Rhizome.org. www.perpetualartmachine.com
free103point9 Transmission Artists expand the wireless spectrum. Broadcasting daily.

Enjoy our grassy hilltop lounge. Shuttle service daily. Great food. Just blocks from The Armory Show. Scopes first New York booth fair will be open daily from 11 am to 8 pm. Admission is $10.

Scopes continued mission is to turn viewers into users. Founded in 2002, Scope gives a view of the contemporary art world that is not available anywhere else. Scope international fairs present up-and-coming dealers, curators, and artists, alongside museum quality programming. www.scope-art.com
