SCOPE Miami December 3-7 2008 – Miami’s original emerging contemporary art fair, returns for its seventh year to Miami this December. Expanded in size and global in reach, SCOPE will host 88 exhibitors from 22 countries in a new 60,000 square foot pavilion. SCOPE’s new location is centrally located in the Wynwood Art District, convenient to the Rubell Family Collection, the Margulies Collection, as well as Miami’s top galleries.

SCOPE Art Fair Miami 08 and ART ASIA are proud to announce that they have joined forces to create a dynamic partnership. By doing so, both fairs increase audience attendance, exposure to new collectors, curators and press while expanding their museum quality programming and lecture series. The two fairs will continue to maintain their unique identities with separate pavilions presenting a combined 135 exhibitors from over 36 countries. SCOPE looks forward to a similar relationship with ART ASIA when it makes its debut in Basel, Switzerland on June 10th, 2009.

SCOPE FOUNDATION – SCOPE’s continued mission is to turn viewers into users. SCOPE International Art Fair is proud to announce the launch of the SCOPE FOUNDATION, whose mandate is to help emerging contemporary artists through grants, awards, and acquisitions. SCOPE is dedicated to not only supporting the international emerging artist community, but local schools and not-for-profit arts institutions.

In early 2007, the SCOPE FOUNDATION was launched as a non-profit 501(c)(3) to more fully fund various programs, promote awareness outside the marketplace and academia, and involve the communities it visits.
