International Contemporary Art Fair in East Hampton Summer Home

Returning for its fourth year to the East End, SCOPE Hamptons will transform the 25,000 square-foot East Hampton Studios into a world-class art fair and destination-location coinciding with the 15th Annual Watermill Center Summer Benefit. SCOPE is a major contributor to the Hamptons most celebrated weekend of art. Centrally located and inches from seasoned and emerging collectors’ homes, East Hamptons Studio is SCOPE’s home away from home for the New York and international art enthusiast.

With 40 international established and emerging contemporary galleries, SCOPE will present a full schedule of special events, performances and screenings, alongside museum-quality programming, creating what has become “The Hamptons Weekend of Art.”

Introducing artists, curators, and cutting-edge galleries to new audiences internationally has made SCOPE the most comprehensive destination for the emerging art world available anywhere. With fairs in Miami, Basel, New York, London and the Hamptons, SCOPE is proud to be an influential presence in the expanding global art market.

Benefiting from SCOPE’s “Art Fair as Resource” mandate, the SCOPE Foundation’s silent auction features seasoned collectors Melva Bucksbaum, Bonnie Clearwater, Bob Colacello, Beth Rudin DeWoody, Eileen and Richard Ekstract, John Friedman, Raymond Learsy, Arnold Lehman, Kim Levin, Adam Lindemann, Enrique Norten, Dennis Oppenheim, Lowell Pettit, Nancy Seltzer, Richard Stewart, Terrie Sultan, Rob Teeters, Jed Walentas, Rick Wester and others, donating an hour of their time to mentor emerging collectors. Young collectors and members at MoMA, Whitney, The New Museum, The Parrish Museum, Guild Hall, and Core Club, as well as fashion, music and design trendsetters will have the opportunity to mingle, have a cocktail, and bid on a collector of their choice. The private hour may be redeemed within one year of the auction, and the setting is to be determined by the collector and the bidder; a tete a tete at the collector’s favorite coffee shop, touring a museum or walking through an art fair.
