February 20, 2007



Sneak Preview Thursday, February 22nd, 3pm-8pm
Daily Entry: 10am-8pm, Friday, February 23-Monday, February 26, 2007

The Scope Pavilion
Lincoln Center
Damrosch Park,
Corner of 62 Street and 10th Avenue

Scope hunts down that most endangered of species: the emerging artist. Both moving target and elusive chameleon, Scope’s 65 participants capture this exotic breed in their roving crosshairs. Challenging passive viewing with 25,000 square feet of open-range, Scope New York exposes visitors to a real-time survey of the contemporary art world available nowhere else.

Building on last year’s success, which broke all sales and attendance figures for an alternative art fair, Scope New York 2007 is proud to announce its new location: a 25,000 square-foot pavilion with a glass facade at New York’s most famous cultural icon, Lincoln Center. Situated in Lincoln Center’s Damrosch Park, at the corner of 62nd Street and 10th Avenue, Scope New York is just blocks from the Armory Show.

Scope New York returns for its sixth-straight year with its new location. Featuring galleries from four continents and 20 countries, including China, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Italy, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Germany, UK, Spain, and Canada, Scope New York 2007 is the most internationally diverse fair to date. Scope’s sixty-five international exhibitors will uphold its unique tradition of one-person and thematic group shows presented alongside museum-quality programming, collector tours, screenings, and special events. The fair opens daily at 10 AM.

Continuing its mandate to redefine what an art fair is, this year’s Scope New York will take advantage of its unique location with special projects by Scope exhibiting artists. Visitors to the fair will be embraced and initiated by roving performers, sound and video pieces interspersed throughout the fair. Nestled atop a snow blown “mountain,” viewers can seek sanctuary in a veritable hunting lodge, where art stars, icons and iconoclasts interview each other and warm to a crackling fire.
