Art Fairs in Miami 7.-12.

Challenging passive viewing, Scope Miami continues to redefine what an art fair is with an artist-designed 40,000 square-foot pavilion, located in Roberto Clemente Park, the heart of Miami’s Wynwood Art District.

Just blocks from the Rubell Family Art Collection, the Margulies Collection, and Miami’s leading galleries, Scope Miami’s 90 international exhibitors will uphold Scope’s unique tradition of one person and thematic group shows presented alongside museum-quality programming, collector tours, screenings and special events.

Scope programming will also be featured throughout Miami, including the Townhouse Hotel. Perfectly located in South Beach, and around the corner from ArtBasel/Miami, the TownHouse will be the networking-hub and daily host for VIPs, as well as a place to relax, meet, and travel to Scope Miami’s new monumental site in the Wynwood Art District. Scope’s continued mission is to turn viewers into users. Founded in 2002, Scope gives a view of the contemporary art world available nowhere else. Scope international art fairs present up-and-coming dealers, curators, and artists, alongside museum quality programming.
