Scope New York 2016

Following on the heels of an incredible showing in SCOPE Miami, the collective displays its work in SCOPE New York, ushering in an art-filled spring on March 3-6. The fair venue is the Metropolitan West Pavilion on 46th street, right in the heart of downtown Manhattan. Just a stones throw away from Times Square, and situated across from the Armory show, SCOPE New York continues their ongoing mission of highlighting emerging and established talents from all corners of the globe. Amid a group of 60+ galleries, island6 presents an eclectic, special series of works made exclusively for the fair.

To give a more inside gist of things though- Liu Dao (the Chinese translation for island6) is a collective comprised of about fifteen people (some occasionally come and go as artists so often do). Members of this group are mostly Chinese but there have also been plenty of western painters, curators, art directors and technicians. [...Read more ↓ ]
