With thousands of guests pouring in throughout the week, exhibitors reported multiple acquisitions by notable collections, including Directed Art Modern who praised, “There are few platforms such as SCOPE Art Show willing to endorse the gallery, artist, and curator. SCOPE gave Directed Art Modern the freedom and the capacity to actualize six-figure sales and place work in museum and private collections.”

Also reporting strong sales: ARTE GLOBALE, who placed 13 artworks by Yener Torun, Fort Works Art, who exhibited a solo show of legendary photographer Kate Simon, Rutger Brandt, The Chemistry Gallery, who sold 10 pieces by Michal Cimala, Richard Beavers Gallery, Haven Gallery, selling 16 pieces, Michele Mariaud, who made “fantastic contacts with collectors and interior designers,” andContemporary Art Projects USA, who successfully sold pieces by Richard Cardenas, Luis Kaiulani, and Daniel Daledonne. Gallery Director Tata Fernandez exclaims, “It was a great experience, very well organized fair as well attended by top collectors.”

Also reporting strong sales was New Contemporary exhibitor Chic Evolution in Art who placed 3 larger than life Lucio Carvalho pieces. “It was definitely a great experience to share the artistic talent of Lucio Carvalho during SCOPE 2019…buyers and critics cannot get enough.”

Katya Leibholz from art concierge service Heart for Art praises the exhibitor selection, “We loved the diversity and talent in artists represented, and many of our clients discovered galleries they had never heard of before. These relationships have continued past the fair, and we are now working with people we only met at SCOPE! “
