Without a doubt, this is the most internationally recognized satellite fair. It was founded ten years ago by art-world renegade Alexis Hubshman and is now helmed by director Mollie White. Four editions of Scope are held throughout the year in New York City; Basel, Switzerland; the Hamptons; London; and Miami. Seventy-five international galleries will serve as the foundation for the tenth anniversary of Scope Miami, with special projects such as "Thatness and Thereness," curated by Miami-based a.m.f. projects cofounder Daria Brit Shapiro. Expect mind-bending sculptures (such as Karyn Olivier's Doubleslide); provocative video projects (such as Monika Bravo's The Vortex); and Miami's favorite fashion designer, Karelle Levy, with her sixth Quickie Couture operation. Situated just across the way from Art Miami in midtown, it's hard to miss the massive white pavilion, which at first glance looks like a monumental bounce house.
