SCOPE is the largest and most global art fair in the world featuring emerging contemporary art with numerous markets worldwide. SCOPE’s goal and passion is to present the most innovative galleries, artists and curators while networking them with patrons through a unique program of solo and thematic group shows presented alongside museum-quality exhibitions, collector tours, screenings, and special events. In over thirty-five fairs spanning the past ten years, SCOPE has solidified its position as the premier showcase for international emerging contemporary art.

Artists Wanted was created by two Brooklyn based artists, Jason Goodman and William Etundi Jr. Their first hand experience in the art world was the inspiration for creating this bold new platform for finding burgeoning talent and exposing it to the world. After combining their art world connections, promotional expertise and aesthetic sensibility, Goodman and Etundi launched Artists Wanted with the mission of making the discovery of new artists more welcoming, dynamic and expansive.
