A part of SCOPE Art Shows that take place in Basel and Miami Beach, the fair brings together galleries from around the world, which focus on the emerging contemporary art done in various media. Deepening its ties with the Street Art and New Contemporary Genres, SCOPE Art Shows are now partnering with Berlin’s acclaimed URBAN NATION Museum for Urban Contemporary Art. Over the years, SCOPE has been an incubator of the genre, consistently promoting and supporting artists working in the field. Operating under the leitmotif Connect. Create.

Together, these important art institutions aim to highlight the aesthetical value of the genre, but most importantly, its critical contribution to both global politics and local community engagement.
