SCOPE London scheduled to take place this coming October, announced Wednesday that the fair would be postponed until 2012. In response to the recent riots that swept neighborhoods of Great Britain, SCOPE and their advisory body of galleries, community heads, and global collectors, have decided this year would not be the time to re-launch the fair. SCOPE Show  Director, Mollie White explains, “the current climate of social unrest, and poor economic conditions, did not create for the sure environment to re-launch this year’s edition of the fair. It is essential to SCOPE that its exhibitors are given a confident and rich platform, and we therefore look forward to hosting the fair next year, which we feel will be an especially dynamic time, given the international presence of the Olympics and respective communities.

SCOPE now looks to celebrate its ninth year in Miami, November 30- December 4, where it will host 85 international exhibitors presenting solo, and thematic group shows, alongside museum quality programming, including the debut of innovative performance, film, curatorial projects and site-specific installation. As the destination for cutting-edge contemporary art, SCOPE continues to develop its lead role as creative R+D for a wider audience of taste makes. Come celebrate SCOPE Miami!
