Alexis Hubshman is the founder and president of SCOPE Art Fair which originated in 2002 in New York. SCOPE originated with the purpose of introducing artists, curators, and leading edge galleries to new audiences internationally. The most significant emerging galleries, curators, and artist projects are invited by an elected committee whose members comprise of international representatives from the corresponding cities or regions. Thus, over seventy-five exhibitors contribute towards solo and thematic group shows which are presented alongside museum-quality programming, collector tours, screenings, and special events. Visitors are treated to a real-time international survey of the emerging contemporary art world.
Some of the highlights of the earlier events, such as the one in 2006, included an interesting concept called The Perpetual Art Machine, an award winning programme which presented over 600 videos from over 400 international artists and offered the visitor to become part of the curatorial process.
