Scoop with second venue
03 May. 2013
Scoop London is getting twice as largeInternational fashion and art show Scoop, London now has an additional venue. Previously occupying only the Saatchi Gallery, Scoop will now also use the Philips Gallery. The new venue is virtually round the corner in Howick Place, Victoria and approximately one mile away from the Saatchi Gallery. The 2011 launched show, has now nearly doubled size compared to the five previous editions. The number of exhibitors has increased up from 250 to more than 400.
‘Securing the Phillips Gallery really was a coup. With demand far outstripping available space, we needed Scoop to grow but weren’t prepared to water down the art and fashion mix that makes our Saatchi Gallery shows so vibrant – so any extra venue had to be very special indeed; it had to have the same panache and quality of light, which is why this move’s been a year in the making,’ enthuses show founder Karen Radley. ‘And the Phillips Gallery has all that and more besides. It really is a match made in Heaven.’
The July 2013 edition of Scoop will take place at the Saatchi Gallery and Phillips Gallery from 21-23 July 2013. Both venues will be presenting a mix of established and emerging contemporary fashion designers alongside a host of new names in contemporary painting, sculpture and installation.
