“This feels like a fair for kids,” a middle-aged, blue-haired woman whispered to her mate as they perused the airy aisles of SCOPE New York
, Mar. 7-11, 2012. “The grown-up stuff is across the street!” Indeed, the 11th edition of SCOPE, which has set up shop in a white tent along the Hudson River two blocks north of the gargantuan Armory Show
, is full of bold colors, bizarre materials and kitschy design -- making up for what it lacks in sophistication and subtlety with a fresh, vibrant energy.
