ART + MUSIC + BEACH
Attendees won’t want to miss the Official VH1 + SCOPE Party* on December 6 featuring a performance by Tegan and Sara with more music by DJ Cassidy. Tegan and Sara are a sister-duo whose journey from indie-rock darlings to bonafide pop stars has gained the identical twins a global following. DJ Cassidy is a world-renowned deejay, producer and tastemaker in music, fashion, media and nightlife.
* Access to party is invite-only but the public is welcome to enjoy the live performances from Lummus Park.
Celebrate the ultimate fusion of art and music as VH1 and SCOPE team up to host ART + MUSIC + BEACH at SCOPE‘s new location in Miami Beach!
For the second year in a row, SCOPE – the preeminent launching pad for emerging contemporary art – continues its collaboration with VH1, which through its own You Oughta Know initiative has helped launch some of music’s hottest artists. The VH1 Indoor Lounge within the SCOPE pavilion will expose SCOPE Miami attendees to a series of activations designed to celebrate the crossover between art and music, and will be open to all for the duration of the event – December 3-8, 2013.
This year, VH1 and SCOPE have picked one visual artist, Hebru Brantley, and one musical artist, Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean, to be featured in an on-air profile in which the two explore the symbiotic relationship between art, music and pop culture.
Brantley is a Chicago native whose work employs a variety of surfaces and media including wood, spray paint and tea, and draws influence from pop-culture reference points including comic-book heroes, Japanese anime and the bold aesthetics of street-art pioneers Jean-Michel Basquiat, KAWS and Keith Haring.
Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean – an acclaimed hip-hop/R&B producer and rapper who’s worked with Jay Z, Beyonce, DMX, Drake and more – is an avid collector of Brantley’s work.
