Enough About You
Curator: TRIAD + Lillith Performance Studio + The SCOPE Foundation

Einat Amir's performance Enough About You is inspired by how our possibilities to socialize have been simplified and altered dramatically due to the numerous meeting possibilities offered by contemporary media. We can read stranger's diaries and view their family albums long before we have closer contact. We have opportunity to form an opinion in advance, to accept or reject before actually meeting.

This work creates a monitored lab where one can observe "authentic" encounters between two strangers who are controlled and guided by an experimental conversation structure created specifically for this piece. The observer also participates, and is monitored and controlled.

Once Upon a Time Down There
Mixed media, site-specific installation
Curator: Lori Zimmer

Composed of sculpture, political propaganda and historic artifacts, Nyugen Smith’s site specific installation is a fictional museum documenting the colonization of Africa and the West Indies. As told through several bodies of work that span the artist’s career, these salvaged boats, healing elixirs, homemade maps and books, all contribute to the historical contextualization of an imaginary location, where real events have taken place.

Maxikiosco, Buenos Aires
Steel, colored plastic, rivets, paint, lights
Curator: Natalie Kates

Maxikiosco is the 2nd piece in Fruin's celebrated ICON series. Composed from hundreds of plexi offcuts, this work celebrates the vibrancy of the corner stores of Argentina. Like New York's Watertower and Los Angeles' Billboard, these works transform signature architectural shapes into kaleidoscopes of color that project a cities identity to the viewer. The sculpture will be a beacon of light illuminated by the sun during the day and computer controlled halogens by night.

Curated: Lori Zimmer

Message in a Bottle explores the romantic history of blindly throwing messages to sea, leaving it to the hands of fate to deliver them to their intended recipient. Visitors are invited into a maritime ship chandlery, where contemporary artists have created their own message for the ages, captured inside bottles and waiting to be unlocked by their new owners. A special animation by Beau Stanton will further the seafaring fantasy.

No Place
Mixed Media Installation
Courtesy of DUMBO Arts Festival

Winner of the DUMBO Arts Festival 2013 SCOPE Prize, Saya Woolfalk’s mixed media installation, No Place, investigates configurations of biology, sociality, race, class, sexuality, and an environment designed as reflection on human life and its future. With its name derived from the English word, “topia,” coined by Thomas More from the Greek “no” (ou) and “place” (topos), Saya Woolfalk’s fictional “No Place” is composed of handmade, costumed mannequins from hybrid cultural origin, and a 30 minute video, The Ethnography of No Place, a collaboration with anthropologist and filmmaker Rachel Lears.

Hand-screened posters, installation variable
Curator: Lori Zimmer

Ron English brings his unique brand of "subvertising" to SCOPE Miami Beach with an installation exploring the many layers of advertising as wish fulfillment and thought control. Using his signature technique of stretching truth and taste just beyond acceptable limits, English forces us to confront the loaded impact of our littered visual landscape.

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. This year, SCOPE and VH1 are teaming up to host ART + MUSIC + BEACH to celebrate the convergence of the music and art worlds in a series of curatorial on-air, online and on-site collaborations at SCOPE's new location in the heart of South Beach, Miami. The VH1 Indoor Lounge within the SCOPE pavilion will expose SCOPE Miami Beach 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 draws influence from a variety of pop-culture influences 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.
