Forest Fire, Forest File (Winter), 2013
Curator: Natalie Kates

Evoking the repose of nature as well as the frenetic energy of an endless RSS feed, Jason Urban’s Forest Fire, Forest File is composed of images that are objects and objects that are images. Using mundane, repetitive objects such as cardboard file boxes, Urban employs printmaking techniques to create physical, tactile “screensavers” that explore the disparate relationship of analog to digital, real to virtual.

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. It is set to air on VH1 from November 11 to December 1. Brantley is a Chicago native whose work employs a variety of surfaces and media including wood, spray paint, coffee and tea. 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.

The Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation booth at SCOPE will feature a group exhibition of artists that have been nominated for a CIFO Grant by the foundation’s Honorary Advisory Committee of internationally recognized curators, artists and art professionals. A fundraising initiative that will benefit both artists and CIFO’s Endowment Fund, this exhibition is designed to garner more exposure for these contemporary artists from Latin America, while also raising funds to further the mission of the foundation. All of the works included in the exhibition have been produced exclusively by CIFO.

The Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation is dedicated to supporting and promoting contemporary artists from Latin America. CIFO fosters cultural understanding and educational exchange through three primary initiatives: a Grants and Commissions Program for emerging and mid-career visual artists from Latin America; an exhibitions program showcasing work by Latin American artists and international contemporary art from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection at the CIFO Art Space; and foundation-initiated support for other arts and culture projects.

This year, BucketFeet and SCOPE are teaming up for the inaugural #MadeToStandOut Challenge—wherein 50 exhibiting SCOPE artists will compete for a chance to become a BucketFeet shoe designer. Prior to the SCOPE show, participating artists will receive a single blank shoe upon which they can unleash their creativity. Nothing is off limits, artists are encouraged to design anything from the radical and unexpected to the classic and effortlessly cool.

The finished pieces will be displayed at SCOPE New York 2014 in March and revealed to the public on social media, and a panel of judges will vote to decide the next BucketFeet artist. Combining art, fashion, and an unrelenting thirst for exploration, #MadeToStandOut celebrates the diversity of SCOPE artists’ perspectives, allowing audiences to see what happens when each participant is confined to the same white canvas. The winning artist’s design will receive a BucketFeet shoe contract and a special showcase at SCOPE Miami Beach 2014.

Designed by painters, graffiti writers, and illustrators from all over the world, BucketFeet shoes are walking works of art. The brand has collaborated with 65 emerging artists in 19 countries, effectively producing a fleet of sneakers as diverse as the artists who designed them. All artists receive royalties for each shoe sold and a global platform to showcase their work.
