In collaboration with the Galleries Association of Korea and sponsored by the Korea Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, SCOPE Miami Beach 2014 is honored to present FEATURE Korea. This curated section offers a glimpse at the current art trends in Korea and shines new light on the country's contemporary cultural practice. Fifteen Korean galleries will present artists from one of the leading centers of Asian contemporary art, promoting a cultural exchange between Miami and Korea.

Celebrating artwork that bends, blends and transcends genre, Juxtapoz Magazine will curate a selection of SCOPE galleries as a highlight of FEATURE. Juxtapoz Presents galleries embody the New Contemporary that is SCOPE's hallmark and add a singular dynamism to the Miami Beach 2014 show.

Juxtapoz has invited Kimou "Grotesk" Meyer to design and create an interactive installation entitled the "Juxtapoz Newsstand." Inspired by classic newsstands of Brooklyn, New York, Juxtapoz Newsstand is based on an iconic cover of Juxtapoz Magazine designed by Grotesk in 2009, an illustration that was recently shown in conjunction with Juxtapoz's special projects during their 20th Anniversary in 2014. Juxtapoz Newsstand will feature special artist-made goods, magazines, as well as the release of their newest book title, Juxtapoz Hyperrealism.

Juxtapoz will also release a special edition SCOPE newspaper featuring coverage of Juxtapoz Presents at the Miami Beach 2014 show.

Since 2011 Red Bull Curates: The Canvas Cooler Project has paired hand-picked artists with venue owners of the hottest local bars, lounges and restaurants across the U.S., presenting them with a one-day challenge to transform a blank canvas wrapped cooler into an inspired functional work of art. The finished pieces are exhibited in a one-night only public gallery showcase in which a panel of curatorial judges vote to send two artists from each city to SCOPE Miami Beach. The coolers are then displayed at their designated venues across each city for public viewing.
