The Program of SCOPE Miami Beach

This year, SCOPE Miami Beach will deepen its ties with the New Contemporary and Street Art by welcoming Hi-Fructose as guest curators to celebrated their 14th year in publication. The legendary publication will curate ambitious projects by artists such as Okuda, HOTTEA and AJ Fosik. The selection will be accompanied by exemplary VIP Programming, immersive Special Projects, compelling brand integrations and a dynamic array of Museum and Cultural Partners.

The fair will also present the series by the artist Hajar Benjida titled Young Thug as Paintings. The artist pays homage to the cultural capital of this influential musician and juxtaposes him with some of history’s most revered works of art. These works contextualize the importance of pop culture while simultaneously critiquing art historical norms by negotiating the canon of fine art.

The SCOPE Miami Beach will also present the regional winners of the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Artisan Series, which gives artists the opportunity to compete for a chance to exhibit at art gallery events across the U.S. and Canada. The Grand Prize Winner will be announced during the grand finale event in Miami co-hosted by BOMBAY SAPPHIRE and Artsy.

The VIP lounge will be curated by a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary platform Superchief, an independent artist-run space with permanent large-scale warehouse galleries in New York, Los Angeles and Miami.

SCOPE continues its dynamic VIP Programming with an exclusive series of talks and events in partnership with prestigious publications and institutions.
