SCOPE Miami Beach 2018: Programming

THE NEW CONTEMPORARY WITH GUEST CURATORS HI-FRUCTOSE

SCOPE Miami Beach deepens its ties with the New Contemporary and Street Art genres by celebrating HI-FRUCTOSE’s 14th year in publication. The publication will be transforming the SCOPE tent with ambitious projects curated by the legendary publication, featuring artists Okuda, HOTTEA, and AJ Fosik alongside exemplary VIP Programming, immersive Special Projects, compelling brand integrations and a dynamic array of Museum and Cultural Partners.

Complementing these museum quality installations, SCOPE is enlisting founding New Contemporary member Andrew Hosner to assemble a focused Exhibitor Program of the most influential galleries in this genre.

YOUNG THUG AS PAINTINGS

Netherlands-based artist Hajar Benjida’s project “Young Thug as Paintings” pays homage to the cultural capital of Jeffery Lamar Williams, better known as Young Thug, one of the most influential musical artists of this generation by juxtaposing him with some of history's most revered works of art. Originally a school assignment that soon became a viral sensation thanks to Instagram, the comparison of parallel imagery resonates not only with his musical fans, but with art lovers alike. In partnership with Young Thug and Hajar Benjida, SCOPE is happy to present an iteration of this memetic. Layered prints, literally and conceptually, work to contextualize the importance of pop culture while simultaneously critiquing art historical norms by negotiating the canon of fine art. Supported by Young Stoner Life Records and 300 Entertainment, with production by KRISTIANKIRK.

PANEL DISCUSSIONS

Amidst praise from collectors, SCOPE will continue its dynamic VIP Programming with an exclusive series of talks and events in partnership with prestigious publications and institutions.
