Already known as a platform for discovery, SCOPE prides itself on exhibiting a wide range of contemporary artists. But this year, for the 19th edition of SCOPE Miami Beach opening December 3rd, the fair is not only highlighting innovation within the artistic community, but is also changing the entire art fair model with its new OASIS lounge.
“OASIS is an organic evolution of what SCOPE has always done,” said Alexis Hubshman, founder and president of SCOPE. “When we began, we were a scrappy hotel fair and had no idea where the market would go or what it would look like. Here we are nearly 20 years later with the same mission as when we began—to present a view of the contemporary art world available nowhere else. OASIS is our first step towards a stand-alone New Contemporary project that will marry our fair expertise with this new experiential model.”
Located in SCOPE’s expanded atrium, OASIS will feature daily experiential multidisciplinary programming, including panels discussing the New Contemporary, live painting, interactive installations, and performance artists. After dark, OASIS will transform into a multi-day nightlife experience featuring world-class talent.
