Once Upon a Time Down There
Mixed media, site-specific installation
Curator: Lori Zimmer

Composed of sculpture, political propaganda and historic artifacts, Nyugen Smith’s site specific installation is a fictional museum documenting the colonization of Africa and the West Indies. As told through several bodies of work that span the artist’s career, these salvaged boats, healing elixirs, homemade maps and books, all contribute to the historical contextualization of an imaginary location, where real events have taken place.

Ron English brings his unique brand of “subvertising” to SCOPE Miami Beach with an installation exploring the many layers of advertising as wish fulfillment and thought control. Using his signature technique of stretching truth and taste just beyond acceptable limits, English forces us to confront the loaded impact of our littered visual landscape.

Message in a Bottle at Scope Art Show Miami

December 2, 2013 — by lorizimmer

Opening December 2nd, 2013 at SCOPE Art Show Miami, Message in a Bottle explores the romantic history of blindly throwing messages to sea, leaving it to the hands of fate to deliver them to their intended recipient. Visitors are invited into a maritime ship chandlery, where contemporary artists have created their own message for the ages, captured inside bottles and waiting to be unlocked by their new owners. Curated by Art Nerd New York’s Lori Zimmer, the exhibition features a spotlight on Brooklyn-based artist Beau Stanton, and will include a special animation that furthers the seafaring fantasy.
