In an ode to the blurring of lines between artistic disciplines, Scope Miami and VH1 are collaborating on the VH1 Outdoor Lounge, highlighting emerging and undiscovered talent, including winners of Red Bull's Canvas Cooler Project, which challenged artists to turn wrapped mini-fridges into colorful creations. (December 5 through 9 at the Scope Pavilion, 110 NE 36th St., Miami. Admission is $20 general and $15 for students. Visit scope-art.com.)
The Seven fair brings in the best of New York's art scene, but five of the galleries featured this year were damaged during Hurricane Sandy (two severely). Seven wasn't about to let Mother Nature prevent it from constructing its collaborative studio in a new location on NW Second Avenue, though. With, yes, seven major works as the focal point of the fair, the rest of the pieces are chosen on the spot to create a cohesive whole.
"It's all very different aesthetics and different points of view," says organizer and P·P·O·W Gallery co-owner Wendy Olsoff. "It's always come out so good." (December 4 through 9 at 2200 NW Second Ave., Miami. Admission is free. Visit seven-miami.com.)
