The 16th edition of SCOPE Miami Beach returns to the sands of Ocean Drive and 8th Street. Featuring 125 International Exhibitors from 22 countries and 57 cities, SCOPE Miami Beach will welcome over 50,000 visitors over the course of 6 days. For the first time in 2016, Galerie Lachenmann Art from Germany will also participate with contemporary painting.
The works of two young international artists are shown: Zohar Fraiman, who was born in Israel, has been working for many years on the themes of Jewish tradition; the role of women, shaped by religion and tradition. Her works thematize, among other things, the legend of the figure of the dybbuk from Jewish folk beliefs, in which a prospective bride encounters the spirit of a former lover. Spooky and frightening moments flow into each other in her depictions with a romantic and beautiful picture of fateful union. Fraiman's style of painting is delicate and yet merciless in highlighting the themes to which she is interested.
The young Berlin artist Alexander Iskin revolutionizes the scene with his newly created art movement, the Interrealism. His most recent canvas works deal with the Big Bang in a colorful and abstract way in the sense of the origins of the world and thus deal with existential questions about human existence and confront the viewer mercilessly with coincidence, randomness and possible alternatives of our world or the world as we know them. The works of the 26 year-old Moscow-born artist will be shown for the first time in the USA.
