About SCOPE Miami:
SCOPE Miami ran December 4 – December 9, 2012 featuring the best and brightest across multiple creative industries, including fashion, film, music and performance. With over a decade of critically acclaimed art shows and non-profit initiatives that extend beyond the ordinary in Contemporary art, design, music and fashion, SCOPE Art Shows have garnered critical acclaim with sales exceeding $300 million and attendance of over 500,000 visitors.
At the entrance to SCOPE was the installation by Simon Bilodeau titled Le Monde est un zombie. Mirrors were a theme at Miami art fairs, but this installation took reflectiveness to another level.

The idea behind this installation by Troy Abbott at Robert Fontaine Gallery is that these delicate creatures seem natural… until closer inspection reveals they are not organic at all. To the left, work by the British artist Nick Gentry also explores multi-media, but in the form of human identity.
Kathy Kissik’s assemblage work, shown at SCOPE with Robert Fontaine Gallery, draws on the resourcefulness of Bauhaus construction, utilizing rulers, reclaimed wire, found objects and more.
