Beau Stanton‘s exhibition and animated installation, “Message in a Bottle,” was presented by the Quattlebaum Foretich Gallery curated by Lori Zimmer at SCOPE Miami Beach. Viewers were “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.”
After wandering through the endless booths containing world class up-and-coming artists’ work, the installation for “Message in a Bottle” stood before us. Photographer Najee Forbes and I were greeted by a booth where the walls were vertically paneled with worn old-looking wood. The ship chandlery thing made sense now. The wood was adorned with shelves holding various artistic messages within different kinds of bottles and jars. They were all interpretations by a collection of artists of their version of a message in a bottle.
Game Show is the current exhibition at Florida International University’s – College of Architecture + The Arts’ new Miami Beach Urban Studios (MBUS) where games serve as metaphors for human interactions and well, just the absurdities of life itself.
Hit & Run, opening this Thursday, August 9th at Gregg Shienbaum Gallery in Wynwood, is a retrospective of AholSniffsGlue’s work.
The exhibition features pieces that date back to and before his official debut at Butter Gallery two years ago and includes his memorable characters and infamous eyeballs along with more recent works, some never seen before.
