Artist Eric Rieger, also known as HOTTEA whose installations have stunned the attendees of visitors to our exhibitions at the Long Beach Museum of Art and the Lancaster Museum of Art and History, grabbed the title of one of 2018’s best art installations by My Modern Met. His installation in the entrance of the Scope Art Fair in Miami this past December was vast and jaw-dropping.
He shared his inspiration for the installation with the publication, “Even though we may take things for granted, once they are gone we wish we would have acted differently. Our sun, rain, wind, plants, animals, people, everything could disappear in seconds and when they do it is our memory of them that will carry on assuming there is something beyond our existence here on earth. What I hope people took away from my installation was not only a color experience they will not forget but also a reminder of how much a singular moment can mean.”

Thank you to everyone that came through our booth with SCOPE this past week in Miami during Art Basel. Was so nice to reconnect with past patrons and to meet so many new fans of our space and program.
A big round of applause goes out to the entire staff of SCOPE on another stellar year on Miami Beach. Many thanks as well to all our exhibiting artists for delivering such beautiful and meaningful works.
Kudos are due to both James Bullough and Michael Reeder who SOLD OUT their solo shows at our booth during the fair. We can not wait until our solo shows with both incredible talents here in LA in 2018/2019. More details on those two highly anticipated exhibitions shared soon.
Excited to share that we placed over 70 original works of art this past week in Miami, a great many to new patrons. A simply incredible week to say the least and we can not thank you all enough for your support.
Just wait until you see what we have in store for 2018. Have a safe and happy holiday season everyone!
