Gitana Rosa Gallery is thrilled to announce our first exhibition with Scope Art Fair in Miami Beach for Miami Art Week. Along with our artists Joel Blenz and Alice Mizrachi we will be presenting new multi-media works located at Booth F039.
SCOPE Miami Beach opens on Tuesday, November 29th, with the Platinum First View and VIP + Press Preview and will run November 29 – December 4, 2022.
Following the record-breaking success of SCOPE’s 20th anniversary in Miami Beach, the show returns for its next edition on the iconic sands of South Beach. This critically-acclaimed show will host 130 galleries and a focused schedule of experiential programming presented by exclusive sponsors and partners, featuring morning wellness, panel discussions, performances, and evening events.
With over 85 art shows spanning more than 20 years, SCOPE Art Show in Miami, New York, and Basel, Switzerland is celebrated as the premier showcase for international emerging contemporary art and multi-disciplinary creative programming. Renowned for its uncanny ability to forecast new visual trends that are embraced globally, SCOPE has garnered extensive critical acclaim with cumulative sales of billions and attendance of millions. The New Contemporary, its flagship program is dedicated to experimental multidisciplinary activations. Located in the expanded atrium, this space features large-scale installations, panel discussions, music, and performances throughout the day.
About Joel Blenz aka TRAP IF
Graffiti writer and fine artist Joel Blenz aka TRAP IF will be showcasing a series of mixed media paintings. A native of Queens, New York, Blenz is a painter working in conversation with textured surfaces, blending and writing as it is defined in the context of graffiti. His current mixed media work has found its form and language through a transitional period; one where Blenz’ work evolved from primarily a street based practice into a studio practice. The studio as a meditative site has emerged as a counterpoint to the adrenaline of street based art making, offering a context for the reflection and evolution of a painting style developed over multiple decades of work as a graffiti artist.
About Alice Mizrachi
Artist and muralist Alice Mizrachi is one of the artists featured at this live event. Alice will showcase limited edition on paperworks available, mixed media, and sculpture. Alice Mizrachi is a New York based interdisciplinary artist and educator working in the mediums of painting, murals and installation. Her work explores the interconnectedness of individuals and community through the dual lens of compassion and empathy. Through figurative work that reinforces both personal and community-oriented identity, Alice aims to inspire creative expression and a sense of shared humanity through art.
Founded in 2006 by Vanessa Liberati, Gitana Rosa represents contemporary art by emerging and established artists encouraging social, political and environmental discourse. From its inception, Gitana Rosa has integrated those values in the gallery’s programming through the use of post-consumer recycled paper and soy-based inks for marketing collateral, wind power and energy-efficient LED lighting, and the creative reuse of upcycled building materials and furnishings. Vanessa Liberati also donates a portion of sales to organizations such as One Percent for the Planet, The Nature Conservancy, World Wildlife Fund, and the Human Impacts Institute.
After producing countless widely-praised exhibitions in the gallery’s spaces in Brooklyn, Chelsea, and Piermont, NY, we are now based in Miami, FL. Continuing our mission to facilitate a meaningful interaction between artists and communities, the gallery acts as a hub for artist profiles and interviews, as well as online exhibitions and the sale of limited editions and original works.
The Gitana Rosa team’s current program encompasses curated events, selected art fairs and provides art advisory services. We connect with an audience that expands far beyond the walls of a single gallery and will continue to provide space to stimulate dialogue, promote sustainable methods of living, and inspire positive ideas.
