Yellow Peril Gallery is pleased to present “Model Minority” at SCOPE Miami Beach 2013, featuring 10 artists whose body of work is not marginalized by society’s definitions of success, beauty and power. This is the Providence-based contemporary art gallery’s debut as one of 15 galleries selected by a panel of independent curators to join SCOPE’s Breeder Program, which introduces the most advanced cutting-edge galleries to the contemporary market for the first time.
“Fostering critical dialogue about contemporary art and its impact on society has been integral to the success of Yellow Peril since day one,” notes Vanphouthon Souvannasane, Director. “At SCOPE Miami Beach, we aspire to extend the reach of our artists to new audiences, collectors, curators and critics. We are honored to be a part of the most dynamic and riveting week in the global contemporary art calendar.”
At its core, “Model Minority” refers to a minority group (whether ethnic, racial or religious) in certain countries whose members are most often perceived to achieve a higher degree of success than the population average. Typically, this success is measured in income, education, and related factors such as low crime rate and high family stability.
“Our mission with “Model Minority” is to exhibit provocative and visually arresting artwork that challenges our pre-conceived notions about the roles of art and artists in the general global conversation,” says Robert P. Stack, Curator. “Not only are our featured artists exceptionally talented, they are ahead of the curve with their vision and execution – they have no qualms about questioning the status quo and engaging with audiences in innovative and original ways.”
Featured artists at “Model Minority” include: Kathryn Parker Almanas, Caleb Cain Marcus, Naomi Campbell, Jamey Morrill, Rodrigo Nava, Hao Ni, Raquel Paiewonsky, Anne Morgan Spalter, Quintín Rivera Toro and Diego Rodriguez-Warner.
SCOPE Miami Beach opens on Monday, December 2, with its exclusive Platinum VIP Gala, continuing Tuesday, December 3, to welcome VIPs and Press at its First View benefit, and will open to the general public December 4 – 8, 2013. Yellow Peril Gallery will host “Model Minority” in Booth G 09.
