Miami, FL – In an era where being from just “the City” doesn’t cut it, Brooklyn, New York has quickly become the newest epicenter for emerging arts and culture for not only the five boroughs but rather for the global audience. And as the international art world descends on Miami for Art Basel Miami Beach, the best of what Brooklyn has to offer will collectively congregate in the heart of the Miami Design District.


Ad Hoc Art brings you over 40 artists ranging from all mediums and styles that best represent the aesthetics and vision of the Brooklyn art scene. This comprehensive showcase will not only emphasize the visionary works of today’s biggest street artists such as The London Police, Lady Pink, Poster Boy and Skewville, but will highlight established contemporary artists such as Scott Draves, whose works in new media has been at the forefront of both art and technology. BKMIA is also proud to debut Mario Brothers, the latest addition to the Brooklyn street iconoclast whose mixed media collages can be seen on such high-profile publications as V Magazine and Interview.
