November 27, 2020 - December 6, 2020
Design Miami/ returns to its first-ever home in the Miami Design District for its 16th edition—The Moore Building. Featuring a new curated selling exhibition concept entitled Design Miami/Podium, the fair has been spread across ten days and is accompanied by its debut online program in alignment with COVID-19 health and safety protocols. The 2020 iteration follows Curatorial Director Aric Chen’s concept “America(s),” which explores the multiple histories, narratives, and interpretations of design surrounding the theme.
The fair welcomes exhibitors across three sectors, including over 30 in Design Miami/Podium, 11 in Galleries, and three special Curios, which includes presentations by Miami-based Carbonell Design Studio, Kingston, Jamaica’s Caribbean Modern curated by Rachael Barrett, and House of Today from Beirut, Lebanon. Fairgoers can also expect to see names like Etage Projects, Joseph Walsh, Asif Khan Studio, Todd Merrill Studio, Ponce Berga, Carpenters Workshop, R & Company, and Wexler Gallery throughout the Podium and Galleries sectors, which will take place both in person and online.
Accompanying the main fair, the Design Miami/ Talks Forum also goes digital this year, including highlights like conversations between Pusha T, Pharrell Williams, and Tina Brehon presented by Adidas, and Craig Robins and Virgil Abloh with Architectural Digest. Additional happenings to look out for include the fair’s collaboration with Fendi, on view at the house’s nearby boutique, and an experimental VR installation entitled “Space Tomorrow,” presented by Eventure and the School of Space.
New Wave Art Wknd (NWAW) launches its third year in Palm Beach today, with a hybrid in-person and virtual model live through December 6.
The ninth edition of the fair encompasses an online presentation with exhibitions from 60 galleries and a series of live panel discussions hosted on Zoom and social media.
Ahead of its 20th anniversary next year, SCOPE Miami Beach is welcoming guests to the fair this year at a distance. On view through December 6 is SCOPE’s online show, SCOPE Immersive Miami Beach, greeting guests from around the globe to a dynamic virtual tour.
The 18th edition of the New Art Dealers Alliance’s Miami fair launched on December 1 with a fresh format, which will remain open through December 5.
