Missing Art? New Exhibits and a Pop-Up Shop Open in Miami’s Design District

Missing Art? New Exhibits and a Pop-Up Shop Open in Miami’s Design District

Jun 03, 2020 June 03, 2020

Let’s face it, for those of us who love art, checking out a new exhibit after staying home so long is as good as a perfect morning latte. It’s refreshing, invigorating, and definitely going to make your day. As Miami’s Design District reopened on the 20th of May, the style destination got itself a brand-new art collection under the direction of new curator Claire Breukel, who also curates the Craig Robins Collection. 

Here’s looking at all the exhibits on view in Miami’s Design District this summer:

3060 sq. ft.

By: Tom Scicluna

When: Through June 27
Where: Paradise Plaza 133

3060 sq. ft. By: Tom Scicluna

Miami-based conceptual artist Tom Scicluna is known for his focus on sculptural works using found materials. Represented by Nina Johnson Gallery, the celebrated artist is known for creative works that question the ideas of artistic control, display, function of the art, and distance between idea and reality, as well as the viewer and image.

This time, for his site-based intervention at Paradise Plaza, he has a special treat in store. The contemporary artist sourced and shipped a 36 x 85 feet vinyl billboard advertisement from an online used billboard website. So, the title 3060 sq. ft. is the actual, physical representation of the two-dimensional sculpture, whose contents were kept secret until installation.

Works from four Latin American sculptors - Verónica Vázquez, Pablo Rasgado, Artur Lescher, and Túlio Pinto - have been called in for an exhibit that reevaluates human understanding of the rules of space, time, and gravity. Each artist on the roster is known for signature works that are meant to redefine the way we comprehend the workings of physics. While Verónica Vázquez works with metal plates and iron to create large-scale works, Mexican artist Pablo Rasgado is known for transforming everyday materials into new abstractions. And, while Brazilian artist Artur Lescher is known for poetic sculptures, his peer Túlio Pinto uses industrial materials to convey his visual dialogue.

Preview Edition at Paradise Plaza

By: PLACE Miami

When: Through June 27
Where: Paradise Plaza 127

His recent solo exhibit “DragonFruit” in Pittsburgh received critical acclaim.

Shop Pop-Up

By: Peréz Art Museum Miami Pop-Up Shop

When: June 22 – August 22
Where: MR 108

Opinions and Advice Condo Painting Dos and Don’ts
Painting your home can be a daunting prospect. From color selection to the clean-up mess! However, when done right, a good paint job can give your condo a well-needed facelift. Believe it or not, painting is actually quite a complex procedure. I mean, who knew there were 52 shades of white?! And whatever color you do end up choosing will dictate the mood and feel of your entire condo - so no pressure! What Color? Which Room? At the end of the day, you should paint your house in whatever color floats your boat! You have to live there after all. That being said there are definitely good and bad paint colors. The colors and combinations you chose will ultimately have an impact on the look, and more importantly, the feel of your home, and this can be pivotal when it comes time to sell.  For example, you might love a dramatic dark indigo wall, but houses with dark walls have historically sold for less than ones painted in lighter and more neutral tones.
