What to See at Design Miami 2020

Nov 18, 2020 November 18, 2020

As we head into the Arts Season in Miami, Design Miami returns to its origins at the Moore Building at 191 NE 40th Street in the Miami Design District with a celebration of international world-class art and design, featuring both virtual and in-person opportunities to enjoy exhibitions and programming spanning across 18 blocks. 

Celebrating this year’s focus on art and design from the Americas, Design Miami/ Podium: America(s) will be open to the public beginning on November 28th and will run through December 6th. Entry is via timed tickets that you may purchase in advance for $22.50 at designmiami.com.

Additionally, the fair’s online presence will be significantly expanded to provide virtual programming for the many collectors and design enthusiasts around the world who have to skip travel to Miami this year. So, here are some of the standout exhibits to see at Design Miami 2020.

While this year’s Design Miami event features new exhibitions in and around the Miami Design District, including at
ICA Miami and the de la Cruz collection, the heart of the celebration will be Design Miami/Podium: America(s) at the historic Moore Building. One of Miami’s most treasured architectural icons, the three-story Moore building was Design Miami’s original venue when the fair was initially launched in 2005, before it moved to Miami Beach.

Several major international galleries will be featured with an array of diverse exhibits of contemporary work from around the world. 

In an event press release for Design Miami, Craig Robbins, founder of the Miami Design District and co-founder of Design Miami, announced the event and its adaptation to current circumstances.

“Since 2001, we have hosted significant cultural programming to inspire and engage the South Florida community. In 2020, we have a pressing need for a creative dialogue, so we have conceived of a format responsive to current circumstances. As a pedestrian open-air neighborhood, the Miami Design District makes it possible to create live experiences that connect our local community. This is a re-imagined path forward to responsibly stage cultural events around the world.”

Design Miami’s updated 2020 edition is overseen by Curatorial Director Aric Chen, and invites participation not only from galleries but also from creative studios. The theme of Podium America(s) invites a new understanding of America and the Americas as well as the definition of an “American” identity as implicated and expressed in important design and craft works by international artists and designers.

While the lineup includes such eye-popping exhibits as a cloud of crafted butterflies batting their wings inside gossamer globes, and a rooftop lounge with immersive installations designed by Takashi Murakami, gallery offerings include diverse historical objects that range from dinosaur skeletons of Camptosaurus and Allosaurus to rare 19th Century Hopi kachina dolls.

Collectors and enthusiasts will also have opportunities to view 20th century furniture, ceramics, sculpture and other collectable objects by George Nakashima, Jean Royère, and Gio Ponti, as well as contemporary pieces by Katie Stout, the Haas Brothers, Isaac Scott, Studio Job, and Johnny Swing

The fair will also feature talks presented both in person and on-line, such as a discussion on “Architecture and Blackness in America,” presented by New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and a talk on Shaker aesthetics presented by the Shaker Museum.
