When Design Miami/ kicks off its 2016 fair later this month, it will do so with a bang by introducing Flotsam & Jetsam, one of the largest 3-D printed objects in the world, designed by this year’s Panerai Design Miami/ Visionary Award winner, SHoP Architects. The original design will serve as the entrance of this year’s Design Miami/ fair and afterwards be moved to Jungle Plaza as a permanent structure. Come spring/summer 2017, the space will be launched with the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami’s new signature program. The initiative will seek to partner with some of the most lauded artists of our day to bring public sculptures to Miami. Once completed, the public sculpture initiative will be activated with a program of talks, performances and cocktail events in the plaza.

It’s hard to believe that in just a few days Miami Art week returns to the Magic City. As artists, gallery owners and exhibitors prepare their works and as event planners and publicists are pulling together their final RSVPs, those attending the art fairs and parties are busy planning their wardrobes.

Daring the impossible, José Bedia, Luis Gomez, and Fabián Peña are challenging how audiences think about art in Squaring the Circle, one exhibition in a constellation of exciting pop-ups taking place in the Miami Design District during Miami Art Week.
