The Young Artist Initiative (YAI) is pushing through the fifth wall in Design and its Dimensions event on Friday, October 28. Spotlighting more than 40 creatives, organizers are working in partnership with the Miami Design District to transform the iconic Moore Building into an inspired space for designers, architects, visual artists, and performance.
Miami is alive with events, concerts, exhibitions and all the good stuff that comes with the cooler September air. And while most locals have spent the past couple months looking for shade, it’s time to re-emerge from hibernation for the premiere edition of Miami Design District’s Day Into Night music event.
In a poetic ode to the natural world, Antonia Wright’s exhibition at Locust Projects, Under the water was sand, then rocks, miles of rocks, then fire, invites viewers to explore the elements of night and day, past and present, and of flowers in bloom. Her installation is nostalgic and fully immersive, and uses both technology and nature to synthesize film, sculpture and jazz into a brilliant sensorial experience. A highlight of Miami’s lively arts season, Wright’s show offers a respite—a temporal and spatial capsule—in the heart of the Miami Design District.
In an ode to women, Markowicz Fine Art has dedicated its summer program to the artists and subjects that we admire, and to the men that admire them. A selection of photography, sculpture, painting and mixed media explore femininity, sexuality and female curves in all their glory. Unapologetic and defiant, “Summer Women” is a celebration.
