The Programming

For the 2017 edition, Spectrum Miami has prepared specially curated programs showcasing exhibitors, art industry professionals, and select nonprofits and institutions. The fair will provide a dynamic experience for the audience to view and interact with site-specific and performance works by leading international artists, at the same time showcasing the thriving art landscape of Miami.

Featured programs Art Labs, LaunchPad, Spotlight, and Art Talks are all informed by this year’s common curatorial theme – FUSION.  Following this curatorial theme, the fair will serve as the merging of artistic mediums, of exhibitors and collectors, and of the countless galleries and artists who come together to showcase their work.

Art Labs will feature specially curated projects by leading galleries, art institutions, and art collectives within the show. Visitors will have an opportunity to experience the piece Our Path by sculptor James West of Studio Wild West, a monumental, contemporary outdoor sculpture delicately laced with intricate laser carvings that celebrate the natural world. An installation A Walk in the Clouds is another unforgettable display of nature’s most wondrous creationsCurated by Noor Blazekovic of Irreversible Projects, with the support of Jane Hart of Lemon Sky Projects and Neil Gold of Galleria Farms, it is an elaborate sensory experience, featuring approximately 2000 freshly cut flowers of multiple colors that will form a circular arena-like structure – each suspended from the ceiling.

As part of the LaunchPad, Spectrum Miami selects an emerging, unrepresented artist to create an exhibition at the show. Selected in collaboration with local art institutions and galleries, this year’s LaunchPad artist will be Alicia Rodriguez, an emerging glass sculpture artist.

The Spotlight Artists Program will once again provide collectors a focused look at several cutting-edge artists who will each be creating a site-specific exhibition. This year’s Spotlight Artists are Robert Peterson, known for his color-saturated, spontaneous realism celebrity portraits, Shannon Defreitas, who paints the bodies of her subjects and then collaborates with a photographer who photographs the bodies to create a unique abstract image full of color, Thomas Wargin, an artist-inventor using a blend of old and new practices to create sculptures that are whimsical, unconventional, and mischievous, and Paul Chang, known for his abstract impressionist paintings inspired by the nature that surrounds him.

Other highlights include a very special exhibit at Red Dot Miami by Ricardo Cardenas curated by Mariavelia Savino, an artist who has created artwork with acrylic on steel and concrete salvaged from the recent earthquake in Mexico, the exhibition by Marielle Plaisir at Red Dot Miami, a French-Caribbean artist exhibiting a rare collection of tapestries, and an exhibition by Sergio Valenzuela “Valenz” presented by Arte Collective at Red Dot Miami, the widely acclaimed artist known for his abstract work portraying chairs, ladders and beds.
