Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami Art Fairs are moving to Mana Wynwood
Sazoneros! I know Art Basel is a few months away so I've got some fun news to share about one of my favorite art fairs. Redwood Media Group, the nation's leader in exhibitions and event production, media, and marketing for the global fine art community, is partnering with Mana Wynwood to form a permanent new home for their longest running independent art shows during Miami Art Week.
Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami will return to Wynwood Arts District starting in 2018, with a new and long-term location at Mana Wynwood offering an exceptional and elevated world-class experience for both exhibitors and art enthusiasts during this year's Miami Art Week, taking place December 5th through the 9th. The only venue featuring two shows in one location during Miami Art Week will cover more than 100,000 square feet of exhibition space and be even more accessible for visitors on foot and by car, all within walking distance from Wynwood's trendiest restaurants, bars and retail boutiques.Red Dot Miami, a curated gallery-only contemporary art show, now in its 13th year, will be located inside Mana Wynwood. Red Dot Miami presents [ILLUMINATE] as the curatorial theme for 2018. From works that inspire awe and wonder to sweeping series that reveal new trends to artists who throw light on the roots of imagination through fearless creativity, Red Dot Miami illuminates the best the contemporary art world has to offer. This theme forms a common thread throughout the special exhibits and programming that showcases exhibitors, art industry professionals, and select nonprofits and institutions. Red Dot Miami features more than 75 galleries representing over 500 leading contemporary artists from primary and secondary markets throughout the world. The complete Red Dot Miami program will be announced in November.
Spectrum Miami, an upscale and urban curated contemporary art show, now in its 8th year, will be located adjacent to Red Dot Miami at Mana Wynwood. Spectrum Miami presents special programs and site-specific exhibitions that showcase the thriving art landscape of the city, informed by the 2018 curatorial theme [ALLURE]. Atmospheric abstracts. Provocative photographs. Seductive sculptures. The allure of contemporary and modern art is mysteriously and undeniably powerful. Spectrum Miami is where contemporary meets extraordinary, featuring the works of more than 160 exhibiting artists and galleries from the Florida region, the U.S. and around the globe.
