Design Miami 2017 preview
The 13th edition of Design Miami (6-10 December) will soon be in full swing as the global creative community descends on the city, all in the name of design and art – and the Floridian sun and sea, of course. This year sees an energised focus on the expanding Design District, with a flock of new boutiques, restaurants, and Paradise Plaza almost doubling the creative neighbourhood’s footprint from last year. The art scene, too, has much cause to celebrate, with the recent reopening of local institutions. Here, we map out the unmissable exhibitions and events, so you can get Miami’s teenage kicks right through the night.

Running in tandem with Miami Art Week, the Swiss fair expects its usual flurry of blue-chip galleries and well-heeled patrons this year. Other noteworthy art offerings throughout the city include the newly renovated Bass Museum, which hosts a Mika Rottenberg exhibition, while Studio Drift is collaborating with BMW on a performative artwork that will see 300 drones flying through the air.
