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.

Adding an additional 50 per cent of exhibition space to its previous location in Miami, the ICA opens the doors to its impressive new home. An ambitious programme kicks off with the Institute’s first thematic survey of both contemporary innovators and modern masters, alongside the debut display of six large-scale works, on view throughout the museum and its sculpture garden. In addition, a major group exhibition exploring the cultural, political and creative significance of the artist’s workspace – ‘The Everywhere Studio’ – charts the post-war period to the present day, and encompasses some 100 mixed media works from 50 artists.
