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.

The third iteration of the Loewe Foundation’s ‘Chance Encounters’ series sees new work from ceramic sculptor Sara Flynn exhibited alongside a great, swathing installation by Richard Smith, and photographs that document 1930s Ceylon by historical Sri Lankan artist Lionel Wendt. Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson called on Flynn to ‘respond to the space, rather than the other artists’ work’. To wit, Flynn’s voluptuous ceramic forms pay homag to the 18th-century Spanish granary inside Loewe’s Miami boutique.
