Spectrum Miami, a juried, contemporary art show in the heart of Miami’s Arts & Entertainment District, returns November 30 – December 4 2016.
Every December, thousands of art collectors, gallery owners, dealers, curators, artists, and art lovers flock to Miami Art Week. Alongside the powerhouse shows of Art Basel, Art Miami, Scope, and Miami Project, Spectrum Miami showcases innovative new art in an elegant, gallery-style exhibition space.
“Last year, we moved to a new location in the Arts and Entertainment District, resulting in a 14 percent increase in attendance,” said Eric Smith, president of Redwood Media Group. “We are excited to see what this year will bring as Spectrum Miami has emerged as one of the best-attended cultural events in Miami.”
The theme for Spectrum Miami 2015 is [ELEVATE]: Heightening your senses at the hub of the art world. Spectrum Miami features specially curated programs that are informed by the theme, including site-specific Art Lab projects, Art Talks, a specially selected emerging LaunchPad Artist, and a selection of Spotlight Artists. These programs provide a dynamic experience for attendees, allowing them to view and interact with works by leading national and international artists and view exhibitions and events that showcase the thriving art landscape of Miami.
Spectrum Miami will also once again host ArtSpot International—a show within a show—curated by director Aldo Castillo, one of the most respected authorities on modern and contemporary art. ArtSpot will present carefully selected modern, contemporary, and cutting-edge galleries with a strong Latin-American slant that specialize in painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, and ceramics.
Tickets for Spectrum Miami’s Opening Night Preview Party are priced at $50. General Admission tickets are $20 for one day and $75 for the Opening Night Preview plus a five-day pass. Tickets will also grant you access to Red Dot Miami, a gallery-only show also owned by Redwood Media Group that is located right next to Spectrum Miami. A percentage of all ticket sales benefit LIFE is ART, a local Miami-based charity. For more information on Spectrum Miami, please visit www.spectrum-miami.com.
