The Curio program returns to Design Miami with eleven exhibitions. The program began in 2014 and was inspired by Renaissance cabinets of curiosities. Eaxh exhibition is on a small-scale. These curio exhibitions come from designers, galleries and brands and are shown alongside the larger-scale exhibitions by galleries.Last year the Curio program included MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab and Tom Sachs’s first furniture line.
This year's program incorporates traditional designs and materials and creators looking back at their cultural roots.
The Curio program is one of many reasons Design Miami is a must visit fair during Miami Art Week. Not only do they bridge (obliterate really) the gap between art and design it is just a fascinating collection of work that is manageable to visit over a few hours.
