It’s that time of year, where the beach is not the main reason people are flooding the streets of Miami—Art Week is in town!
Like every year, the city offers an overwhelming amount of unmissable exhibitions and art events, catering to modern and contemporary tastes.
The mother event, encompassing 250 galleries and presenting around 4,000 artists from across the world in front of the art world’s best curators, and collectors. This year’s highlights include “Nova,” that showcases new works by a specific number of artists; “Positions,” for single-artist pieces; “Kabinett,” the section full of artist-curated booths; and “Survey,” for a dose of art history.

This year, SCOPE is hopping on the Artificial Intelligence train, and giving the viewers a never-before-seen ride through works done by AICAN—an Artificial Intelligence Artist that autonomously makes art! Some of the works, though, are also in collaboration with (real-life) artists Tim Bengel and Devin Gharakhanian, who in turn, debuted collaborative pieces with AICAN that were created specifically for this exhibition.
Scope: 801 Ocean Drive
As always, the Design Miami/ fair comes back with a bang, featuring a compelling mix of exhibitions and installations, with the main installation being the Plaza Installation designed by Design Miami/ Visionary Award Winners Pedro Reyes and Carla Fernández, symbolising solidarity in a time of political and geographical division. The many satellite fairs include FENDI’s The Shapes of Water by Sabine Marcelis, and Louis Vuitton’s unveiling the Objets Nomades.

Women are at the heart of Pulse, with powerful works that hinge on sensitive and controversial topics such as rape (One In Five of Us by Ann Lewis), and an anti-Indigenous rhetoric by Alicia Smith, as well as politically-inspired works.
