Redwood Media Group — the nation’s leader in exhibitions and event production, media, and marketing for the global fine art community — has announced its return to Wynwood Arts District and the permanent bricks-and-mortar home for both of its flagship art shows that remain two of the longest-running fairs during Miami Art Week.
Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami will return to Mana Wynwood, with both fairs now located inside the Convention Center for the first time offering the only “Two Shows Under One Roof” and new world-class experience for both exhibitors and art enthusiasts during this year’s Miami Art Week, taking place Dec. 4-8.
Both shows will cover more than 100,000 square feet of indoor exhibition space and be more accessible for visitors on foot and by car, all within walking distance from Wynwood’s trendiest restaurants, bars and retail boutiques. “We’re pleased to continue our unique alliance with Mana Wynwood during this year’s Miami Art Week,” said Eric Smith, president of Redwood Media Group. “Last year, we returned to Wynwood Arts District for the first time since 2015, which proved to be an overwhelming success and marked a new chapter in the evolution of Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami.
“With both shows now completely indoors, forming a new and improved layout, aesthetic and functionality, both exhibitors and attendees alike can look forward to an unprecedented level of luxury over the five days. We’re very excited to unveil our new look and elevated art fair experience.” Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami form the acclaimed contemporary and fine art experience that collectively presents some of today’s most coveted national and international galleries and artists from the U.S and around the world. Redwood Media Group exclusively produces the two art shows housed in one location — considered to be the only multi-show production of its kind during Miami Art Week.
Spectrum Miami, an upscale and urban curated contemporary art fair, now in its ninth year, will be located adjacent to Red Dot Miami and inside Mana Wynwood Convention Center for the very first time, elevating the always exciting fine art experience.
Spectrum Miami presents special programs and site-specific exhibitions that showcase the thriving art landscape of the city, informed by the 2019 curatorial theme [IGNITE]. Passion is not just the way to happiness; it’s also the fuel that ignites success. Spark an interest.
Ignite a passion. Discover a path at Miami Art Week’s most engaging contemporary art fair featuring an international slate of artists and galleries. Spectrum Miami also ia where contemporary meets extraordinary, featuring the works of more than 200 exhibiting galleries and artists from the Florida region, the U.S. and around the globe. Known for its urban and upscale works of art, the five-day show attracts more than 35,000 visitors and high-net-worth collectors who interact with the specially curated programming, while celebrating the fine art experience with music, entertainment and other special events.
Spectrum Miami includes Art Labs and Art Talks, as well as the Spotlight Program, providing collectors with a focused look at several prominent exhibitors, each creating a site-specific exhibition, and the new Local Talent Program, showcasing a curated group of emerging and unrepresented artists who will create a special exhibition at the show, selected from a collaboration among local art institutions, galleries, and Spectrum Miami.
Spectrum Miami will include [FOTO SOLO], featuring fine art photographers from various continents who have been chosen for their exemplary photographic fine art. The complete Spectrum Miami program will be announced in November.
Red Dot Miami, a curated gallery-only contemporary art fair, now in its 14th year, will be located adjacent to Spectrum Miami and inside Mana Wynwood Convention Center for its second year, as part of the highly anticipated annual presentation of leading galleries and their artists.
Red Dot Miami presents [PASSION] as the curatorial theme for 2019. Art is more than a hobby, a skill, or a practice. It is a way of life. Each gallery is filled with canvases, sculptures, and photographs created by artists who each stand for something a little different, but find a common passion in what art does for them. Red Dot Miami illuminates the best the contemporary art world has to offer. The theme forms a common thread throughout the special exhibits and programming that showcases exhibitors, art industry professionals, and select nonprofits and institutions. Red Dot Miami features more than 75 galleries representing over 500 leading contemporary artists from primary and secondary markets throughout the world.
The five-day show attracts more than 35,000 visitors and high-net-worth collectors who interact with the specially curated programming, which includes the Spotlight Program, a focused look at several cutting-edge galleries chosen by the Redwood Media Group selection committee; Art Labs, a series of outstanding projects by leading galleries, art institutions, and art collectives within the show; and Art Talks, an inside look at the artistic experience by way of panel discussions, conversations, and provocative artistic discourse with leading artists, curators, designers, and art industry professionals. The complete Red Dot Miami program will be announced in November.
Spectrum Miami and Red Dot Miami have grown to become the ultimate destination for the fine art industry professional and contemporary art enthusiast who collectively seek a more accessible experience with exhibits showcasing the world’s most progressive portfolios by some of today’s elite artists, galleries, and emerging talents. With more than 35,000 attendees flocking to see the artwork of the 1,000-plus artists showcased by over 270 exhibitors, these are two non-stop, not-to-be missed destination Miami Art Week shows.
