Situated throughout the exposition floor, Spectrum Miami’s featured programs provide a dynamic experience for our audience to view and interact with site-specific and performance works by leading international artists, as well as view exhibitions that showcase the thriving art landscape of Miami. Featured programs include Art Labs, LaunchPad, Spotlight, and Art Talks. Programs are informed by a common theme.
2017 Curatorial Theme
[FUSION]: the merging of artistic mediums, of exhibitors and collectors, and of the countless galleries and artists who come together to showcase their work—this fusion culminates in our remarkable Spectrum contemporary art shows.
Art Labs feature specially curated projects by leading galleries, art institutions, and art collectives within the show.
The Spotlight Artists Program provides collectors a focused look at several cutting-edge artists who will each be creating a site-specific exhibition. This year’s artists will be announced in November.
LaunchPad: Each year, an emerging, unrepresented artist is selected to create an exhibition at the show. This year, the search for the LaunchPad artist is a collaboration between local art institutions and galleries and Spectrum Miami.
ArtSpot International Art Show is a standalone event hosted inside Spectrum Miami. The show will present carefully selected modern, contemporary, and cutting-edge galleries with a strong Latin-American emphasis. ArtSpot is curated by director Aldo Castillo, one of the most respected authorities on modern and contemporary art. An award-winning art dealer and curator, Castillo has curated over 250 international art exhibitions and the development of many important public and private collections in Chicago and around the world.
