2015 CURATORIAL THEME
[EMERGENCE]: Innovative vision coming to life.
Spectrum Miami’s theme for 2015 explores the act of illumination, of creativity emerging from the artist. The abundance of trend-setting artists and galleries exhibiting at Spectrum Miami will reflect this theme, as will the show’s special programming, including Art Labs, Art Talks, and the Spotlight Artist and LaunchPad Programs.

ArtSpot International Art Show: A Show Within a Show
We will be hosting ArtSpot International Art Show—a stand-alone event inside the show. ArtSpot 2015 replicates a model introduced to the Miami art community last year, presenting carefully selected modern, contemporary and cutting-edge galleries with strong curatorial programs and their represented artists. It is aimed at offering extremely high-quality art to the Miami art community and worldwide collectors during Art Basel Week.
About our new location
The Arts and Entertainment District has recently seen a renaissance of creative energy with the advent of Miami’s premier performance space (The Adrienne Arscht Center), and the opening of hip restaurants and speakeasy-inspired bars. There’s no doubt that its location just minutes from all of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods (including Wynwood, Design District, Downtown and South Beach) make the Arts and Entertainment District Miami’s next big discovery. Still being defined by the burgeoning creative scene, the Arts and Entertainment District is poised for exceptional growth in the coming years.
As Miami’s new cultural center, the Arts and Entertainment District is bordered to the north by 19th street, to the south by 10th street, to the east by Biscayne Boulevard and to the west by NW 2nd avenue. The Arts and Entertainment District finds itself at perhaps the most convenient location in all of Miami – just minutes to downtown (its immediate south), Wynwood (its immediate north) and South Beach (to the east), and at the heart of the cultural renaissance currently transforming Miami.
