There is so much going on in Miami, art exhibitions are happening all over the sunny city and I Lobo You promises to follow everything there is to unravel about one of the best weeks that celebrates modern design. Let’s step inside Miami Design District!
All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins by Yayoi Kusama Presented by ICA Miami
One of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s famed Infinity Mirror Room installations, All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins, is on view at Miami’s Institute of Contemporary Art.
Perrier-Jouët’s Cave Of Ceramics
11,000 ceramics in four different shades and 15 different hues make up Metamorphosis, an installation by Andrea Mancuso for Maison Perrier-Jouët at Design Miami. Titled Metamorphosis, the installation at Design Miami is inspired by a painting of the champagne house’s Epernay vineyards during harvest.
Mancuso composed 11,000 ceramic pieces to mimic the natural portrait – he tells me that each one is labeled and part of the scheme to achieve this intricate puzzle.
Pink Beasts by Fernando Laposse
Miami Design District chose Mexican Designer Fernando Laposse to embellish the design district with his pink sisal tassels and fun pinky hairy sloths hanging from ropes that visitors can see from bellow. One of the most fun and colorful art exhibitions!
The Garden of Beauty by Marc Ange
Designer Marc Ange, best-known for the Instagrammable pink Le Refuge canopy, has taken over Italian interiors company Visionnaire’s showroom with The Garden of Beauty. The lush exhibit will debut Ange’s Il Pavone – a series of decorative furniture influenced by peacock feathers.

Humanoids by Atelier Van Lieshout
Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout‘s Humanoids are made from aluminum and resemble abstracted human and animal forms. The sculptures are arranged to decorate the short walk that leads from Art Basel Miami Beach at the Miami Beach Convention Center to the Design Miami fair.
Crystal Clear – Limited-Edition Crystal Pieces by Virgil Abloh and Baccarat
During this years’ edition Design Miami, Virgil Abloh has joined forces with french crystal manufacturer Baccarat to design a limited-edition collection of glass objects for the home. Titled “crystal clear”, the family comprises chandeliers, table vessels, and drinking glasses.
Inspired by Abloh’s “figures of speech” exhibition, which is currently touring the US, each piece in the collection seeks to interpret the elegance and poise associated with the 255-year-old Baccarat brand.
