The Big Apple and the beach will join forces with the three-day Design Miami/ New York Galleries, a collaboration between organizers of the annual Design Miami art fairs in Basel, Switzerland, and Miami and 11 of New Yorkâ€™s top design galleries. Encompassing a series of edgy design exhibitions, the event will be on view at locations throughout the city, March 25-27. Conceived as a design component to the slew of art exhibitions taking place for the prestigious contemporary art-based Armory Show, on view March 27-30, Design Miami/ New York Galleries will feature exhibitions of limited-edition and historic design in 11 Manhattan galleries. â€œWhile collectors and design enthusiasts were able to visit temporary booths organized by each of these galleries at Design Miami, this event will allow each institution to emphasize its own unique sensibility on its home turf,â€ says Design Miami director and cofounder, Ambra Medda. Subjects will range from innovation in contemporary design to the relationship between design and socio-political movements of the 20th century. Attendees will get an exclusive look at work by the likes of George Nakashima, Serge Mouille, Poul Kjaerholm, Charlotte Perriand, and Jean ProuvÃ©. The eleven participating galleries are Antik, Christina Grajales, DeLorenzo 1950, Demisch Danant, Donzella 20th Century Gallery, Galerie Patrick Seguin, Johnson Trading Gallery, Magen H. Gallery, Moss, R20th Century, and Sebastian + Barquet. â€œThis event is a wonderful chance for us to create an intimate experience for visitors in our own gallery that will help them to gain a deeper understanding of who we are,â€ says Antik cofounder Kim Hostler.
