There is something new and quite unique in Miami. Superblue is a contemporary art space in Miami that will open its doors this December. Before the doors officially open, the space will feature large-scale installations by some of the world’s leading experiential artists. The inaugural exhibition dubbed “Every Wall Is a Door” will feature immersive environments created by teamLab, Es Devlin, and James Turrell.
The showcase aims to transport visitors into unique atmospheres with dynamic programming. Superblue Cofounder and Chief Executive Officer Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst spoke about the art center. Mollie stated: “The artists inaugurating Superblue’s first experiential art center offer a glimpse into the breadth of the experiential art movement and the extraordinary possibilities for the public to engage with and activate these kinds of works.” Dent-Brocklehurst went on to add, “Each of these artists provokes us to see our relationship to the world and each other in completely new ways—from James Turrell’s work with light and space, to Es Devlin’s performative and multi-disciplinary practice, to teamLab, a collective that has continuously sought to transcend boundaries of perception through innovations in technology.”
Superblue is located directly across from the Rubell Museum. The space transformed an unused 50,000 square foot industrial building into a unique art space for the South Florida community and visitors. The venue also includes a 5,000-square-foot flexible programming and events space.
Shantelle Rodriguez, Director of Superblue Miami, also spoke about the space. She stated: “Not only does Superblue Miami add a new dimension to the arts and culture landscape in our region, but it has been conceived as a cultural hub that will be deeply rooted in and integrated with the community.” Rodriguez went further, adding, “In planning our launch and year-round program, it’s been very exciting to collaborate with local cultural and civic groups and begin the process of forging meaningful partnerships.”
The venue will be open to the public starting December 22nd. In the meantime, visit Superblue’s website for more information. Be sure to keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more from the art department coming very soon.
