Urban Expositions Announces FORM Miami
CHICAGO (April 25, 2017) – Urban Expositions, producers of SOFA CHICAGO, today announced the launch of their newest fair – FORM. Taking place in Miami during Art Week, the fair will run December 7-10 with an Opening Night Preview on Wednesday, December 6. The invitation-only fair will showcase a highly curated selection of 25 international galleries displaying the very best in the applied arts.
FORM will take place in a new venue located at Washington Avenue and 17th Street. This iconic venue, located just steps from the Miami Beach Convention Center and designed by renowned architect Morris Lapidus, will make FORM a premier destination for the Art Basel Miami Beach collecting crowds. FORM will kick-off with an Opening Night Preview on Wednesday, December 6 – an evening that will offer the public, collectors and the art and design community a first look at the inaugural fair.
“We are thrilled to launch FORM in Miami this December to create a destination for the very best in the applied arts and sculptural objects.” said Donna Davies, Vice President of Urban Expositions’ Art Group. “With more than two decades of experience producing fairs, including SOFA CHICAGO, we’re looking forward to bringing a fair dedicated to this exciting genre to Miami.”
FORM will also feature the Selects program which is a proven favorite of collectors at SOFA and Art Palm Springs. Favorite fair pieces will be chosen by noted designers, curators, and critics. FORM Selects brings the voice of these noted tastemakers directly to the FORM audience, allowing visitors to understand why particular pieces are of note by these masters in their fields. 2017 FORM Selects participants will be announced closer to the fair.
