Nov. 17, 2017 – The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) presents SCAD AT MIAMI, a celebration of contemporary art and creative education, at Untitled, Miami Beach during Miami Art Week, Dec. 6–10, 2017.
Central to SCAD AT MIAMI is Chroma, an exhibition of immersive installations by renowned international artist and SCAD deFINE ART 2017 honoree Carlos Cruz-Diez, presented by the SCAD Museum of Art, in collaboration with Articruz and the Cruz-Diez Art Foundation. Chroma explores Cruz-Diez’s experimental and multidisciplinary practice and examines the artist’s groundbreaking color theory philosophies.
“SCAD AT MIAMI marries ‘what’s now’ and ‘what’s next’. Just imagine: three rising stars of art and design standing shoulder-to-shoulder with a lion of contemporary art, the maestro himself, Carlos Cruz-Diez,” said SCAD president and founder Paula Wallace. “Awash in chromaticity and creative vitality, SCAD AT MIAMI takes guests on an ecstatic journey. Join us, SCAD and Untitled, Miami Beach, for an unforgettable ride.”
SCAD Art Sales, the university’s full-service art consultancy, introduces new works by SCAD alumni artists Christopher Paul Dean (M.F.A., sculpture, 2016), Cory Imig (B.F.A., fibers, 2008) and Britt Spencer (professor of illustration; M.F.A., painting, 2011; B.F.A., illustration, 2005) — three artists who, like Cruz-Diez, use vibrant color, pattern and crisp lines as primary elements in their compositions. SCAD Art Sales is located within the Untitled, Miami Beach pavilion at Booth #E28. Additional information is available at scadartsales.com.
