One of the most anticipated new art and design events this year was PLACE Project Group, a series of intimate and engaging hybrid art + design events that cross cultural disciplines. The brainchild of Founder & Executive Director Grela Orihuela, who is the former director and curator of the AQUA Art Miami and Art Wynwood fairs, PLACE Project Group is establishing a new approach that compliments traditional large art fairs by creating events that are collaborative, more intimate and engaging.
While the NYC edition during design week and the Hamptons Summer installment of PLACE have been postponed due to Covid-19, Orihuela is now giving a sneak peek of the concept fair with an online version called PLACE Preview which will go live on May 18th and PLACE Miami – Preview Edition, a small-scale event taking place May 28th through June 27th, which will be one of the inaugural initiatives to re-open the Miami Design District.
PLACE Preview will showcase 10 vignettes featuring the work of painter Julian Cardinal whose stylish paintings evoke classic, alluring subjects. They have been paired with the furniture of designer Vivian Carbonell, of Carbonell Design whose aesthetic of clean lines and less-is-more approach offers the perfect complement to the vogue sensibilities of Julian’s work. Because these paintings remind us that fashion is timeless, we borrow iconic and seminal shoes from the museum quality Valenzuela Shoe Collection.
PLACE Miami – Preview Edition will follow strict Phase 1 safety precautions limiting the number of guests permitted into the venue. Walk-ins are welcome and reservations are encouraged.
