The Blue Edition · Miami
The Blue Edition: Miami is part of a series of exhibitions themed around the concept of blue, one of the most beguiling colors in the history of art. Nine international artists have created works for this show, exploring the infinite variations of blue across a wide range of media. Their work will highlight the extraordinary catalogue of emotions associated with the blue from joy to sadness, eroticism to purity, and with a particular focus on its connection to the natural world (sea, sky).
The Blue Edition first opened in London with Art Bastion Gallery in November of 2016. The Miami rendition of this concept will place a particular emphasis on the relationship between the color blue and water, drawing focus to issues of oceanic conservation, sea level rise, and other marine ecosystem concerns that affect us locally.
The opening reception will include a panel discussion with the show’s curator, Nico Kos, the artist duo Home Eleven, Rachel Silverstein of Miami Waterkeeper, and Professor Tamay Özgökmen of CARTHE at University of Miami.
