Located in the city’s Allapattah neighbourhood, opposite the recently opened Rubell Museum, Superblue Miami occupies a renovated 50,000-square-foot (4,650-square-metre) building.
The building was transformed by Kobi Karp Architecture and Interior Design to create an arts space that will host a year-round schedule of talks, performances, workshops, and family programmes, as well as event rentals.
Approximately 31,000 square feet (2,880 square metres) of flexible installation space can be custom-built and adapted to the specificities of experiential art installations, while 6,000 square feet (560 square metres) is dedicated to flexible event space.
Superblue Miami’s inaugural program includes a new project by Devlin – known for her stage sets and large-scale artworks for major artists and events – who has created an immersive environment using mirrored surfaces and lighting.
After watching a film, visitors can weave their way through the maze-like installation, titled Forest of Us.
The venue’s debut also features a transcendent digital world created by Japanese collective teamLab, and an enveloping light-based Ganzfeld work by American artist James Turrell.
Superblue Miami also boasts an outdoor cafe that serves a locally sourced menu and uses eco-friendly dishware, as well as a shop selling artist-inspired items.
Superblue is located at 1101 NW 23rd Street, Miami, Florida. For more information about the venue, and its current and upcoming programming, visit the website.
