Laboratories for Design, Craft, and Art in Latin America
The term “new territories,” as evoked by Italian architect and designer Gaetano Pesce, refers to the state of making in today’s globalized society, a phenomenon that has helped to spur a confluence of art, design, and craft. The exhibition New Territories: Laboratories for Design, Craft, and Art in Latin America will examine this trend in several distinct cities throughout Latin America, where some of the most pertinent new directions in arts and design are emerging today.
New Territories explores the collaborations between small manufacturing operations and craftspersons, artists, and designers, and demonstrates how the resulting work addresses not only the issues of commodification and production, but also of urbanization, displacement, and sustainability. The exhibition will explore a number of key themes, including: the dialogue between contemporary trends and artistic legacies in Latin American art; the use of recycled and repurposed materials and objects; the blending of digital and traditional skills; and the reclamation of personal and public space.
New Territories is organized by MAD’s Acting Chief Curator Lowery Stokes Sims and Adriana Kertzer, Curatorial Assistant and Project Manager. It follows MAD’s groundbreaking 2010 exhibition The Global Africa Project, which presented new craft, design, and art that transcended nationality and regionalism in its presentation of the new nomadic paradigm of African identity. The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully-illustrated, full color catalogue that will be published in separate English and Spanish editions by Turner Libros of Madrid and Mexico City.
Major support for New Territories: Laboratories for Art, Craft and Design in Latin America is provided by the Ford Foundation and the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation. Additional support is provided by Furthermore: a program of the J. M. Kaplan Fund, The Venezuelan American Endowment for the Arts and The Louise D. and Morton J. Macks Family Foundation.

The Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science and the Ryder Charitable Foundation are excited and proud to host a new two-day festival, NEXT: From Nano to Macro, Innovation at Every Scale. At NEXT, science and techie fans of all ages can learn about how technology is rapidly adapting to accommodate society’s growing demand for “the NEXT big thing.” During the weekend, visitors will discover that innovation is everywhere –from the obvious to the discreet. Activities include the following:
- Explore the journey of new ideas from concept to reality through The NEXT Big Thing Innovation Showcase by University of Miami’s The Launch Pad, and be inspired to create from inventors of a variety of ages and interests.
- Climb in a big “green” truck from Ryder and electric cars from Tesla to learn about the latest technology in sustainable transportation.
- Learn how current technological developments are leading to improvements for individuals and the environment, from better repairs for the human body to more sustainable transportation with the “nano” talk series including prominent innovators, scientists and engineers from Ryder, BioNIUM, and UM’s Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering.
- Dive into the “Maker” movement through two challenges. At the Mutants Maker Challenge, artist and designer Ernesto Oroza demonstrates how to repurpose the old to become new. During the Belly of the Beast Maker Activity, artist Kerry Phillips uses old and found objects to create a new community art project.*
- Become the NEXT “Maker” with the Make Me a Maker activities series for kids led by REM Learning Center South
- Get animated by altering your surroundings through a visually striking projection mapping experience in the planetarium led by Phenomenal Experience Agency.
- Discover how the very small can impact the very big with nano interactives provided by NISE Network’s Nano Days, BioNIUM, and Materials Advantage FIU Chapter.
- Stimulate your musical side with sound demos and activities with Arduino Musical Hopstotch by DCR Arduino Brigade.
- Join The LAB Miami in its weekend long Hackathon Challenge with an app showcase on Sunday at 1pm. Pre-selected programming teams will have 24 hours to complete the challenge! (The public is welcome to attend the brainstorming kick-off event on Friday, April 4th at the Museum.)
- Design your own app at The App Challenge Workshop by TECKpert.
