Valencian Art Lands in the Design District

Valencia, Spain is known for its sophisticated use of street and structural art: Walk through its historic downtown center and you’ll see murals adorning everything from business entrances to bus stops.

ArtistaInvitArtista, an international artistic exchange project, hopes to bring a little bit of Valencia to Miami with “Common Gound,” an exhibit featuring the works of 11 Valencian artists and eight Miamians, each bound by their ability to create engaging installations by manipulating conventional materials.

Selctions include an intricately woven light installation by Miami resident and exhibit co-curator Alette Simmons-Jimenez, as well as Valencian artist Sebastián Miralles' mind-bending abstract structures that challenge notions of geometry and scale.
