Cerámica Suro and SCAD Teamed at Design Miami for One of the Highlights of Miami Art Week
We are still going through all of our notes from the Miami art week, and one of the standout booths we visited was at Design Miami, where our friends at SCAD teamed with the world-renowned Mexican studio Cerámica Suro. The collaboration saw Cerámica Suro create collections of glazed tiles by SCAD alumni artists Nicolas Barrera (M.Arch.; B.F.A., architecture, 2018), Lauren Clay (B.F.A., painting, 2004), Gonzalo Hernandez (M.F.A., fibers, 2019; M.A., painting, 2018), Cory Imig (B.F.A., fibers, 2008), Abel Macias (B.F.A., illustration, 2002), and Nikita Nagpal (M.F.A., fibers, 2019).
From SCAD: Reflecting the artists’ unique creative visions, the tiles are showcased in a dramatic arched intervention by Barrera. The immersive installation, which also features new lighting and furniture designs by SCAD alum Marcelo Suro (B.F.A., industrial design, 2022), transforms over the course of the fair, with a different collection enlivening the space each day. SCAD AT MIAMI embodies the university’s mission to provide opportunities for SCAD students and alumni to present their work on an international platform.
