New Curatorial Director for Design Miami
While Aric Chen departs for the Netherlands
Art Stuff 20 Apr 2021

Design Miami just announced Wava Carpenter as its new curatorial director following the departure of Aric Chen. While Chen is leaving for the Het Nieuew Institute in Rotterdam, where he will serve as director of the art and culture institution, Carpenter previously has been active as curatorial advisor and director of commissions, design and programming. As Design Miami continues to expand its digital activities and presence, Carpenter will begin to get active for digital projects immediately and IRL events starting on December “Returning to Design Miami/ feels like a happy homecoming,” says the curator, who orchestrated the show’s programming, including design talks, design performances and design awards from 2006 to 2010. “The fair has evolved so much since its early days, and I’m looking forward to supporting the continued upward trajectory.”
