MIAMI — For its second edition, Collective Design Fair is expanding its gallery representation to farther reaches around the globe, architect and Collective founder Steven Learner announced Friday. In 2014, London’s 88 Gallery, Paris’ Galerie BSL, Mexico City’s ADN Galería, L.A. and Seoul’s Gallery SEOMI, New York’s Dienst + Dotter Antikviteter, Stockholm’s Modernity, and Philadelphia’s Moderne Gallery are joining the lineup.
“We [the Collective] all developed a list of galleries that were the best from around the world that would be an amazing mix,” Learner told ARTINFO. “We were all leaning towards a very inclusive approach, so that it wasn’t just the top four French dealers that we’ve all seen.” While Mondo Cane, Ornamentum, R 20th Century, Cristina Grajales, and other founding galleries will be returning, sadly fair favorites Southern Guild are sitting this one out. After a tremendous year for the Johanesburg-based gallery, including showing at Design Miami/Basel and heading the 2014 events of World Design Capital Cape Town, “They asked for a break,” Learner was overheard saying.
The lineup thus far is below, although additions are ongoing. “We’re working on a couple of Italians,” Learner told us.
