Art Week Miami Beach 2022 will offer internationally renowned programming and exhibitions, from the opening of a monumental public artwork by Jaume Plensa in Pride Park to new temporary public art installations by FriendsWithYou and Edouard Duval-Carrié. Returning for its fourth year is the increasingly popular Miami Beach Legacy Purchase Program, which has acquired works by artists Sanford Biggers, Amoako Boafo, Ebony G. Patterson and Farah Al Qasimi.
The City of Miami Beach is pleased to announce the inaugural installation of Elevate Española, a new dedicated art presentation site that will feature aerial installations suspended above the historic Española Way. The project will launch with an installation entitled Trapeze Contortionists by Miami local and Haitian-born artist Edouard Duval-Carrié. The work — which will present the silhouettes of 15 figures of dancers, cut from lightweight aluminum — will be unveiled on Monday, November 28 at 1pm, coinciding with the kick-off of Art Week Miami Beach.
One of the highlights of Art Week Miami Beach is the City-produced and curated No Vacancy, Miami Beach, a juried art competition that supports and celebrates mainly local artists, provokes critical discourse, and encourages the public to experience Miami Beach’s famed hotels as temporary art destinations in their own right. This year will be the largest to date, with an expanded program presenting 12 artists creating site-specific works at 12 iconic Miami Beach hotels. The installations will open Thursday, November 17 and be available to view through December 8, 2022.
The fourth edition of the Miami Beach Legacy Purchase Program will continue with Art Basel Miami Beach galleries participating in the 2022 Nova and Positions sectors. The Miami Beach Legacy Purchase Program seeks to strategically expand Miami Beach’s public art collection by purchasing an artwork that is reflective of our community spirit, aligns with the curatorial direction of our existing collection, reflects international artistic excellence, and is a valuable investment to our Art in Public Places collection.
For its third and final commission, Miami Beach OnStage! will present its largest commission to date, a 50' figurative sculpture for the 41st Street Corridor, entitled Starchild by artist duo FriendsWithYou. Starchild is the newest character in the artists' oeuvre, created as a symbol of light, power and nature. The work will be unveiled on Monday, November 28 at 5pm on the corner of Pinetree Drive and 41st Street.
Below is a full list of programming. We encourage all to visit the individual websites for general and ticket information and hours of operation.

Also on view will be the Cuban music and dance-driven Turn the Beat Around and the maps-inspired Plotting Power.
Rumba, conga, and Afro-Cuban jazz. Mambo, cha-cha-cha, and salsa. Turn the Beat Around revisits the artistic and innovative exchanges between musicians from Cuba and the U.S. during the 1930s to '60s, showcasing posters, record and sheet music covers, film clips, and audio from the era to bring to life the musical fusion found between cultures.
Mirrors of our loftiest dreams and deepest fears, maps draw literal lines between "you" and "me," "us" and "other," more often reflecting how we see it than how it is. This Wolfsonian collection exhibition follows the exploitation of geography in the first half of the 20th century, when the possibilities of travel and technology opened new horizons for global ambition.

Richard Orlinski Exhibit:
Lincoln Road District will further enhance its arts and culture experience by showcasing 12 giant, electrifying sculptures by French artist Richard Orlinski. The exhibit will run from November 2022 to March 2023.
Keith Haring + CityKids:
In 1986, Keith Haring worked with the CityKids organization and 1000 kids in NYC to create an 90′ tall mural titled “CityKids Speak On Liberty” comprised of Keith’s dark outlines of his iconic dancing figures and the Statue of Liberty. When asked why the statue’s arm was made from oddly curved lines, Haring’s off-the-cuff response was “because liberty is wobbly.” 36 years later… in 2022, liberty is not only still wobbly, but seemingly broken into many pieces as the US struggles with maintaining a sense of social cohesion and its cultural and political divisions appear to grow worse each year.
Over the course of Miami Art Week, “Because Liberty is Broken” will be displayed in the 640 Lincoln Road space and participants are invited to collaborate with HVY and CityKids to write directly onto the broken pieces of 3D version of the Haring’s torch from the original “City Kids Speak on Liberty” mural.
