There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.

Flash back to Basel – rain, art, rain, traffic, rain, and so much more art. We know you tried to get to EVERY fair and EVERY party and see EVERYTHING. If you were somehow not counted among the lucky few that experienced the artistic firestorm that was Superfine House of Art and Design fret not, art warriors! We’re taking it #BeyondBasel with a one night exhibition that brings together everything that makes Miami the art capital that it is the rest of the year in one amazing space at The Citadel, the newest enclave of innovation in Little Haiti.
Miami has always been a land of open doors, each one representing a unique opportunity. Doors of Perception challenges Miami’s top artists to let their creativity flow using a humble door monolithically mounted within the cavernous space that played host to Miami Art Week’s Superfine House of Art and Design. Artists will be on hand to engage with their work and each door will be available for purchase at an accessible price of $2500 per door. Each door is a one of a kind beautiful yet functional piece that can be either showcased within your home as an art piece or installed as a working door.
Custom doors and other original pieces will be on view by artists including:
Stuart Sheldon (curator of Fancy Na$ty)
Lori Nozick (SCOPE, Fancy Na$ty, 100+ Degrees)
To cap it all off, 305 hometown heroes Afrobeta take the stage as we bring to you Miami’s first iteration of String Theory, a connective and collective experimental installation by the Superfine! team happening in conjunction with Doors of Perception. Get creative and yarn bomb your friends and enemies. Use your string to interact with points of interest within the cavernous 15,000 square foot raw space as well as the string of your fellow creators, as you navigate the maze of artist-designed doors.
RSVP is free but limited, use miamiartdoors.eventbrite.com to get your name on the list for the opening event!
