Superblue Makes Its Debut on the Miami Arts Scene

Superblue Makes Its Debut on the Miami Arts Scene

Superblue’s first Experiential Arts Center will debut in Miami this week with invitational previews, to be followed by a formal public opening at the end of April. Located across from the Rubell Museum, the project creates a one-of-a-kind immersive experience.  The inaugural program showcases the work of an impressive roster of world-renowned artists: Es Devlin, James Turrell, and teamLab.

Over the past year, Zubatkin has been working with Superblue to convert a food distribution warehouse into a flexible exhibition space. The Zubatkin team was responsible for managing the planning, design, and construction of the renovations necessary for the base building, as well as overseeing the exhibit development process.  Welcome to Miami, Superblue!
