A Miami for all tastes

Miami’s art scene has something for everyone. Art critic Dennis Dahlqvist highlights his picks of the city’s eclectic mix of museums and art spaces.

World Erotic Art Museum

The pleasure-seeking lifestyle of Miami determines the city’s dress code. In South Beach, there’s a distinctly hedonistic theme: If you’ve got it, flaunt it, which among other things means that even the mannequins have gigantic breasts. This is where you’ll find the World Erotic Art Museum whose exhibits include the giant penis that plays a central role in the movie A Clockwork Orange.

As well as Art Basel Miami, every December, Miami Design comes to town. This consists of a number of interesting art fairsscattered across Miami Beach. Perhaps the best art fair is Untitled, which is held in the middle of the beach and specializes in young contemporary art.

Casa Casuarina

Gianni Versace, the most sex-fixated fashion designer in history, owned a luxurious palace, Casa Casuarina, on Ocean Drive in the heart of the Art Deco district. He was murdered on the stairs here in 1997. Casa Casuarina is now a restaurant and luxury hotel.

Buckminster Fuller Dome

The new, super-flashy Miami Design District is well worth a visit – not just for its luxury boutiques such as Hermès and Dior, but also to see the amazing Buck­minster Fuller Fly’s Eye Dome from 1979, a wonder of modern design.
