The Ritz-Carlton Brings Two Powerful Exhibitions to Miami Beach - Art Basel 2023

As Art Week Miami is quickly approaching, don't miss the following much anticipated exhibits happening at The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami and The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach.

The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami - Our Legacy

The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami presents Our Legacy by Israeli - born artist Ronen Azulay. The exhibition presents a deep and personal tapestry of Ronen's family history, showing traces of the origins of a union that transcended tribal boundaries, a testament to love's power to bridge divides. As Ronen examined his family lineage, he discovered an ever-changing world – one marked by escalating intra-Jewish tensions that necessitated the concealment of our roots, particularly the precious North African heritage. This body of work comes from profound self-discovery. The mosaics are painstakingly assembled from cherished recycled fabrics and scraps of leather, generously bestowed upon Ronen by his community. In this pivotal moment, we are entrusted with shaping future generations. How will history judge our behavior, our actions. Our Legacy.

Ronen Azulay is an Israeli-born artist, living and working in New York City. Informed by his early career as a men’s fashion designer, his practice examines the role of the consumer in our world of mass production. Using repurposed cast-off denim, leather, and textiles, Azulay’s work actively disrupts the relentless cycle of manufacturing and consumption. With his technical skills and informed eye, Ronen further processes and transforms the materials and incorporates found objects to create a new vernacular in his work.

Guests are invited to view this exhibition on Tuesday, December 5th from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach - My Home

Twenty years after its opening, The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach is welcoming Morris Lapidus My Home, an exhibition of artwork and furniture by famed architect Morris Lapidus to be displayed at the hotel during Art Basel|Miami Beach, Miami Art Week and Design Miami 2023. Considered a masterpiece of his signature MiMo style, the historic property was designed by Lapidus and originally opened 70 years ago as the DiLido Hotel in 1953. The hotel is celebrating the two anniversaries by honoring and exploring the creative genius who transformed the cityscape of Miami Beach.

Among the objets d’art included in the exhibit at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach are Lapidus’ glass dining room table; a coffee table he carved in the form of a Roman sculpture he discovered during his school days in front of the Plaza Hotel in New York City; six porcelain masks he modeled from clay in 1929, mounted on gold frames; light fixtures including a 20th century chandelier he crafted to create the illusion of height in his dining room as well as a sparkling effect with cascading crystals and palm leaves that allow light to create designs on the ceiling; personal paintings; and more.

Exhibit will be open to the public beginning December 5, 2023
