There’s a bevy of excellent gallery shows opening in November, so here’s another round!
Volume Gallery is pleased to announce a show of new work by Tanya Aguiñiga titled Driftless Zone.
2012 has seen an increasing amount of American design activity. Both historical and contemporary design is experiencing a reawakening of sorts, and Design Miami/ 2012 is one of the sites where galleries and designers are focusing specifically on the American perspective.

“We believe that designed objects are the visual representation of progress. Historically, design has been a direct reflection of the society from which it was created and utilized. Through exhibitions we are not looking to answers questions, but to add to the discourse of the ever changing landscape of contemporary American design.”
