Aric Chen is highly regarded among the architecture and design industry since he has been the creative director of Beijing Design Week, curatorial adviser to the Cooper-Hewitt Design Triennial, Gwangju Design Biennale and Shenzhen’s Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture. Chen also focuses on providing a Chinese talent with an international platform and contributes with critical pieces to major publications such as The New York Times, Wallpaper or Surface.
“I am thrilled to join Design Miami and bring a new and different perspective to the fair,” said Chen in a statement released following the news. “Design Miami’s unparalleled position in the design world as a platform for innovation, education, and philanthropy is something I look forward to being a part of.”
The news comes after it was revealed back in August that Chen was leaving his role as lead curator of Hong Kong’s still yet-to-complete M+ Museum, that he had started six years ago, to instead become a curator-at-large.

According to the interview that Chen granted to Architectural Digest, he said that he was curious to explore “(…) the observation, or argument, that while design used to be about commodity, and things you could sell, and were purposefully commercial, whereas art has always been more about ideas, now, in some ways, that [idea] has kind of inverted and art has become much more about a commodity—and design has become much more about ideas. I think that’s an interesting phenomenon, and I hope we’ll be able to touch on that a little bit.”
The fair’s current chief creative officer, Rodman Primack, ends his journey in December but will remain as the global ambassador for Design Miami/.
