Pedro Reyes and Carla Fernández win the Design Miami Visionary Award – Back in September, the organization of Design Miami/ announced that Mexican artist Pedro Reyes and fashion designer Carla Fernández were the recipients of the Design Miami Visionary Award for this year. This award was already given in previous years to famous names such as Tokujin Yoshioka, Peter Marino or Zaha Hadid and is awarded to creative talents who have made significant contributions to the world of design, particularly noted for their tangible and lasting impact on the world.
Reyes and Fernández are well-known for their impact on local communities through their individual practices but on separate design disciplines but they mainly focus their work on Mexican indigenous culture, social values in communities, and intimate human interaction in an age of digital exchange. Pedro Reyes’s work focuses on sculptures, performances or video that have the goal to often address current sociopolitical issues.

On the other hand, Fernández’s focuses on textile work that has in mind the cultural heritage of Mexico’s indigenous communities, by partnering with craftspeople and artisans throughout the country that work with centuries-old techniques to create clothing, textiles, and housewares with a contemporary take on handcrafted methods.

These pieces are a part of Carla Fernández’s Autumn/Winter collection for this year.

 

Both artists are also going to exhibit a collaborative and retrospective exhibition in this fair, that will also going to be exhibited at SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) in February 2019. “The exhibition offers us a chance to present to the attendees at Design Miami/, pieces in which design has a social dimension, either by addressing social justice and peacemaking, as well as the importance of handcrafted products in a world where most processes are being automated and millions of people are losing their jobs”, Reyes explained.
The couple also designed the graphic identity of this year’s edition of Design Miami/, coming up with a series of graphics that capture the spirit of protests that took place in Paris and other places around the world in 1968. This identity will be shown into merchandise and into everything that is “Design Miami/” branded.
