Here’s one of the art talk shows we hosted during UNTITLED, Art on Miami Beach, December 2016 via Wynwood Radio. We’re thrilled to add our energy to an art fair that’s more of an international exhibition than any other we’ve encountered. In this segment, you’ll hear host Cathy Byrd in conversation with Christie van der Haak on More is More. In wrapping The Wolfsonian’s iconic facade with her signature tapestry and batik-inspired patterns, The Hague-based contemporary artist Christie van der Haak created a striking encounter with contemporary Dutch design.
Christie van der Haak is from The Hague, the Netherlands, studied design and fashion before becoming a painter interested in high color and decorative patterns. Her intricate and colorful patterns and designs are translated into tapestries and wall coverings, often creating immersive environments.
Sharon Aponte Misdea is Deputy director of collections and curatorial affairs at the Wolfsonian, dedicates herself to the preservation and interpretation of the modern design museum’s collection.
Silvia Barisione is a curator at The Wolfsonian whose research focuses primarily on 20th century design and prewar Italian architecture. She is curator of the Modern Dutch Design exhibition at The Wolfsonian.
The Wolfsonian–FIU is a museum that explores the inventive and provocative character of the modern world. Through objects and design, it reveals how the past influences the present and shapes the future.
