The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum opens Narciso Rodriguez: An Exercise in Minimalism, its inaugural couture exhibition, on now until January 8, 2017. 

The exhibit features 40 garments and purses alongside a variety of works of arts that illustrate how the Cuban-Amercian designer blends together his minimalist style with intricate garments that focus on structure, texture and clean lines. 

A favorite of celebrities such as Claire Danes and first lady Michelle Obama, Rodriguez received international acclaim when he designed the bias-cut sheath wedding dress Carolyn Bessette wore when she married John Kennedy, Jr. in 1996. 

Though Narciso Rodriguez is widely-regarded in the fashion industry, this will be his first solo exhibition documenting the evolution of his work. The exhibit is co-curated by Alex Gonzalez, the Creative Director of ELLE Magazine, in partnership with the Frost’s curator Klaudio Rodriguez.

German Pop artist Thomas Bayrle's first US solo museum exhibition, "One Day on Success Street" is now open at ICA Miami. The exhibition dedicated to the artist features over 75 works from the 1960s through the present day, showcasing works across a range of mediums including collage, painting, and sculpture. 

A highlight of the show is Wire Madonna, the artist's largest sculpture to date, was commissioned by the ICA for the museum's unique Atrium Gallery, and depicts a madonna and child in steel. The artist is known for his exploration of the impact of technology on humans through pop art and conceptual forms. 

This will be the last exhibit in the museum's current location before it moves to its new home in the Design District in 2017. The exhibit closes March 27th.
