Pop-ups — special selections of artist-designed items — are cropping up all over South Florida this week for Art Basel Miami Beach.
From towels to T-shirts, the limited-edition items will be available at fairs, museums, hotels and shops.
Here are some of the highlights:
• The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami and Fontainebleau Miami Beach are introducing limited-edition items featuring artwork by British artist Tracey Emin, commemorating Emin’s first U.S. museum exhibition during Art Basel Miami Beach Week.
The items, which include a limited-edition beach towel, flip-flop sandals and T-shirt, will be available for purchase at the MOCA Shop and at Fontainebleau during Art Basel Miami Beach week, and online at mocanomi.org and fontainebleaushop.com.
The double-size beach towel is 100 percent velour cotton and has an image of Emin’s neon work Kiss me Kiss me Cover my Body in Love (2010), $95.
The unisex rubber flip-flops feature Emin’s neon work I Kiss You (2004) on the bottom of the sole, which leaves an imprint of the image on the sand, $30. The V-neck T-shirt also features the work Kiss me Kiss me Cover my Body in Love (2010), $50.
Also available at MOCA are ornaments, $40; mugs, $20; plates, $25; and magnets, $5, by the artist.
• At NADA, British artist Peter Saville has produced a series of tea towels for House of Voltaire, with designs derived from food packaging print and construction markings that he has been collecting since the mid-1980s. The towels, in an edition of 200, are available individually, $30, or as a set of six, $175.
Also for House of Voltaire, artist Matthew Brannon has created a beach bag with the ambiguous statement “WHY YOU DON’T IS WHY I DO.” The beach bags will be in an edition of 200 and will be $30 each.
