Planar To Showcase Cutting-Edge Digital Displays In Partnership With 50 Artists During Design Miami & Art Basel Miami Beach

Stocks in this article: PLNR

Planar Systems, Inc., (NASDAQ:PLNR) a world leader in specialty display solutions and an innovator in architectural displays, today announces the brand’s creative partnerships and VIP events to take place in Miami with Surface Magazine, Samsung Semiconductor, and others during Art Basel Miami Beach and related shows.

Planar’s large scale, architecturally-designed video displays will create cutting-edge exhibits for select curated artists in key venues. Planar will also support the PULSE art fair with a featured video art presentation. Beyond digital signage, Planar continues to illustrate thought leadership in the architectural display market, by providing solutions to the fine arts and collectibles marketplace.

Planar’s debut at Design Miami launches at Avant Gallery in creative partnership with Surface Magazine, the official media sponsor of Design Miami, at a by-invitation press and industry event on November 30 th starting at 6PM at the new Avant Gallery pop-up venue located in Miami Beach at 309 23 rd Street. This year the spotlight will be on top industrial design and furniture artists Chad Jensen, Michael Philip Wolfson and Pryor Callaway, at a third-annual exhibit entitled ”Pictures + Furniture.”

“We are excited to explore the digital display realm with noted artists and Planar video walls for the very first time at our new gallery,” says Dmitry Prut, Founder of Avant Gallery in Miami Beach.

The evening will commence with an industry-leading, TwitSalon event hosted by the social media firm Adroyt, gathering journalists and industry design experts in tandem to provide live commentary about the vibrant 15-artist exhibits on display. The @AvantGallery and @PlanarVideoWalls dedicated hashtag for #DesignMiami will be @Adroyt Salon #PicturesFurniture and will commence at 6PM onsite at the gallery.

Planar’s innovative technology will bring each of the three exhibiting industrial artists’ exhibits to life, with exciting video displays on architecturally-designed media walls soaring 10 feet in height. Avant Gallery’s event immediately follows the ‘Vernissage’ official opening for Art Basel Miami Beach held the same night. BRAVO TV will be filming the work of select fine artists for the second season of Work of Art.

Planar is equally pleased to announce that Cristin Tierney Gallery is exhibiting at the PULSE contemporary art show, where multi-media artist Yorgo Alexopoulos’ work “No Feeling is Final” is featured, with Planar’s Clarity™ Matrix LX-46 media wall for this special debut. The installation will be for sale in limited edition, through the Cristin Tierney Gallery.

At this year’s Miami SOLO, presented by Artexpo, Planar will be demonstrating further thought leadership by showing two prototypes of the digital canvas in partnership with Samsung Semiconductor, featuring curated work by 30 emerging artists. Samsung’s SM’ART™ liquid crystal panels capture the texture of original painting while illuminating the colors of art with an LED backlight.

These displays go beyond traditional commercial or television products, and have been designed for the display of fine art with optical enhancements, electronics, and architectural frames worthy of an institutional or individual art collector. Planar and their residential brand, Runco, will be seeking conceptual feedback from the art community to inform ongoing product development in this arena.
