Ernesto Oroza and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

Harpo Foundation funding provided support for a site-specific project by Ernesto Oroza, a Cuban interdisciplinary artist and designer based in Miami whose work focuses on conceptual design and architecture. Ernesto Oroza’s project took place at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, a former residence modeled after European archetypes of comfort, aristocratic lifestyle, and sociability.


For his project, the artist used theoretical and practical approaches to interior design as tools to analyze the place and develop new ways to interpret the objects and spaces of the Museum. This investigation focused on the material culture that has given form and meaning to Vizcaya, and the ways in which Vizcaya is digitally appropriated and reinvented by its visitors today.
