The location - Nomad-Circle Capri
Conceived in 2017 by Giorgio Pace and Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte, NOMAD has successfully completed eleven editions in St. Moritz, Monaco, Venice, and Cannes (virtual). Created as a concept that is set up to travel the world, NOMAD frequently announces a new destination. By doing this, NOMAD responds to a steadily growing interest in collectible design and contemporary art among collectors and cultural institutions. Each edition hosts leading international galleries, standout exhibitions, and ad hoc special projects in extraordinary architectural locations.
NOMAD establishes a unique dialogue between art, architecture, and design in a very intimate setting. It hence aims to rethink how cultural agency is represented. It is a bespoke fair for a select audience looking for an experience which is different to the one typically found at large-scale fairs.
In addition to the main event, NOMAD boasts a distinguished VIP program, consisting of talks by prominent designers and artists, architect-led tours of local landmarks, and invitations to private homes or collections that inspire visitors and participants alike and allow for spending rare moments with new acquaintances, future colleagues and old companions.
Homegrown, disruptive and dedicated to advocating for creative communities in the Global South, DESIGNEAST is a new platform committed to reframing the narrative around contemporary designand high-craft, and shifting the gaze on creatives from traditional markets to exceptional talent and emerging design thinking from under-represented territories.
