The Best of Miami Art Week

  • Share

Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel, threw its hat in the Miami Art Week ring for the third year last week and, boy, it was one to remember. Beyond what was happening at Art Basel, NADA, CONTEXT, and beyond, the hotel itself was filled to the brim with gorgeous (and wonderfully relevant) eye candy. Suzy Kellems Dominik‘s “I Can Feel” made neon-lit waves on the walls, while Friedrich Kunath and the late Rene Ricard held court outside with “Fuck It, I Love You” and “Then Love Takes Us” respectively. In the words of SIXTY co-founder Jason Pomeranc, this year’s theme was all about “the nexus between art and literature”–something you would have seen prevalent in the works Sarah Bahbah‘s film-still-inspired series, also on display.

Beyond higher culture, things were happening in the #SIXTYbeach tent, where we teamed up with NYC’s Up&Down to throw some of the best parties in town on the late-night. Over the course of the week, we hosted Hypebeast, W Magazine, ACRIA, Whitewall, Socialista, and many others. And a handful of Lower Manhattan’s most enduring personalities made the scene at a showing of Paul Sevigny’s works, presented by Half Gallery’s Bill Powers and Jason Pomeranc. In those famous words of one Julius Caesar: we came, we saw, we conquered–and now it’s time for a nap. Below, we’ve got highlights from the week. See you next year, Miami.
