Well, it was most certainly a whirlwind, but SIXTY’s first venture into the deep waters of Miami Art Week was a success. Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel, open since just this fall, played host to art installations, surprise performances, dignified luncheons, and just enough debauchery to quicken the pulse. What’s high culture, after all, if not juxtaposed against a bit of low? During the day, we had installations with both Artsy and Depart Foundation. In the early evening, parties with everyone from Flaunt Magazine to Interview. And, on the daringly later side, our beach-side tent offered revelers a place to party into the wee hours of the morning, only to wake up and do it all again. Herewith, we’ve selected some of our favorite moments from the week. Until next year, friends.
