With the Art Basel 2018 dust settled, we took a moment to reflect on what was surely our favorite moment: a brunch on December 5 which saw Loupe and TILA celebrate black women artists.
In the whirlwind of Art Basel soirees hitting South Florida this week, renowned Chinese artist Liu Bolin, who is sometimes known as the "Invisible Man," performed a live exhibition, as he was painted amongst a large scale installation of the Ruinart iconic rounded champagne bottles. Cognoscenti from the fashion, art and philanthropy worlds gathered in the Miami Botanical Garden to witness his creation process firsthand.
Art Basel is technically launching this Thursday, December 6th - but that never stops the party from starting a little early. And indeed, Prada kicked off Miami Art Week last night with the opening of their groovy pop-up, Prada Mode Miami - which is a complete take over of Freehand Miami. The lobby, pool area, garden, lounge, and restaurants were all refurnished and redecorated to reflect Prada’s long-standing appreciation of the overriding Miami aesthetic.
