Dennis Carvajal's Guide to Art Basel 2014

Post Author


It’s every art lovers favorite time of year– Miami Art Week. The week of festivities throughout the city attracts vast media attention as art enthusiasts, design aficionados, and celebrities flood the city for the world renown Art Basel Miami Beach. Nearly 75,000 people are expected to descend on Miami as the city–from Miami Beach to the Design District– transitions to an art world wonderland filled with high-profile exhibits, art galleries, galas, cocktail parties and more. With so much to choose from, I’m sharing my top picks from ONE Sotheby’s exclusive Insider’s Guide to must-see events this week.

“MEEM 4 Miami:  A Story Ballet About the Internet”: ABMB presents contemporary artist Ryan McNamara’s audience-immersive, multi-genre dance performance. Set to jazz and classical remixes the ballet explores how people share online content. Tickets are available for shows on December 3 and 4 through Miami Grand Theater at Castle Beach Resort.

“Shen Wei—In Black, White & Grey”:The Chinese choreographer who blew away audiences with his 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremonies brings his talents to Miami for an exhibit combining his first-ever viewing of large-scale paintings and site-specific performances by his dance troupe on December 5-7, at the Freedom Tower.

600 Biscayne Boulevard;

“Playing with Shapes: Pierre Paulin, 1972”:  Interior design collectors will not want to miss Louis Vuitton’s Design District event. Held at a third-floor exhibition space in the neighborhood’s Palm Court through Dec. 7, the house has recreated 18 one-off pieces of groovy modular furniture (origami-inspired, low-level seating, curvy aubergine sofa) by Pierre Paulin that he originally envisioned for American furniture manufacturer Herman Miller. Lucky for collectors, each is for sale.
