If Miami Is Sinking Then We’re Going down Too

We joined forces with de Pury de Pury, Goga Ashkenazi, Hossein Rezvani, and Virginia Black last night to launch our one-of-a-kind "Weather Patterns" exhibition in Miami

Miami might be sinking beneath the sea (look to our upcoming Severity Issue for more details) but last night the city's buoyancy was sky-high as we joined with de Pury de Pury and Goga Ashkenazi to launch our one-of-a-kind "Weather Patterns" exhibition.

With a crowd of art world luminaries and the chicest Miami folk we took to the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center Performance Hall at Miami Beach for an exhibition that showcased visionary video works by artists: Marina AbramovićDoug AitkenEd AtkinsDarren AlmondHeike BaranowskyJonathan HorowitzAntti LaitinenJon RafmanRachel RoseTomás SaracenoFiona Tan, and Wolfgang Tillmans.

With sublime cocktails to sip on, courtesy of Virginia Black, we both kicked back, then kicked shoes off, to dance all night to performances by Viktoria Modesta, and Damian Lazarus, in the sumptuous setting that was enriched with an installation of one of Hossein Rezvani's fabulous art rugs, accompanied by a film of Rezvani interpreting our special limited-edition Severity Issue art cover (by photographer Sebastian Copeland) into an objet d'art.

As the pastel sunset crossed the dark night, and the dawn lifted from the rising, rising, oh'o-Miami-the-sea-is-rising, Atlantic Ocean, we got ready for the pending Art Basel Miami fair, which may keep the tides at bay, yet is sure to drown in fabulous once again in 2016.
