Your Ultimate Guide to doing Art Basel the Right Way
As the highly anticipated Miami Art Week returns, Magic City is gearing up for a week full of public art installations, pop-up events, exhibitions, immersive activations and fairs. Below we've included our guide to special events that will guide you through this infamous week.
“No One” by Giorgio Tentolini Opening Event
On Wednesday, November 29, at 6 p.m., Arlo Wynwood is debuting a thought-provoking
exhibition with Italian artist Giorgio Tentolini called “No One.”
Art enthusiasts can obsess over the exhibit during this special unveiling event to showcase his pieces that explore the complexity of identity in the digital age. Prompting viewers to question what’s real and what’s virtual, Tentolini’s work has been showcased in prestigious museums such as Italy’s Museo d’Arte della Città di Ravenna and Museo di Salò. He incorporates facial features and body parts from classical sculptures that dissolve into a sequence of mesh wire and tulle as viewers near them. Guests can head to MaryGold’s by Brad Kilgore on the first floor for a special Art Week menu, including a new dessert that showcases a playful reflection of Tentolini’s mesh wire compositions. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees must RSVP via Eventbrite.
