Women of Renaissance presents our first annual fashion show, breaking the silence against domestic violence by inspiring women through fashion.
Lots of people think about Vizcaya’s gardens as a place to take a leisurely stroll, sit under the oak trees to enjoy a quiet afternoon, or alongside the bay and watch the boats come and go. All of these are good. But what people don’t do is PLAY – so we’re fixing that.
Taking inspiration from the 1920s, when Vizcaya was James Deering’s private home, we’re putting together a game night in the gardens – think lawn bowling, yard dice and croquet. We’ll have musicians sharing some great jazz sounds and there will be lots of yummy bites and refreshing drinks. We encourage guests to embrace the era and come in their seersuckers or other period attire – because anything worth doing is worth doing right!
You are invited to join X Contemporary 2016 from Nov 30 – Dec 4, 2016, located at the brand new Nobu Hotel Miami Beach. We open with a private preview for press and VIP cardholders on November 30, from 10am – 1pm, followed by general admission that day from 1pm – 7pm. Uniquely staged in two floors of event space flooded with natural light, plus outdoor gardens with beach access, X Contemporary’s second edition will be recognized for introducing compelling narratives that slow down the viewing experience. Not only traditional galleries but also rarely-exhibited private collections, private dealers and independent curators will participate alongside specially curated exhibitions.
Highly anticipated exhibitions include “The Women Who Made Modern Art Modern,” curated by Michael Klein. This untold story profiles 16 art dealers active in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, all whom were women, and all who helped shape the careers of America’s most important 20th Century artists.
X Contemporary’s leadership team has multiple decades experience in gallery direction, curating, private dealing, and scholarship. Owner and Executive Director Crystal Curtis;Consulting Curator Michael Klein.
The event runs November 30, December 1, 2, and 3, with indoor exhibitions closing to the public Saturday December 3. The outdoor feature will be open to the public and Nobu Hotel Miami Beach guests on Sunday December 4 until 5pm.
