Unveiling of Jeff Koons' "Ballerina and Pluto and Prosperina"Friday, December 2, 7pm-10pm – Oceana Bal Harbour, 10201 Collins Ave, Bal Harbour

It was a beautiful night under the stars and by the sea to debut the completion of the ultra-luxe condominium tower Oceana Bal Harbour, developed by Eduardo Costantini‘s Consultatio, and the vernissage of its multi-million-dollar sculptures by artist Jeff Koons. Guests enjoyed an evening of art, live music, libations and conversations with billionaire developer and art tycoon, and the most expensive and prolific living artist in the world, and some of the most important figures in the art world, to debut one of the most impressive permanent art installations in a residential complex.

Pluto and Proserpina and Seated Ballerina, are making their permanent home at Oceana after whirlwind museum debuts. Pluto and Prosperpina arrives after being on loan by Costantini to the Whitney in NYC, the Pompedou in Paris and the Guggenheim in Spain. This is the time the art of a residential development was on loan to a museum tour. Seated Ballerina was flown in from Buenos Aires where it was unveiled by Costantini and Koons at MALBA, the museum of Latin American art that Costantini founded. In May Costantini paid $15.7 million for a Diego Rivera, setting a world record for any Latin American work of art. Ten meditative and reflective abstracts by Taryn Simon, Callun Innes, Garth Weiser, Juan Usle, An Te Liu and Jorge Mendez Blake round out the Oceana prized art collection and will be on view for the first time on December 2. All the art will be collectively owned by the residents through the Oceana Bal Harbour condominium association.

Fear Less will showcase the work of a varied mix of outstanding artists – some household names in the street art world, others up and coming. In addition to Hiratsuka, artists include AVAF (Brazil), Beau Stanton (CA, USA), Case (Germany) Dasic Fernandez (Chile) David Choe (CA, USA), Faith47 (South Africa), Felipe Pantone (Spain), Findac (UK) , Okuda (Spain), Pixel Pancho (Italy,) Risk (CA, USA), Tatiana Suarez (FL, USA) .

ORA Miami Nightclub Opening WeekendDecember 1 – 3, 11pm-5am – ORA, 2000 Collins Ave, Miami Beach

ORA is bringing glamour back, with its luxe décor, impeccable service and multi million-dollar design.

ORA will deliver on the promise of elevating the nightclub experience where thoughtful touches, tableside mixology, and old-world service and appeal.

It’s only appropriate that ORA is launching in time for Art Basel, with its artistic décor created and executed by world-renowned French designer Francois Frossard. For ORA, Frossard, whose most recent masterpiece was the redesign of iconic club Queen Paris, has produced a lavish and dramatic interior, featuring a cathedral ceiling, classic boiserie paneling throughout, marble bars, sleek and sexy banquettes and state-of-the-art lighting fixtures.

Sipping a perfectly shaken martini in high style is now a reality. In the upstairs Anti-Social room, cocktailing will reign supreme with an innovative menu and personalized cocktails, including a “chronological flight” of martinis that features four mini martinis in their most popular formulations spanning from the late nineteenth century to today.

For its opening week, ORA’s programming will be the zeitgeist of nightlife, with the best DJs, parties and art fairs. On Thursday, December 1, ORA will be awash in champagne as Perrier-Jouët, the world’s most iconic boutique champagne house hosts a private event.
