Art Basel at Nautilus South Beach 2018

Art Basel at Nautilus South BeachDecember 3 – 9, 11am-5pm – Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel Lobby, 1825 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach

Viral artist Suzy Kellems Dominik — the visionary responsible for last year’s 12-foot neon sculpture of a vagina that poetically objectified the female orgasm returns to Nautilus South Beach with her latest piece INVISIBLE. On Wednesday, December 5th at 12 PM, there will be an all-female panel discussion inside of the lobby bar to further explore contemporary artistic modes of storytelling, oral history and autobiography as antidote for and vindication of the female condition.

FREE and accessible to the public at the hotel’s lobby, INVISIBLE presents an ongoing examination of the female form through a series of soft-sculpture totems illuminated by a white-neon caption rendered in the artist’s handwriting stating: “for without feet, one cannot escape.” A monumental sculptural installation that surrealistically presents the female body and investigates the social and cultural implications of beauty and age. The installation will be on display Monday, December 3 – Sunday, December 9.

Fab 5 Freddy — presented by Half Gallery and Harper’s Books in the Nautilus Hotel Library, a series of fighter portraits ranging (and overlapping) in subject matter from Boxing Legend Jack Johnson to Kung Fu Master Bruce Lee to Blaxplotation Star Jim Kelly. The new paintings will be debuted with a vernissage on December 4 from 6-9pm. The exhibition will be open to the public from Wednesday, December 5th to Thursday, December 6th from 11 AM to 5 PM. #NAUTILUSsobe
