Tuesday, March 15, 6pm-9pm – Casa Claridge’s, 3500 Collins Ave, Miami Beach
Cuban born artist Beatriz Monteavaro’s “Return to Tomorrow” -Â a lo-fi, slow motion, rocket ship to outer space, debuted at Casa Claridge’s on March 15, 2016 presented by Faena Art. The opening party buzzed with sangria, champagne, cocktails and beer along with small bites including peanut-glazed chicken skewers, empanadas and mini pork-belly sliders. Invitees gathered to observe the main exhibition, a glow-in-the-dark futuristic transformation of the hotel elevator, located in the middle of the grand room of the hotel. This is the fourth site-specific commission as part of the Faena Art Elevate series, a platform for rotating installations of emerging to mid-career, Miami-based artists.
