Expanding upon its commitment to offer free, public programming to the South Florida and support artists worldwide, Faena unveils the largest public art installation in the city of Miami Beach during Miami Art Week, curated by Faena Art. Explore your perceptions of light and space with PHILLIP K. SMITH III “20 Degree Arc East-Southeast”. What was once a sacred circle in the desert of California is here converted into an arc that seems to hold the sea, a mirrored cove that opens up towards the Caribbean. “20 Degree Arc East-Southeast” will be on display 24/7 from Dec. 4th – Dec. 9th at Faena Beach.
For months, Wynwood-based artist Peter Tunney carefully collected giant pieces of the infamous Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City. At Faena Beach, Tunney converts these relics into “The Sinking of the Taj Mahal,” a site-specific installation that questions our perception of beauty among ruins. “The Sinking of the Taj Mahal” will also be on display 24/7 from Dec. 4th – Dec. 9th at Faena Beach.
Science/art collective Coral Morphologic, Miami-based artist Kelly Breez and Argentine artist Martin Borini transformed the faÃ§ade of Faena Forum with “Ediacaran Mind,” a curated rotation of 3D-mapped projections featuring digital video and animations to create an immersive visual experience for all who enter the Faena District. Projections rotate hourly and are visible starting at sundown. On display from Dec. 4th – Dec. 9th at Faena Forum.
The OMA-designed Faena Forum is taken over by two monumental site-specific installations â€“ â€œDeXtinctionâ€ â€“ that together convert the entire building into a spectacular multi-sensory experience. On Sunday, Dec. 10th, from 12:00-10:00 pm meet on the roller rink for the latest installment of Second Sundays, an interactive and site-specific installation in which guests of all ages are invited to roller dance over a literal work of art by contemporary artist duo avaf eli sudbrack while live DJ performances by Paperwater and other special guests keep the crowds grooving.
