On Tuesday night in Miami, Swire Properties’ Brickell City Centre played host to a crowd of over 400 to kick off Art Basel Miami Beach. The night started with an art and design conversation, followed by a cocktail, and then special performance by DJ Wooden Wisdom—the duo of Elijah Wood + Zach Cowie.
Guests like Hugh Dutton, Bernardo Fort-Brescia, Alison Pickett were the first to see artist Allen Jones’ 20-foot sculpture, Dancers, unveiled that night, as well as the illumination of the Climate Ribbon a massive installation that measures 150,000 square feet of steel, fabric, and glass.
“Swire Properties has supported the integration of art in the public sphere for over four decades, and has sponsored Art Basel Hong Kong since its inception,” said Stephen Owens, president of Swire Properties, Inc. “As Brickell City Centre nears completion, it was an honor to have the opportunity to finally showcase the project during the world’s largest art fair in our city.”
“Swire’s success in developing mixed-use projects across the globe is a direct reflection of its longstanding and treasured relationships with its visionary partners such as Allen Jones, Arquitectonica, and Hugh Dutton,” said Pickett.
“Four years ago I was honored and flattered when Steve Owens and Bernardo Fort- Brescia invited me to join them in the realization of the Climate Ribbon. I am particularly pleased that the public unveiling of this project coincides with Art Basel because I consider our work to be a synthesis of art and science,” said Dutton.
