Miami Art Week may be almost over, but there’s still so much going on. Below, you’ll find details on events like Chanel’s cocktail at its new boutique, a birthday party with Futura, and more.
Starting off the week of parties and previews, Kering, PHAIDON, Christie’s, and Saint Heron celebrated new publication WOMAN MADE: Great Women Designers with a dinner hosted by Solange Knowles on Monday night. Welcoming guests to Craig Robins and Jackie Soffer’s home in Miami Beach, an exclusive guest list—including names like Chloe Wise, Daniel Arsham, Aurora James, Kerby Jean-Raymond—enjoyed cocktails and entertainment by DJ Rashida before dinner commenced. After a sumptuous meal by Michelle Bernstein Catering, a toast to the book’s featured designers (including those present, like Latifa Saeed, Monling Lee, and Mimi Shodeinde) and announcement of the upcoming Saint Heron Ceramics Artist Residency ended the night with anticipation of things to come.
Wednesday evening’s happenings kicked off with the artist Kennedy Yanko and designer Harry Nuriev at Faena Hotel’s Saxony Bar. Here, Yanko and Nuriev (who is the Founder of Crosby Studios) invited guests to commemorate their respective Miami Art Week projects—which included Yanko’s presentation at the Rubell Museum and Nuriev’s ethereal installation at Design Miami/, titled The Bedroom.
Next was an intimate gathering in honor of Futura’s birthday. Hosted by Eric Firestone Gallery, ICNCLST, and Diageo, the renowned artist and friends like Pharrell Williams, A-Trak, Mad Steez, Sky Gellatly, and Chris Stamp enjoyed with a rooftop view a curated meal, music, and a special menu of cocktails featuring Ketel One, Crown Royal, and Don Julio.
The evening ended with a late-night party at Red Rooster’s new location in Overtown, hosted by Salvatore Ferragamo and Cultured Magazine. Centering the artists Derrick Adams and Hugh Hayden as the evening’s honorees, partygoers like Venus Williams, Mia Morretti, Jacolby Satterwhite, Gaia Matisse, Isolde Brielmaier, and Winston Duke came together to celebrate several occasions, including the return of Art Basel, the launch of Cultured Magazine’s new Young Artists issue, and the opening of the restaurant, which will serve as a cultural hub with an impressive collection of modern art.
