Art Basel Miami Beach, North America’s most comprehensive international contemporary art fair returns to the Miami Beach Convention Center December 1 to 4, 2016, drawing over 73,000 art dealers, artists, collectors and aficionados to Miami during the fair. In addition to the many satellite fairs, Miami Art Week boasts many cultural events, such as two special events organized with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States: the ABECEDARIUM at the Pérez Art Museum Miami, and the first-ever scrolling novel, PHALLAINA as part of the opening of Faena Forum.

ABECEDARIUM: The Masquerade Ball from A to Z
December 1, 2016, 11 am - 4 pm
Pérez Art Museum Miami
1103 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL

Limited availability, please RSVP at kimberley.gaultier@diplomatie.gouv.fr

Masks and costumes, carnival and transvestism, the 3rd edition of the ABECEDARIUM, an international travelling project by Alexandra Midal, initiated by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States as part of the French-American program « Oui Design », will explore twenty-six topics related to the Masquerade Ball from A to Z: from its fashion accessories to its political agenda, from paganism to secret society. Twenty-six iconic issues from the universe of masquerades, spanning the early 18th century to the present, will be discussed by a dynamic roster of doers and thinkers such as designers, artists, curators and scholars, who will explore these topics through each letter of the alphabet in a five to seven minutes vignette.

The ABECEDARIUM  is initiated with the support of FACE Foundation, Institut Français-Paris, French Ministry of Culture and Communication, Florence Gould Foundation, Carisam-Samuel Meisel and Dr. Fausto de la Cruz.

Limited availability, please RSVP to reserve your spot!

On Sunday, Miami's luxury FAENA district inaugurates its Forum, designed by Dutch star-architect Rem Koolhaas, with a grand opening parade "Side by Tide" directed by curator and art historian Claire Tancons. 

Faena Forum will also program cultural events during Miami Art week, including the first-ever scrolling novel, projected in an immersive 360 FaenaArt dome, the interactive Phallaina Experience. In a world where cities struggle to adopt to rising sea levels, Audrey discovers she posseses an anomalous cerebral structure, enabling her to hold her breath underwater for a very long time...

The Phallaina Experience, created by Marietta Ren and produced by Alexandrine Stehelin and her team at the Paris-based Small Bang Interactive Studio, is presented by FILMGATE MIAMI in partnership with the French Embassy Cultural Services.
