LIBATIONS, a pre-Basel intervention 

Part performative, part storytelling, LIBATIONS was created by author, artist and speaker Octavia Yearwood to examine our lens of perception and to refocus on human connection. Video, photography and social practice are layered into this multidisciplinary work, which will rely on your participation to fulfill its purpose. 

Please bring an object that for you symbolizes what it means to give—and be prepared to give it up. With this simple gesture, giving LIBATIONS together will pay homage to the experiences and people that have made you who you are today, and brings your individual story to our collective whole. 

Join us on Tuesday, November 27 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm for LIBATIONS at Soho Beach House. Bring an object, champagne toast with your fellow Collectors, and glide into Miami Art Week with an open heart and passes to some of our favorite fairs. 

LIBATIONS, Commissioner edition, is hosted by Octavia with guest artist Morel Doucet.

For Collectors and Patrons. This invitation is for two. RSVP essential basellibations.eventbrite.com

The Price of Everything | Film Screening

The Price of Everything | Film Screening

7:30 PM Prompt
Screening & Introduction by Laura Raiffe of Art Market Liaison 

Exploring the labyrinth of the contemporary art world, The Price of Everything examines the role of art and artistic passion in today’s money-driven, consumer-based society. Featuring collectors, dealers, auctioneers and a rich range of artists, from current market darlings Jeff Koons, Gerhard Richter and Njideka Akunyili Crosby to one-time art star Larry Poons, the film exposes deep contradictions as it holds a mirror up to contemporary values and times, coaxing out the dynamics at play in pricing the priceless.

Introducing the film is Laura Raiffe, founder and CEO of Art Market Liaison in Miami. Laura’s experience working with the world’s leading auction houses and Miami’s top contemporary art galleries brings an informed perspective to collecting and selling art. 

The Price of Everything premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and was produced by Jennifer Blei Stockman and Debi Wisch for Hot & Sunny Productions and Carla Solomon for Anthos Media. Lisa Remington and Kayla Malahiazar acted as co-producers. The film is edited by Sabine Krayenbühl, with additional editing by Phillip Schopper and Brad Fuller. Lensing is by Bob Richman and music is by Jeff Beal.

Complimentary tickets sold out. To purchase tickets, visit downtownmiami.silverspot.net.
