Art Basel Recap: PAMM Presents Packs the House
December 11, 2017 by
One of the biggest Art Basel parties happened on December 7th at the Pérez Art Museum Miami. PAMM welcomed nearly 4,700 members and art world VIPs for PAMM Presents, the museum’s signature Art Week celebration, featuring music by DJ Maseo of De La Soul, Young Paris, and Holly Hunt.
The evening began with a Veuve Clicquot Rich toast to Miami-based artists, led by PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans. Poet Aja Monet closed out the toast with a poetry reading of several works. Guests had the opportunity to explore the galleries and special exhibition Dara Friedman: Perfect Stranger, the artist’s first mid-career survey and the largest presentation of her work to date.
Outside on PAMM’s east terrace and beach, guests walked into a magically transformed space by Kim Crawford and La Croix, featuring interactive activations and immersive environments. The music was also on point throughout the evening. From local metal band Holly Hunt to Young Paris, the night culminated with set by DJ Maseo.
Notable guests of the evening included Jarobi White from A Tribe Called Quest; reality TV star Angela Simmons; Emmy and Peabody award-winning anchor Sam Champion; artists Diego Bianchi, Edouard Duval-Carrié, Elizabet Cerviño, Tomás Esson, Felice Grodin, Hew Locke, Beatriz Milhazes, Sandra Ramos, and TYPOE.
