Artsy x Gucci Host Top Art Basel Party With A$AP Rocky
December 7, 2017 by
Last night, December 6, Artsy Projects Miami Presented by Gucci and BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Gin celebrated the works of artists FlucT, Samara Golden, Maria Nepomuceno, and Jillian Mayer. Held at Miami hotspot The Bath Club, the exclusive fete featured a special performance by Devonté Hynes (better known as Blood Orange.)
A few hours into the fete, FlucT took the center stage and performed a violently intimate dance that left the audience speechless. The performance addressed issues in the capital obedience of American culture and aim to expose the psychology of social paradigm.
As Devonte Hynes began to play a piano ballad, A$AP Rocky out of nowhere jumped onstage to tell the crowd to quiet down. Talk about #bestfriendgoals, A$AP Rocky shouted, “If you want to talk right now, get the fuck out the room mother fuckers, there’s an artist on stage.” See our instagram story for the full smackdown.
Art and fashion worlds collided as guests explored the role of artists within the shifting currents of today’s culture through a live, multi-sensory experience that drew themes from past and present trends. As the night went on, attendees enjoyed specialty cocktails by Bombay Sapphire inspired by the artists’ creations and small bites.
Guests included President & CEO of Gucci Marco Bizzarri, Hannah Bronfman, Carter Cleveland, Susan Chokachi, Sebastian Cwilich, Kim Drew, Simon Haas, Misha Kahn, Karen Robinovitz, Timo Weiland, and Chloe Wise.
