ICYMI: This Is Not America
Last night’s inaugural Faena Festival, This is Not America, kicked off Art Basel week in Miami with performances and installations from a range of artists including Derrick Adams, Cecilia Bengolea, Wu Tsang, Luna Paiva, George Sánchez-Calderón, Tavares Strachan among others. Alan Faena welcomed art world heavyweights to Faena Forum including Casey Fremont, Yvonne Force Villareal, Stefano Tonchi, Amy Sacco and the festival’s curator Zoe Lukov, and carried the party on through the District in a processional that lead revelers from Faena Forum to the beach installations and then to Faena Theater for Wu Tsang and boychild’s finale.
During a week filled with talk of who bought what and spent the most, Faena Festival will offer visitors and locals the chance to view works which are all free and open to the public from December 3rd – 9th. Alfredo Jaar’s seminal work, A Logo for America, will float up and down the Miami Beach coast for all to view.
