SLIDELUCK Miami III  took place on Thursday night of Art Basel Week, December 7, 2017. The night was a collaboration with “Wayside of Versailles” a pop-up art show at El Espacio en Calle Ocho, a raw space in Little Havana produced by Good to Know. It was a sultry evening full of croquetas, empanadas, Salsa music, colorful dresses, fantastic art and the sounds of Cuban Spanish being spoken and Brooklyn beers clinking.

We presented a “Best of 2017” slideshow with a heavy emphasis on works from some of our Spanish-speaking chapters; Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Montevideo and of course, Brooklyn.  A few steps from the Versailles Restaurant, the show and crowd encompassed the heart of Little Havana. There was a great representation of artists from NYC, Miami and elsewhere, as well as the Cuban American and Miami creative communities, drinking cold beers, eating mini Cubano sandwiches and watching a killer slideshow.

Participating Artists:

Alessandra Sanguinetti * Alfonso Amendros * Alvaro Laiz * Andrea Foligni
Bryan Derballa * Cristóbal Carretero Cassinello * Esther Navalón Wamba Fernanda Aramuni * Hiroshi Takagi * Ina Jang * Jasper White * Jon West
Jonathan Tunick * Karolina Wojtasik * Laura Murray
Mike Bellame & George Etheredge * Philip Toledano * Will Lytle

Thanks to Alex Valls and Julianna Vezzetti from Good to Know as well as all of our other collaborators and partners!

Miami Beach was the place to be this week, and the Slideluck Global team was happy to be there after escaping an early spring snowstorm in New York. As the sun went down on South Beach, Slideluckers arrived at the Bass Museum of Art Friday for SLIDELUCK Miami II. Folks had the chance to peruse the museum, including the amazing One Way: Peter Marino exhibit, and then grab an ice-cold Brooklyn East IPA.

By the time showtime rolled around around, the hall was packed with a crowd spilling out into the courtyard where a second slideshow was setup. This show was curated by José Carlos Diaz, the Curator of Exhibitions at the Bass Museum. Dave Greber‘s mystifying video was pure, high-calorie internet, and Cynthia Cruz gave Keyboard Cat a run for its money.  Cat Del Bruno‘s tongue-in-cheek instructional video, and Tomas van Houtryve’s stirring photo story exploring the prevalence of surveillance culture through drone technology provided some food for thought.

Chicken Liquor gave the crowd a send-off into the warm Miami night with a gravity-defying set on the patio. Afterward, a few die-hards crossed Collins Park to Free Spirits to continue the revelry. Special thanks to our partners at the Bass Museum of Art, Offset. Perrier, Souverain, Viewbook, Sandbox Studio, and – as always – Brooklyn Brewery!
