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.
