Hyperallergic is happy to announce that we’ll once again be hosting a cocktail party in Miami next week, as part of the art world’s annual pilgrimage.
On Friday, December 6, from 6 to 8 pm, we invite you to join us at Aqua Art Miami (1530 Collins Avenue, South Beach, FL) for evening cocktails, music, and Perrier. The party will be a chance to catch up with Hyperallergic editors and readers during the busy week, and to explore Aqua’s offerings from nearly 50 galleries, with a focus on emerging and mid-career artists.
Last year’s Hyperallergic party in Miami was a resounding success, and we expect the same this year. Once again, it will be an RSVP-only event, so make sure you register online for a spot.
We’re very excited to learn that celebrated painter Jonathan Grossmalerman has agreed to join us and and will be documenting the goings on in his own inimitable “hands-on” style that in no way opens us up to possible legal action. Dance and have your photo taken with legendary Painter. A guy so fun the Limelight had a dark VIP room “where you could go and not be bothered by anyone for a while” named after him.
See you in Miami!
The Guest List for this event is now full. Thank you!
