Art Basel Miami Beach Oceanfront Nights

Art Basel Miami Beach 2010 Oceanfront Nights: Presented by Art Basel Miami Beach and Creative Time

This year, Art Basel Miami Beach hosts a nightly program at the Oceanfront, organized by Creative Time, sited in an environment designed by Phu Hoang Office and Rachely Rotem Studio. The pavilion uses two types of rope – reflective and phosphorescent – to create a diverse and interactive environment of open-air structures that sway and glow in the night.

The 2010 Oceanfront Nights program features four cities at the forefront of today’s artistic experimentation and cross-disciplinary collaboration: Detroit, Mexico City, Berlin, and Glasgow.From December 1 to December 4, each night will spotlight one city with film, music, video, performance and more. Art Basel Miami Beach and Creative Time invited four organizations to partner on creating the program – the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit, Museo Tamayo in Mexico City, 032c in Berlin, and Tramway in Glasgow.

The Oceanfront at Collins Park, between 21st and 22nd Streets is free and open to the public from Dec 1 – 4, 2010, 6pm to midnight, with refreshments provided by the Oceanfront bar and a selection of local food trucks. For more information:
