Friends, new and old, from New York and Los Angeles convened in Miami for Carlos Quirarte and Matt Kliegman’s 2nd annual Westway pop-up at The Shore Club last night.
Lifestyle connoisseurs Carlos and Matt brought together friends from both coasts to celebrate their varied projects during the 11th edition of Art Basel Miami Beach. I stopped by after the opening reception of OHWOW’s It Ain’t Fair to spend some quality time with a few of my nearest and dearest.
Everyone’s favorite lady, Lyz Olko, handled the door, and the highlight of my evening was bumping into Clarissa Dalrymple, curator extraordinaire, on my way in. It was lovely catching up with Sara Watson and Karine Haimo (both dealers) of L&M Arts Los Angeles and Metro Pictures, respectively. The influential crew danced inside and out to the musical stylings of DJ Roctakon and Tim Barber, and at one point, I saw wild one Harry Bee leading a conga line while Amirah Kassem and Noah Wunsch practiced their acrobatic technique.
I was eager to connect art advisor and collector, Kim Light, with one of her new favorite photographers, Terry Richardson.
Caught Jack Grear of The Still House Group with Kris Kaller who is in Miami hosting Art On Air, a mobile radio station. Jack and the boys are opening an exhibition this evening at 1632 Pennsylvania Avenue, Miami Beach, and you can catch Kris on air here.
The Journal Gallery crew – Kaylee Gibson, Sara Hantman and Eric Laine – were out to celebrate an awesome booth at the best of the ABMB satellite fairs, NADA Miami Beach.
Although he made a graciously late appearance, the man at the helm of OHWOW’s Los Angeles gallery, Mills Moran joined the party to celebrate the successful opening of their last pop-up exhibition in Miami.
The Westway Club continues tonight and tomorrow at 1901 Collins Avenue at the rear of The Shore Club from 11PM onward. Cheers!
